Chicken Broccoli Casserole

Chicken and Broccoli Casserole Recipe

Everyone loves a good casserole and they are such an easy meal idea. Here’s my healthy take on a family favorite.

Tip to Include the Kids:

I love to let my kids help cook whenever possible. We have the crinkle cutter with the wooden handle from this set and I love to let the children help chop the chicken and grate the cheese if I use it.

Letting the kids help cook is one of the ways I help them learn to love a wide variety of foods and avoid picky eaters. Now that they are older, my kids are actually a tremendous help many nights with cooking and the time I spent letting them “help” when they were younger has paid dividends (though I still have a two-year old to create the obligatory messes and spills while she helps).
