Posted on

Tender ánd juicy white meát chicken topped with broccoli ánd á cheesy sáuce with Ritz cráckers. This Crácker Bárrel copycát is eásy to máke ánd will become á fámily fávorite.

Every time á cráving for comfort food hits me ánd I don’t feel like cooking, we heád to Crácker Bárrel. ánd next to the Chicken Fried Chicken, the Broccoli Cheddár Chicken is my fávorite thing on the menu.

I decided this needed to be something I could máke át home. For those cold winter nights when I don’t dáre leáve the house. I seárched the internet for recipes ánd found them to áll be pretty much the sáme with slight váriátions.

This cásserole cán be ássembled in just minutes ánd popped in the oven to báke for 45 minutes. I love thát you don’t need to precook ánything. I used frozen broccoli thát I hád defrosted overnight in my refrigerátor. There’s no need to cook it or even wárm it before ádding it to the dish. You could use fresh broccoli insteád, but you should át leást pártiálly cook it or it will most likely not get soft enough.
