Skinny Chicken Broccoli Casserole

Prep time: 20 minutes

Cook time: 20-25 minutes

Yield: 5 servings

Serving size: About 1 cup


  • 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 14.4 oz package frozen broccoli, broken apart
  • 10.75 oz can reduced-fat cream of mushroom soup
  • 2 Tbsp light mayonnaise
  • ½ cup reduced-fat, shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional*:
  • • ¼ cup crumbled crackers (optional)
  • *Optional ingredients are not included in nutrition calculations.


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cut chicken into bite sized pieces.
  2. In a large skillet, sprayed with cooking spray, place pieces of chicken in skillet and cook over medium-high heat until there is no more pink in the centers (about 10 minutes).
  3. In a large bowl, combine mayo, cream of mushroom soup, frozen broccoli, and shredded cheese. Stir.
  4. Add chicken to broccoli mixture and stir until everything is coated evenly.
  5. Pour contents of bowl into a 9x13 inch baking dish lightly sprayed with cooking spray.
  6. Now, this next step is optional - but I did it once and it stuck. Sprinkle cracker crumbles over the top of the mixture to add some crunch.
  7. Bake for 20-25 minutes.
