Broccoli Bacon Cheese & Chicken Bake – an Instant Family Favourite

Broccoli, Bacon, Cheese & Chicken Bake

This recipe looked fantastic when I found it, but was even better than expected! An instant family favourite, the boys loved it, yes, even though it was mainly broccoli. That’s always a measure of a successful dinner… the broccoli and chicken baking together result in such tasty juices at the bottom of the dish. If you were to add rice to the mix (not necessary at all) you would have a lovely broth to go with it.

Blanch the broccoli before baking to enhance the colour and flavour.
