Recipe: Chicken Broccoli Casserole

So yesterday we shared our favorite recipe for cream of mushroom soup. While the recipe is good enough on its own, it can absolutely also make a great ingredient, and that's what what we wanted to share today. For a great family recipe that calls for some cream of mushroom soup, take a look at this chicken broccoli casserole!

We were looking for a great recipe that was not only packed full of flavor, but also pretty simple. Nothing screams simplicity quite like a casserole. We already have a lot of ingredients in our mushroom soup, so we wanted to keep this as simple as possible. We also love casseroles with a crunchy crust, so we mixed together some cheese and bread crumbs to bake and brown on top. Keep reading below for this great recipe...
