Cheesy Chicken, Broccoli, and Quinoa Casserole

Hello everyone!

This afternoon I wanted to share a recipe I tried last week that turned out to be delicious! I was looking for something to make for supper that included broccoli because my husband made a Costco run on his own and came back with a three pound bag of broccoli! I then decided to give this casserole dish a try 🙂

Ingredients:

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into cubes
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup quinoa
  • 1 can (10 oz) cream of chicken soup
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese
  • black pepper to taste

I like this recipe because everything is cooked in one pan and clean up time is very minimal! Start by heating some oil in a big skillet. Add the chopped onion, garlic, and chicken. Cook on medium heat for a few minutes until the chicken starts to brown a bit.

Add the quinoa, chicken broth, and cream of chicken soup. Cook (covered) over medium heat until the quinoa is fully cooked (about 15 minutes).

Then add half of the cheese and the broccoli to the casserole. Continue cooking for 2-3 minutes to allow for the broccoli to soften. Sprinkle on the remaining cheese and you’re done 🙂
