This is one of my family’s favorite casseroles and I figured out that it can be made either in the oven or the crockpot, making it very versatile. I’m in love with my slow cooker. There are many nights that we wouldn’t be having dinner at all if I couldn’t put it in the crockpot to cook.
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 bunch broccoli (I used frozen that I cooked till tender)
2 cups cooked, chicken
2 cans cream of chicken soup
3/4 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp. lemon juice
about 1/2 cup of grated cheddar cheese
Put the chicken in the bottom of a crockpot or casserole dish, if you’re baking it in an oven. Layer the broccoli on top of the chicken. Stir together the soup, mayo and lemon juice. Spread this mixture over the broccoli. Top with the cheese. Bake in an oven at 350 degrees for 45 minutes or so. Or cook in a crockpot on low for 4-5 hours.
I think if you didn’t cook the broccoli, but left it frozen you could extend the cooking time in the crockpot if needed. After I put mine together the other day, I wondered if that would work. If someone tries it, please let me know.
