Broccoli Chicken Casserole

You know a casserole is good when your crew wipes out the whole dish. :)  This was a real hit with the family.  The seasonings from the stuffing mix come through and help give it some good comfort food flavor, without the heaviness.  This was a tasty one that didn't take long to make.  In the words of my hubby, "You can definitely make this one again!"
Don't mind if I do.

Lyd's Tip: I don't know about you, but when I throw raw broccoli into a casserole, it always comes out kind of crispy still- just seems like it takes longer to cook.  I like to put it in a microwave safe bowl and nuke it for just a few minutes before I put it into the casserole so that it comes out tender and tasty... instead of totally raw... which is probably better for you, but hey, don't push me, at least I put it in. :)

Broccoli Chicken Casserole (Taste of Home)
1-1/2 cups water
1 package (6 ounces) chicken stuffing mix
2 cups cubed cooked chicken
1 cup frozen broccoli florets, thawed
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed broccoli cheese soup, undiluted
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

In a small saucepan, bring water to a boil. Stir in stuffing mix. Remove from the heat; cover and let stand for 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, layer chicken and broccoli in a greased 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish. Top with soup. Fluff stuffing with a fork; spoon over soup. Sprinkle with cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 30-35 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 6 servings.

I made this the other day and Chris just RAVES about it. He came home for lunch at like 11:00 to ensure that he would get to eat the leftovers! Thanks for sharing. This one's a keeper!
