Broccoli Cheese Chicken Bake Recipe {Easy Dinner Idea}

With just 4 ingredients, this broccoli cheese chicken bake recipe brings all the delicious flavor of comfort food into a dinner that is almost too easy to make on a busy weeknight!

Broccoli Cheese Chicken Bake Recipe- My dream come true! All the goodness of broccoli and cheddar cheese baked over chicken and it is SO easy to make!

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Campbell Soup Company. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you can’t tell by all of my previous easy chicken bake recipes, this meal has become the go to dinner for busy week nights in our home.  They are great because you can throw them together in minutes, they are a super hearty dinner filled with wholesome white meat chicken and packed with veggies, and they bring together some of our favorite flavor combos in a super easy package.

These Easy Chicken Casserole Bake recipes are easier to put together than a crock pot recipe and have so much more flavor and texture! The best!

One of the popular questions I get about my blog is where I get my recipes.  I find inspiration all over, but the real answer is that I mostly make them up by taking flavors my family loves, and foods my kids will eat and package it together in a recipe that is easy enough for me to make when I am short on time and have three kids begging for attention.  The chicken bake recipes are a pretty simple formula: chicken + themed seasonings + veggies + cheese = delicious balanced meal in minutes.  Since I know my family loves it and all my kids will eat it, I look for new flavors or seasonings that we love and adapt them to fit my formula.

One flavor combo that has been on my to make list for quite some time is broccoli cheese.  I knew this would be a big hit because it is super kid friendly and one of my husband’s favorites.  I was a little stuck though because making a cheese sauce would make the recipe a little too time intensive for a busy weeknight, so the idea has just been sitting at the back of my mind waiting for an epiphany.

Then I saw this  Campbell’s Oven Sauce in Cheesy Broccoli and BOOM!  It was done!  This was the missing piece of the puzzle for the dish I had been wanting to create and gave me just the help I needed to be able to make it super simple for a busy weeknight.

Campbell’s new products comes in varieties for Slow Cooker, Skillet, Oven and Grill Sauces and all sorts of flavors, which can make dinner a breeze whatever way you want to cook or are craving to eat.  You can find more delicious Campbell recipes here.

When I promise quick, this dish won’t disappoint.  It will be prepped and to the oven in about 10 minutes, or maybe even less!

Broccoli & Cheddar Cheese! My FAVORITE flavor combo!!! This easy Broccoli Cheese Chicken Bake recipe can be prepped in 10 minutes!!

Ingredients:

  • Chicken Breast
  • Campbell’s Oven Sauce: Cheesy Broccoli Chicken
  • Frozen Broccoli Florettes
  • Cheddar Cheese

UPDATE:  I have questions for those that can’t find the sauce about a substitute.  I tried this recipe this past weekend using 2 cans of Condensed Campbell’s Broccoli Cheese Soup and it turned out great! Just replace the oven sauce in the recipe with the condensed broccoli cheese soup (do not dilute) and you should be in business!

Grab your baking dish.  I use a 2 qt pyrex because it fits 3 chicken breasts perfectly.  Place your chicken breasts flat on the bottom of the dish.  Put the frozen broccoli florets on top of the chicken and then spread the Campbell’s Cheesy Broccoli Sauce over the top of the broccoli evenly.  Sprinkle the cheddar cheese on top of the dish and it is ready to go in the oven. Bake at 400F for 45-60 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through, and you have a hot, fresh family meal ready to go! As promised… couldn’t be easier and you will be head over heels for the creamy, cheesy goodness.

Note: I cook mine on the lower middle rack and have not needed to cover it, however each oven varies in size and true temperature, so keep an eye on it and if it gets to where you don’t want it to continue to brown, loosely cover with a piece of foil for the remainder of the cook time.

This easy broccoli cheese casserole is my kids FAVORITE dinner. It only takes 5 minutes to throw together before you pop it in the oven! Mom win!

I have talked a lot about how easy this dish is, but let’s break from that for a minute and talk about how crazy delicious it is.  The Campbell’s cheddar sauce was perfection.  It is thick enough to make the dish come together perfectly and the sharp cheddar flavor is just the cheesy goodness my family loves.  My kids devoured the nutrient rich broccoli when it is coated in the amazingly tasty cheese sauce without a second thought.  That my friends is a win.

