Copycat Broccoli Cheddar Chicken
Cracker Barrel copycat. I think they only have this on their menu for their Wednesday special. It was sooo delicious, I had to try it at home. Both my husband and daughter say this is a keeper. Mouth watering delicious!
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon pepper
- 1 cup milk (I used whole milk)
- 1 can cheddar cheese soup
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 6 oz. shredded Cheddar cheese
- 8 oz. frozen chopped broccoli, defrosted
- 1 1/2 – 2 cups crushed pieces Ritz crackers
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a casserole dish. Season chicken with salt and pepper and place in prepared dish.
In a medium bowl, mix together milk, soup, paprika and cheddar cheese. Pour half of the cheese mixture over chicken. Scatter broccoli pieces over cheese mixture. Top with Ritz cracker pieces and remaining cheese mixture.
Place in oven and bake for 45 minutes.
(I use the smallest chicken breasts that I can find, but if you need to use larger ones, I cut them in half horizontally. If you use the larger and don’t cut them in half, they will need to cook longer by at least 10 minutes.)
Also, if you like a crunchy topping, mix 1/2 cup of the crumbs and a tablespoon of melted butter and sprinkle on top.
