Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Casserole is an easy casserole made with cornbread stuffing and two types of cheese. With chicken and broccoli in every bite, it’s a filling meal the whole family will love.
Casseroles are one of my favorite things to make for a family meal. They are economical, feed a crowd, and leftovers reheat well.
This Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Casserole can be assembled in 10 to 15 minutes and then it just needs 30 minutes to bake.
Start by sauteing some diced boneless chicken breast and chopped onion. You don’t need to worry about getting the chicken cooked all the way through. It will finish cooking in the oven.
Mix the chicken and onion together with a can of condensed cream of chicken soup and a can of condensed Broccoli Cheddar Soup. The soup will add even more broccoli and cheese flavor to the casserole.
Just add the cans of soup undiluted, straight out of the can.
For cheese, add 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese and 5 slices of American cheese cut into pieces, plus a bag of thawed frozen broccoli and some cornmeal stuffing mix. As with the soup, add the stuffing mix straight out of the box or bag, without adding anything to it.
Transfer the mixture to a 9×13-inch baking dish and bake for 30 minutes. So easy!

Wow! It looks so delicious and wonderful! I like the cheesy chicken and vegetable! But Could I use cauliflower instead of broccoli? Is it change the tastes?
This is so delicious, my boyfriend said it’s his favorite thing I’ve ever cooked for him, so that’s mid is def a winner! And I’ve made this twice and never saw the note at the bottom to not make the stuffing on the stovetop lol but I have made it both times with the stuffing after making it on the stovetop and we honestly love it! I highly recommend trying it that way!!
This looks absolutely delicious! I am going to make this for Thanksgiving! I’m thinking of adding red potatoes to it 😋 . Can’t wait to try it (:
A hit with my husband. He has a heart condition, so I eliminated the salt and it was tasty! I made a double batch, cooked them both, then froze one. Making double batches makes my life easier. Found white cheddar slices at store that carries Boars Head products. Thanks for this recipe.
What do you think about freezing before you bake?
My husband absolutely loved this – for that, I give it 5 stars. For me…it was a little dry, but it tasted great! Thank you.
Just pre-made this .. now waiting for this evening to bake it!!! Omgosh it looks delicious now!!! Can’t wait till supper tonight!!! I’ll let you know what we think about it!!!
When do I add the cornbread mix do I make it on top of the stove first according to the directions on the box or do I just add in casserole like that? Thank you
I add it without cooking. I just mix it with the chicken, broccoli, etc. straight from the box.
I used my stuffing as a topping and it came out delicious. Definitely a keeper recipe. ☆☆☆☆☆
Does this freeze well?
I haven’t frozen this particular recipe, but it should freeze well.
Hi! Can I sub cheddar instead of American?? Thanks!
When do you add the cheese?
My family loved it! I added some extra Parmesan on top while it was in the oven. So yummy I will be making again.
Do you know the nutritional value
wondering if the cubed chicken flavored stove top can be used. Or is this what your talking about.?
Did you add the seasoning pack from the Stove Top Stuffing?
Yes, add the seasoning packet.
Cornbread stuffing. Just add the bread cubes and seasoning packet not mixed together? Sorry need help thanks dolly
I’m sorry, I forgot to give it 5 stars!!
OMG this is so yummy! I made it tonight for me and my husband; he said it’s a “Keeper”! We really enjoyed this recipe. Thanks so much for your recipes and website. Keep up the good work!
Looks absolutely yummy . Think you gonna have a old southern man in the kitchen rattling some pans
tonight .Thank you for the great recipe and God bless .
Hope those pans were rattling away! 🙂
I was reading over the recipe and if it was me I would use cheese curds from Elsworth Wisconcine
The recipe calls for “White American Cheese”….. did you type that in error and meant American Cheese? If it’s not a typo then could you please give me some more information on brand of White American Cheese . I really want to try your recipe … it sounds yummy! 🙂 Thanks.
You should be able to find White American cheese at the store. I know Kraft makes it. If you can’t find the white, just use the yellow. They really don’t taste that different.
Thanks for your quick reply! I’ll look for the white (Kraft) and if I can’t find it, I’ll use the yellow. Thanks again for the recipe. 🙂
