BYOL Recipe: Chicken Broccoli Supreme Casserole #BYOL


By Fausto Mendez

    Every week, we suggest a fascinating, unique and delicious dish that is easy to make or reheat at your office lunchroom. This week’s #BYOL recipe: Chicken  Broccoli Supreme (Casserole.) 

    If you’re a fan of the blog, I’m sure you know that I’m a fan of a well made casserole, and the best casseroles, in my opinion, are always based on traditional dishes. This delicious concoction transforms the traditional chicken, broccoli and cheddar dish into a deliciously crumbly casserole that daunts everything your co-workers bring for lunch the next day, but enough talk. Let’s cook. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.

Step 0 – What’s Cooking?


 + One pound of broccoli, chopped and steamed for 2 minutes

+ Three cups of chicken breasts, chopped 

+ One and a half cups of grated cheddar cheese

+ Two tubes of good-ol’-fashioned Ritz crackers

+ One stick of butter

+ One tablespoon of poppy seeds

+ Sauce: 1/3 cup melted butter, ¼ cup cornstarch (dissolved in ½ cup cold water), 1/3 cup chicken broth, ¼ tsp. salt, ¼ tsp. pepper, 2 cups milk, 1 ½ cups of cheddar cheese. 

Step 1 – Lay It Down and Cook It Up


+ Grease a 13 x 9 pan. Layer the breast pieces and broccoli how you’d like. 

+ Now, let’s make some sauce. Add to a saucepan over medium heat: butter, cornstarch, chicken broth, seasonings, milk. Stir until the sauce is rather thick. 

+ Reduce the heat. Throw in the cheese. Stir until the cheese completely melts. 

Step 2 – Drop it Like It’s Hot


+ Drop the delicious sauce over the chicken and broccoli.

+ Sprinkle the rest of the cheese over the chicken and broccoli. 

+ Crush the Ritz crackers into crumbs.

+ Melt the butter stick. Butter burns easy, so be careful. Add the poppy seeds to the butter. Add about the crumbs to the butter.

+ Drop the mixture of butter and crumbs onto the cheese and broccoli. 

Step 3 – Get Baked


+ Do not cover the pan, and bake at 350 degrees for thirty minutes, or until bubbly.
