1 1/2 pounds fresh broccoli, cut into bite-sized pieces
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
1/2 cup milk
2/3 cup sour cream
1 (10.5 ounce) can condensed Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken soup
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 cups chicken, cooked and cubed
3 tablespoons panko bread crumbs
1 tablespoon butter, melted


Step 1

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Step 2

Place the broccoli in a large pot of boiling water, and cook until just tender but still crisp on the outside, about 2-3 minutes. Make sure to drain the broccoli well.

Step 3

Using a medium mixing bowl, add together the milk, 1 cup of the cheddar cheese, the sour cream, the condensed soup, garlic powder, onion powder, dry mustard, pepper, and salt.

Step 4

Stir the broccoli and chicken into the soup mixture.

Step 5

Spread the mixture into a 9x13-inch pan.

Step 6

Sprinkle the top with the remaining cheese and the panko bread crumbs.

Step 7

Bake the dish until the bread crumbs are lightly browned and the cheese is bubbly, about 18-20 minutes.

Step 8

Serve over rice, noodles, or even mashed potatoes.
