Broccoli Cheddar Chicken & Mashed Potatoes

My husband loves this recipe. Sometimes I make it with whole pieces of chicken (as in the picture below) and sometimes I chop the chicken into pieces (like above). The original recipe calls for the chicken to be served on top of mashed potatoes, but I’ve included a couple of alternatives here that work just as well. Either way you choose to make it, it’s a delicious meal! And it’s not too fattening either, which is always a plus. Enjoy!

Recipe for Broccoli Cheddar Chicken & Mashed Potatoes

1 tablespoon vegetable oil
4 skinless, boneless chicken breasts
1 (10.75 ounce) can Condensed Broccoli Cheese Soup or Condensed 98% Fat Free Broccoli Cheese Soup
1/3 cup milk
2 cups fresh broccoli flowerets or frozen broccoli flowerets
4 cups hot mashed potatoes

Heat oil in skillet. Add chicken and cook until browned.
Add soup, milk and broccoli. Heat to a boil. Cover and cook over low heat 5 minutes or until done. Serve over potatoes.

Tips & Suggestions:

-The mashed potatoes really add a lot, but if you want, you can leave them out and just have the Broccoli Cheddar Chicken by itself.

-Or you can make the Broccoli Cheddar Chicken and serve it on top of baked potatoes or a bed of rice or pasta. Yum!
