One of my go-to meals is a rotisserie chicken from the deli counter at the grocery store. It is quick, pre-cooked, and goes well with anything. It’s also a great meal on grocery shopping day, because I know the last thing I want to do after lugging grocery bags is preparing a full meal.
With rotisserie chicken on the brain, I stumbled upon a recipe for a casserole that would jazz things up a bit. This is great for a quick evening meal when most of the lift is done for you.
Cheesy Chicken Casserole
1 rotisserie chicken [I put mine in the refrigerator so it wasn’t hot, but it doesn’t matter the starting temperature]
16 oz bag of frozen broccoli florets
11 oz of cream of mushroom soup
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. At the same time, boil a few cups of water in a saucepan. Once the water hits a boil, pour in the broccoli. Once it hits a boil again, drain the broccoli.
2. While boiling, shred the chicken meat using a fork and/or your fingers.
3. Mix chicken, broccoli, cheese, and soup together in a bowl
4. Put entire mixture into a baking dish and cook for 25 minutes.
5. Scoop and enjoy!
YUM! Although it is a little more legwork than just serving rotisserie chicken straight up, the cheesy goodness makes it worth it. Definitely a good one to keep in your pocket. Also, second day leftovers would be equally as delicious.