We served this on top of rice, but if you wanted to go lighter it would also be delicious on a bed of sautéed spinach. You can even use the leftovers chopped up and put with some romaine into a wrap. YUM!   It is a pretty versatile meal and perfect to be reinvented into some new dishes for even easier lunches or dinners to serve throughout the week.

    Bought the oven cheesy b err broccoli chicken pkg. On spur of the moment. Delighted to fix this recipe for supper tonight.

        do you just add the dry campbells product or make the sauce then add it?

        I made the sauce then added it and my chicken is not even close to being done. its been in there for 75 min and I even turned up the heat in the last 10 min. what did I do wrong.?

        Love trying new recipes but find it so frustrating when they don’t work out :(

        • says

          The product I used (shown in the photos) is not a dry mix. It is a premade sauce and I didn’t do anything except pour it out of the package and spread it over the chicken.

          Since the final dish is really deep and the broccoli is frozen it will take longer than cooking regular chicken breast, and I would say 45min-an hour is pretty normal. If your chicken is taking longer than that there are a few things you could try. 1. Get an oven thermometer to make sure it is getting as hot as you set it to. 2. Sometimes chicken breasts can be really, really thick. In this case it helps to butterfly your chicken breast so they are thinner and will cook faster. 3. Use a bigger pan so everything can spread out a bit more. If it is packed in tight it will take longer to cook.

          I hope these help and you enjoy the meal!

    Where did you buy the Campbell’s cheese sauce? I looked in my local Target and Walmart last night. Going to try Publix now. I have everything but that and planned to make it tonight.

      Hi Natalie- I hope you got it in time! I live on the west coast so it may be different but they carry them at both Albertsons and Kroger here. They have a store finder on their website too if it is helpful http://www.campbellsauces.com (Look at the bottom) If you can’t find it you can always try a thicker broccoli cheese soup! Hope you love the recipe!

    • Tatiana says

      Hi Natalie, did you end up finding the sauce? I found it in the soup aisle at Winn-Dixie, on the opposite side of the canned soup. There are displays with different types of sauces there.

    I have had this in the oven for an hour now and it is no where near cooked! :( It’s already after 7 and we’re all so hungry. It smells great but I think maybe I should have followed the directions on the sauce bag and baked it at 400 instead of 350. I turned up the temp and put it back in for 30 minutes. They aren’t super thick and I used a 2.25 qt pyrex dish. I hope it cooks soon. Such a bummer!! :(

  5. Pm says

    I have a very good recipe for this dish already but when I saw how easy this one was I thought how great! However, the Campbell’s sauce is so salty that it ruined the whole dish. And putting cheese overtop was too much and added to the saltiness. Unfortunately, I won’t make this again and will stick to my recipe. Sorry!

  6. Andrea says

    I made this tonight but made a couple changes. First I cut my chicken breast into strips and laid them in the bottom. I then cooked a sweet onion in butter put it on top of the uncooked chicken. Next I added fresh broccoli then added a can of cheddar soup and cream of chicken soup. I sprinkled the top with cheddar and Monterey cheese. Cooked for 40 minutes and spooned over white rice. It was to die for. Tomorrow we will be having the leftovers over penne pasta.

  7. K.P. says

    I made this dish this evening for dinner, couldn’t find the Campbell’s sauce so I took the advice from another post I saw about this dish. In place of the sauce I used a can of cream of chicken soup and mixed 1/2 can of water with it. I also added some vidalia onions on the chicken before the broccoli. My husbands exact words were ” this is freaking awesome!” This is one we will definitely fix again!

  8. Mindy says

    Will be making this, but only use organic products. So I will use Pacific cream of chicken soup will let you know how it turns out.

  9. Andy says

    Hi. I love this dish! My mum first cooked it up but with a twist. It’s so moreish and you’ll wish you had cooked more. :) before starting, steam the broccoli and then drain it thoroughly as broccoli holds lots of water. Once done, lay your chicken breasts in your cooking dish. use cream of mushroom soup (Campbell’s is best) but before you pour it, add some madras curry paste or korma for a slightly mild taste, to the soup. Pour it over the chicken and broccoli, let it settle and then cover with cheese. Voila! This is the next level for this already amazing dish! Hope you enjoy.
