A creamy and comforting Chicken and Broccoli Casserole Recipe made with fresh broccoli. Super simple, inexpensive to make, and totally delicious.
  • 8 ounces uncooked egg noodles (**See Note**)
  • 1 tablespoon oil
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 5 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 8 ounces sour cream (can use light)
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt (I used Nature's Blend -- so good & with less salt)
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup Panko breadcrumbs + 1 tablespoon oil
  • '
  1. Preheat the oven to 350. Spray a 2½ quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Start a large stock pot of water and cook the egg noodles according to package instructions.
  3. While the noodles cook, heat the oil in a medium skillet. Add the chicken pieces and cook for about 5 minutes, or until cooked through. Take the chicken off the burner and drain the pasta.
  4. Add the cooked pasta, cooked chicken, fresh broccoli, cream of mushroom soup, sour crea, black pepper, and seasoned salt. Stir to combine. Add 1 cup of the cheddar cheese. Stir and pour everything into the prepared baking dish.
  5. Sprinkle the top with the remaining 1 cup cheddar. Combine the breadcrumbs + olive oil and sprinkle over the top.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes. If you like your breadcrumbs toasty you can broil for 1-2 minutes before taking the casserole from the oven.
1. Egg Noodles usually come in 12 ounce packages. You can use the whole package but for me it was too much noodle and not enough of the good stuff. But it's totally up to you.
