Have I ever told you that I love EASY recipes??? Well, in case you haven't heard me say it a thousand times.... I DO! I am all about easy, healthy and frugal. Sometimes it is tough to get all of those into one recipe. Sometimes you get lucky!
I came across this recipe recently, on the back of a "Jiffy" Baking Mix box, funny enough. I saw it, and had to whip something up in a JIFFY (haha). I saw this recipe and I had all of the ingredients, so I thought we would try it.
And it was a hit! After boy#1 got over his "trying new foods" fear, then he even decides he liked it. So, it is now a permanent on our recipe rotation....
Chicken & Broccoli Casserole (with adaptations by ME!)
1 C. "Jiffy" Baking mix, other baking mix, or even pancake mix will work well!
1 large can or 2 small cans (about 4-5 oz) Chicken
1 C. milk
1 1/2 C. Shredded Cheddar Cheese
1 pkg. (about 10-12 oz) frozen broccoli or other frozen veggie (we have used corn with success!)
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Spray a casserole dish with non-stick spray.
Place chicken, veggies & cheese in dish.
In a separate bowl, blend baking mix, milk, eggs, salt & pepper. Blend with whisk, until combined! Pour over chicken mixture in casserole dish.
Bake for 35-45 minutes (until knife inserted in the middle comes out clean). Let cool a few minutes then serve!
Like I said, this is a very easy, cheap and pretty healthy recipe. The total cost of this dinner is probably not over $3. Which is great, and depending on the food in your area, and if you shop coupons and sales, you will PROBABLY be able to get this cheaper!
