Chicken Broccoli Bake

Chicken Broccoli Bake
Recipe from My Name is Snickerdoodle:

-3 cups cooked and shredded chicken / I used those pre-cooked grilled chicken strips from Aldi. Fresher chicken may have been better, but this got the job done.
-2 cups cooked and chopped broccoli
-2 (14 oz) cans cream chicken soup / Aldi only had 10 oz cans, so I used three and didn’t scrape out the can, just dumped it. So I figured that way, I would get the 28 oz I need instead of the full 30. Guess it worked?
-3/4 cup sour cream
-1/4 tsp pepper
-2 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded and divided
-3/4 of a sleeve of Ritz Crackers, crushed or 1 1/2 cups dry bread crumbs / I used what was left of a box of Naan Crackers from Trader Joe’s that I had, I did about 1 1/2 cup of those, but it didn’t cover the dish as much as I wanted.
-6 tsp butter, melted

Making the Thing
1. Preheat oven to 375.  In a large bowl combine chicken, broccoli, cream soup, sour cream and pepper.  Add in 1 cup cheddar cheese and mix.  Pour into a 2 qt baking dish.  Top with remaining cheese.  In a small bowl, combine melted butter and crackers (or bread
crumbs).  Sprinkle evenly over casserole.  Bake at 375 for 30-35 minutes, until bubbly and cheese is melted.

Pretty simple, but this is a good recipe for when the weather is cold and you don’t want to exert a lot of effort on dinner. It’s very good served over rice!
