Chicken Broccoli Cheese Casserole
The cheesy chicken broccoli bake is quite simple to make and very satisfying. It is one of the easiest chicken casseroles I’ve made. It is simply cooked chicken, broccoli florets, condensed cheese soup, a little milk and French onions.
What to do with Leftover Chicken
Store bought rotisserie chicken is quite delicious when you buy it hot. Once it has gone in the fridge, I think it needs a bit of help to be palatable though. I often make copycat chik-fil-a chicken salad or keto chicken salad, but sometimes I am just not in the mood for something cold. For warm meal options, I like to turn to comfort food options such as Cheesy Buffalo Chicken Pasta or this casserole. Of course, chicken quesadillas are a quick and easy option too (toss in some canned black beans to extend the chicken if needed).
