Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Bake

Some nights just call for that old-fashioned classic dinner from your childhood. Or at least at my house it does.

This Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Bake is comfort food but also incredibly quick and easy. That’s pretty much the way I like it. Easy, simple and a nice hot meal – making weeknight dinner an absolute breeze!

Cheesy Broccoli Chicken Bake

This super simple, toss the ingredients together meal, came out of a community cookbook my mother had in the 80’s when community cookbooks were all the rage.

There was a reason they were all the rage. They were filled with tried and true, usually quite simple recipes that families devoured and wanted again and again.

I love to use them to cook out of and we always change things up and make them our way. Do you every do that?

I’ve tweaked this one a little here and there and made some minor adjustments to add a little more flavor, but overall, it’s still close enough to its original.

It’s a nice warm meal on a busy night and the whole family will love it.

Really, it doesn’t get much simpler than that. You can add some jalapenos for some extra flavor or use a few herbs to bring out a different flavor. I think that’s what I love most about dishes like this.

It’s very easy to simply make them your own.

So what goes well with this?
