Copycat Cracker Barrel Broccoli Cheddar Chicken
This yummy Cracker Barrel casserole with Ritz cracker topping is an all-time favorite!
Copycat Cracker Barrel Broccoli Cheddar Chicken is a deliciously cheesy and crunchy chicken casserole that couldn't be easier to make! This recipe will keep you full long after dinner is over, but you're sure to be dreaming of this recipe for days to come.
Made with onions, broccoli, chicken breast, cheese and Ritz crackers, this is one of the more budget-friendly recipes you're likely to find. If you love the version you've had at Cracker Barrel, why not try making your own at home this week? It's likely you have most of these ingredients at home already anyhow!
You will notice that our version uses Mexican 4-cheese blend, but feel free to substitute Cheddar cheese instead! We love how the 4-cheese blend melts in this recipe, but if you're missing the Cheddar flavor from the original feel free to make the swap.
