Creamy Chicken and Broccoli

Ok, so in our cooking group all of us have our favorite OAMC meals, and while mine switches up every now and then, it is usually Creamy Chicken and Broccoli.

Cheesy and delicious... This dish seriously has "comfort food" written alllllll over it! 

This recipe was a fabulous Pinterest find that I just HAD to try! And when it turned out to be delicious... I decided to give it a go as a freezer meal. And it worked! You seriously wouldn't even know it was frozen.

In fact, I made it for a friend and her family this past week and they LOVED it! So much so that she even asked for the recipe (that's the real test - whether or not they ask for the recipe...). YES! Little did they know that that particular meal had been in my freezer for just about a month. Hooray for freezer meals!

With no more ado, here's this wonderful little recipe -

Creamy Chicken and Broccoli

3-4 boneless/skinless chicken breasts
10 3/4 oz. can cream of chicken soup
10 3/4 oz. can cheddar cheese soup
14 oz. can chicken broth
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. Cajun seasoning (such as Tony Chachere's)
1/4 tsp. garlic salt
6 cups frozen broccoli (florets or cuts, it's up to you!)
1 cup sour cream
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese

For Today: 
1. place chicken breasts in the crockpot. Combine soups and broth and pour over chicken. Sprinkle with seasonings and cook on low 6 hours, or on high 3 hours.

2. With 30 minutes left in cooking time, use 2 forks to shred the chicken breasts. Stir in the broccoli and sour cream. Serve over steamed rice and sprinkle with cheese.

For the Freezer:
1. Place chicken breasts in gallon-size freezer bag. Pour in soups and broth. Sprinkle on seasonings. Measure 1 cup of shredded cheese into a quart-size freezer bag. Use duct tape, or some other means to hold the cheese and broccoli to the main bag. (see picture!)

2. Place frozen contents or main bag into crockpot. Cook on low 6-8 hours, high for 3-5 hours. With 30 minutes left, shred the chicken and add sour cream and broccoli. Serve over steamed rice and sprinkle with cheese.


  1. Hey! I found your blog through Jessica's. I am glad I did! Before Will was born I made a bunch of freezer meals. He is over a month now and I still haven't made an actual dinner. Just sides or something to go with the main dish. I love it!
    I am definitely going to try this. It looks delicious.

    1. YAY! I'm glad too! :) I'm glad it's working out so well for you... hopefully I'll be able to give you plenty of good recipes to try. I'd love to know what you've made successfully too!
      You will definitely not regret trying this one. We LOVE it!
