Ingredients

  • 4-5

    cups cooked chicken, cubed*

  • 2

    cups broccoli florets

  • 1

    medium onion, diced

  • 8

    ounces softened cream cheese

  • 1

    cup chicken broth

  • 1 1/2

    cups shredded colby jack cheese

  • 2

    tablespoons fried onions (optional)

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 X 13 pan with non-stick spray. Place chicken and broccoli in a large mixing bowl. I used raw broccoli; I like mine to be crunchy. If you like your broccoli to be soft, steam it in the microwave 2-3 minutes first. Sautee onion in olive oil with salt and pepper. When onion is soft and slightly brown (about 3-5 minutes), add cream cheese to sautee pan. When cream cheese is melted, whisk in chicken broth until the mixture is smooth. Allow to simmer for about a minute, or until sauce thickens slightly. Add cream cheese and onion mixture to chicken and broccoli. Mix well. Add 3/4 cup of the shredded cheese and mix again. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Spread evenly in baking pan. Add remaining 3/4 cup cheese and fried onions on top. Bake for 25-30 minutes until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbling.
