Baked Chicken Broccoli Dish


Recently I was joining my neighbors for dinner and wanted to make a main dish from items I had in my pantry and freezer.  I discovered this recipe in the Cornerstones Cookbook published by the Assistance League, Marshalltown, IA in 1976.    My Mother gave me this cookbook, on my 23rd birthday and it has become one of my ‘go-to’ cookbooks.

This casserole was a hit and will now join my list of favorite recipes.


2 packages frozen (or fresh) broccoli
2 cups chopped, cooked chicken or turkey
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup sour cream (or greek yogurt)

1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
1/4 cup melted butter
