If you enjoy chicken and broccoli recipes, you’ll love this easy Broccoli Bacon Cheddar Chicken dinner. All you do is throw chicken breasts in a casserole dish, then top with the rest of the ingredients and bake for 30 minutes!
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 4 chicken breasts (use 4 thin chicken breasts, or use 2 large chicken breasts, sliced in half, horizontally)
- salt and pepper
- 2 cups broccoli florets, blanched, chopped
- 6 strips bacon, cooked, chopped
- 1/3 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
- 1 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
Preheat the oven to 400 F.
Grease the bottom of the casserole dish with olive oil. I used the the oval casserole dish measured 13 inches x 9 inches x 4 inches deep.
Add chicken breasts to the casserole dish. Note about chicken: use 4 thin chicken breasts, or use 2 large thick chicken breasts, sliced in half horizontally each to make 4 thin chicken breasts.
Sprinkle chicken breasts with salt and pepper.
Top with chopped and blanched broccoli florets.
Top with chopped cooked bacon.
Top with shredded Mozzarella cheese.
Top with shredded Cheddar cheese.
Bake, uncovered, for about 20-30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of your chicken breasts.
