Four Cheese Chicken Casserole


Another yummy casserole. A take off of the Ultra Chicken Casserole in the e-book. As the name suggests, this dish uses four glorious cheeses--cream cheese, Jack cheese, Parmesan cheese and even a small portion of Velveeta. (it was a great price at the grocery store a couple weeks back.) With the help of pre-baked Chicken Cubes and frozen broccoli, this goes together easily.

Four Cheese Chicken Casserole

1 pound frozen broccoli spears
1 to 1 1/2 pound chicken cubes
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup cream
1/4 cup water
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
2 ounces Velveeta or processed American cheese
1/4 cup prepared bacon bits

Lightly steam broccoli spears. Spray a large casserole dish with nonstick spray. Add broccoli to the dish. Top with thawed Chicken Cubes. In a microwave safe bowl, combine cream cheese, cream, water and Velveeta. Cook on full power until mixture can be stirred smooth. Add Parmesan cheese, garlic and onion powders and salt. Pour the cream mixture over the vegetables and chicken. Sprinkle the shredded Jack cheese and bacon bits over the top. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 35-40 minutes. Let cool ten minutes before serving.



Number two son is on his way home from college for fall break. Can't wait to hug his neck! I plan to offer him some good home cooking this weekend too. Just about anything I make would beat the cafeteria food!
