Broccoli is my favorite vegetable so this Frugal Chicken and Broccoli Casserole was always going to be a hit with me. Fortunately the whole family enjoys it too and, because there was hardly any conversation during dinner, I know that everyone was happy with the dish. I added some crushed fresh garlic but otherwise followed the recipe as shown. It is really very good!

Guess what's for dinner tonight. All the ingredients are here except that I have thighs instead of breasts but that will make my husband happy. Always looking for something a little different for chicken besides pasta. and this surely fits the bill.
