Chicken & Broccoli Crock Pot Casserole Recipe

Pin It
Who doesn't like a good casserole?  I know I do.  I especially love casseroles that come together quickly, easily, and include veggies.  This was a good casserole that my whole family enjoyed.  It was fun topping it with Cheez-it Crackers and I think it would be really good with the Tabasco flavor.

You will need a Crock Pot, Onion, Frozen Broccoli, 3 Chicken Breasts, Chicken Broth, Salt & Pepper, Corn Starch, Cheez-It Crackers, and Shredded Cheese.

Take half of the Shredded Cheese and add in the Corn Starch.

Mix it together well coating the Cheese.

Toss the Frozen Broccoli, Onion, and coated Shredded Cheese into the Crock Pot.

Cube the Chicken and season it with Salt & Pepper then add it into the Crock Pot with the chicken Broth. 

Stir everything together and top the Crock Pot with the lid and set to low for 5 hours or High for 3 hours.

You can use rice..but I am a lover of Quinoa.  It cooks quickly and is more nutritious than Rice.  It is my favorite thing and I suggest you give it a try.

Rinse the Quinoa well.

I added some of the left over Chicken Broth to a medium Sauce pan.
Then I added the rinsed Quinoa and cooked according to package instructions.

Measure out the Cheez-It Crackers on a plate.

Then crush them up coarsely with a fork.

Not a very pretty picture..after the cooking time has completed give the contents in the Crock Pot a good stir. 

Toss in the rest of the Shredded Cheese and mix it in well.

See how pretty the cooked Quinoa is!  I love it!

Place the Quinoa on a plate.

Top with the Chicken Broccoli Casserole and top with the crushed Cheez-It Crackers.  Enjoy!
