Chicken Broccoli Casserole

My mother in law made this for my husband when he was in college-it was always his favorite meal to come home to.  We had it for our rehearsal dinner, as well.  It feeds a lot of people, and satisfies the need for comfort food :).

Chicken Broccoli Casserole

*6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cooked and cubed
*2 10 oz packages broccoli, prepared according to the package (I like the chopped broccoli, but the broccoli cuts work as well)
*1 8 oz package of shredded cheddar cheese
*2 cans cream of chicken soup
*1/2 c Miracle Whip (DO NOT substitute mayonnaise)
*1 box chicken stuffing

*In a buttered 9×13 dish, layer the broccoli on bottom.  Arrange the chicken on top of the broccoli.
*Mix the soup and Miracle Whip in a bowl, and heat in the microwave for about a minute.  (This will make it easier to spread).
*Spread the Miracle Whip and soup mixture over the chicken.

*Sprinkle the cheese on top.

*Fix stuffing according to the directions, and spread over the top of the cheese.

*Bake 1 hour at 300 degrees.

**Since my boys don’t care for their food to touch, such as in a casserole, I split the recipe between a 8×8 and a 9×9 pyrex dish.  This makes two meals for Derrick and I.

**This dish freezes well, and it is easy to prepare several for freezer cooking. 

**I often serve this with a salad.  It makes for an easy weeknight meal if you prepare it beforehand.

  1. That looks good, but how does the miracle whip taste in there? I hate the flavor of it!

  2. This looks good, if I freeze it, how long do you think I should cook it for to serve it?

  3. This sounds so yummy! I've had chicken and broccoli casseroles – but never with the stuffing. I've got this one bookmarked to try soon!
