Can I Prep This Recipe in Advance?
Once baked, I recommend eating this cheesy chicken and broccoli casserole immediately.
However, you’d probably be fine to assemble the casserole ahead of time and refrigerate it until you’re ready to bake and serve it. I haven’t tried this method myself, so I can’t say for sure if it’d work.
Can I Use Fresh Broccoli Florets?
Most likely, yes. I prefer using frozen because they’ve already been cut and washed for me.
What to Serve with Broccoli and Cheese Casserole
I think this chicken broccoli stuffing casserole is a meal in itself, but if you’d like to bulk it up you can serve it with one of the following sides:
- Garlic Herb Mashed Potatoes

Tips for the Best Broccoli Casserole
- Make sure to thaw and drain the frozen broccoli florets before adding them to the casserole.
- You’ll need to prepare the stuffing as it instructs on the box. Do NOT add the stuffing to the casserole like a dry ingredient.
- You should add the broccoli cheese soup straight to the casserole mixture. You don’t need to dilute it first like it instructs on the can.
