This Chicken and Broccoli Casserole with Mayo is so simple to make, you probably have the ingredients in your pantry and fridge right now! It tastes like a Sunday dinner, but it’s easy enough to prepare any night of the week.

Chicken and broccoli casserole with mayo is one of my husband’s favorite dinners.

His mom made it often growing up, so I decided to continue the family tradition. It’s such an easy dish to make and pretty cheap too. I often have all of the ingredients on hand already.

However, it always felt like it was missing something so I decided to start serving it over white rice.

The creamy sauce soaks into the rice and it pulls the dish together perfectly if I do say so myself 😉

Ingredients

3 chicken breasts

1 12 oz. bag frozen broccoli

1 can cream of chicken soup

½ cup mayonnaise

1 tablespoon lemon juice

½ cup milk

¼ teaspoon pepper

½ teaspoon paprika

Grated parmesan cheese

Cooked white rice

How to make Chicken and Broccoli Casserole with Mayo

COOK: Cut chicken into cubes and cook in a frying pan until done. Cook broccoli in the microwave in the package (if it’s steamable) or in a microwave-safe dish with a little water in the bottom.

LAYER: Layer in a 9 x 13 casserole dish.

MIX: Mix remaining ingredients, except cheese, and pour on top of the chicken and broccoli.

SPRINKLE: Sprinkle with cheese.

BAKE: Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes until heated through. Serve over cooked rice.

Recipe Tips and Substitutions

You can prepare the chicken a number of ways. I like to cube it and cook it in a frying pan. You could also boil the chicken breasts and cut them. Or you could prepare the chicken in your Instant Pot and shred it.

If you don’t like frozen broccoli, you could substitute fresh broccoli. The frozen broccoli is definitely more convenient, though.

If you want an extra creamy sauce, add in another can of cream of chicken soup. My sister-in-law made it this way recently and it was super tasty!

You can substitute sour cream for the mayonnaise.

Try adding breadcrumbs with the parmesan cheese for an added crunch!
