I may have gone a little overboard with the boxed stuffing mix this year. Initially, I bought a couple boxes to make the Stove Top stuffing meatloaf and pork chop and stuffing bake recipes on our other site.

Then, I got more boxes for our apple cranberry walnut stuffing and chicken and stuffing casserole. It seems like there were a couple of other recipes in there somewhere, but I can’t think of think right this second. You get the picture though, right?

Somewhere in all of that I decided to make John a chicken and broccoli casserole and used stuffing as the topping. And, he loved it, so I’m making it for y’all, too!

It’s made with rotisserie chicken (super easy!), broccoli florets, shredded cheddar cheese, seasoned boxed stuffing mix, and a couple of other simple ingredients. This chicken casserole makes a great dish to serve alongside a Thanksgiving turkey or on a busy weeknight.

Storage

Refrigerator: Store any leftover casserole in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The casserole will keep for up to 4 days.

Freeze: Let the baked casserole cool completely, then wrap tightly in plastic wrap followed a layer or two of aluminum foil. Freeze for up to 2 months.

Thawing and Reheating: Thaw the casserole in the fridge then heat in the oven on 350°F until warmed through. Warm individual servings in the microwave on half power until heated to the desired temperature.

Tips

  • Blanch or steam the broccoli. The broccoli will soften some as it cooks. If you’d like to precook it and soften it even more, blanch or steam it before adding it to the cream of chicken soup and rotisserie chicken. Make sure it’s well drained!
  • Cream Soup. Use any variety of condensed cream soup you have on hand or make homemade cream of chicken soup. Some tasty options are cream of mushroom, cheddar cheese soup, and cream of celery.
  • Make it lower sodium. Several of the ingredients in this recipe have a fair amount of sodium. Here are some tips on how to reduce it:
    • Use low-sodium broth.
    • Make homemade chicken instead of using rotisserie chicken.
    • Purchase low-sodium stuffing mix.
    • Use low-sodium or no sodium added soup, or make your own.
    • Reduce the cheese to 1/2 cup.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I double this recipe?

Yes, this recipe easily doubles, but you’ll want to divide it between two separate pans or use one very large aluminum baking pan (the large disposable kind).

Can chicken and broccoli stuffing casserole be made in advance?

Yes, it can! My personal preference is to make the filling, cover it tightly so the plastic wrap is touching the filling, and refrigerate it overnight. Then, the following day add the stuffing and bake!

You can also completely assemble the chicken casserole, wrap it tightly to prevent the stuffing from drying out, and refrigerate overnight. Bake it the following day as written in the instructions.
