This easy casserole full of chicken, broccoli, mushrooms and cheese with a crunchy Ritz cracker topping is a comforting dinner that cooks in one dish!
This casserole uses precooked chicken and staple ingredients that are also budget-friendly. A major bonus is that just 10 minutes prep time is needed to get it in the baking dish to go into the oven!
Your Simple Ingredients
I love dinners that include ingredients that I normally have on-hand and this recipe is just that. It calls for a bag of frozen broccoli florets (chopped into about 1-inch pieces) but I’ve also used baby broccoli florets (they’re smaller so they don’t need chopping). You can also substitute bread crumbs for the crushed crackers.
I use only ¼ teaspoon of salt in this recipe because the soups, cheese and jarred mushrooms add enough salt for my taste, but feel free to add more if you’re a salt lover.
This is such a breeze to throw together! Simply combine the ingredients (except the cracker topping) in a large bowl, transfer to a prepared baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven, add the crushed crackers and bake for an additional 10 minutes. DINNER = DONE.
I hope you and your family enjoy this casserole as much as I have over the years!
