Creamy Chicken Broccoli Casserole

For an easy weeknight meal the whole family will love, this creamy chicken broccoli casserole is at the top of my list. A family favorite for sure. It’s creamy, dreamy delicious. Make one for your family and enjoy!

This easy-peasy casserole is one I make for family and friends since they request it often.

And, they adore this dish.

It’s also a great dish for company and potluck dinners.

Made with meat chicken and fresh broccoli in a creamy sauce that’s very similar to Alfredo Sauce.

However, this recipe is a bit lighter and when you bake as a casserole the top gets a little crispy and just perfect.

Serve with a green salad and some yummy garlic bread for a wonderful weeknight or anytime meal.
Also, there’s another easy and delicious recipe for some garlic bread made with crescent rolls.
