Recipe Notes

Cooking for a Smaller Family? Cut all of the ingredients in half (for instance, use 2 cups of chicken, one 12-ounce package of broccoli florets, l can of soup, etc.) and bake the casserole in an 8-inch square dish. Cooking time remains the same.

Want to Prep Ahead? Assemble this casserole in advance and keep it covered in the refrigerator until ready to bake. It should be fine for up to 24 hours, or you can freeze it (before baking) for up to 3 months.
