  • 3 cups boneless, skinless, chicken breasts, cooked and diced
  • 2 packages (10 ounces each) frozen broccoli cuts, cooked and drained
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) 98% fat-free cream of chicken soup
  • 3/4 cup non-fat evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 cup reduced-fat shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup Italian-flavored dry bread crumbs
  • 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
  • Cooking spray


  • Heat oven to 350F degrees. Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, toss together the cooked chicken and broccoli.
  • In a smaller bowl, mix together the soup, milk and lemon juice. Add this to the chicken and broccoli and stir to combine.
  • Spread the mixture evenly into the greased baking dish.
  • Sprinkle with the shredded cheddar. Toss the bread crumbs and parmesan together and sprinkle evenly over the top of the casserole.
  • Spray lightly with cooking spray.
  • Bake, uncovered, at 350F degrees for 25 to 30 minutes, or until bubbly.

Recipe Notes

For a quicker, easier dish, make this when you have leftover turkey or chicken to use.
Substitute asparagus for the broccoli and Swiss cheese for the cheddar for a change of pace.
If you don't have bread crumbs, use crushed cracker crumbs, potato chips or corn chips instead.
