Chicken Broccoli Casserole Recipe
I have just been waiting for the day when my husband would confess to broccoli being a tolerable vegetable. We dated for three years and have been married for nearly 4 years, so I have been waiting for quite awhile. Why was I waiting for him to like broccoli? For this recipe alone. I love it. Have always loved it. Would love to make it often. But alas, it has broccoli.
Then it happened. The moment I had been waiting for. One night at dinner I had served Isaac broccoli and all of a sudden my husband looked at me and declared that he liked broccoli. The skies opened up the sun shone. . . .okay, okay, I am getting carried away now. He did declare that he liked broccoli though despite his attempts to disdain it for so long.
So I dusted off this recipe and went to work. And the verdict from the newly converted broccoli eater? He LOVED it. He kept going on and on about how great it was. And I went on and on about how he had missed out on it for the last 6.5 years. (As only a good wife would do.)
Since this meal contains a vegetable, a protein and a grain I usually just serve a nice salad with it. It is absolutely delicious though. And it looks beautiful too! It is great to take to a large gathering or just to serve for an easy dinner. And PERFECT for when refrigerated biscuits go on sale at the grocery store.
