Get ready for a homemade meal your entire family will love any night of the week. This Chicken and Broccoli Casserole is comforting, delicious and family friendly. In fact, this past Mother's day, my 5yo daughter wrote on her "all about mom worksheet" that this chicken casserole recipe is her favorite thing I cook! Need I say more?!

Looking for a way to get your family to eat more vegetables? Sneak them into a casserole! Adding broccoli to this chicken casserole is a great way to get more vegetables into your families diet.

I decided to use Greek yogurt in place of sour cream or mayonnaise to lighten up and add more protein to the dish; and guess what, nobody in my family has ever known the difference!

Ritz crackers mixed with melted butter creates the perfect crunchy, and savory topping!

Just look how creamy and delicious this casserole looks. Pair it with a salad, brown rice or mashed potatoes for a well rounded meal. I hope you and your whole family love this dish as much as mine does.
