Key Ingredients Needed

ingredients needed to make Chicken Potato Broccoli Casserole on a counter in small bowls.

Chicken Breasts. I prefer chicken breasts for this recipe. They are easy to cube and they cook up great. Use a high quality chicken breasts that’s boneless and skinless.

Small Potatoes. these are also called new potatoes. They are found with the regular potatoes in the produce aisle. Yukon will work best.

Seasonings. Paprika, salt, pepper, dried thyme, oregano onion powder.

All other ingredients and measurements can be found in the recipe card below. 

Recipe Variations

Here are a few ingredients that can be substituted and result in an equally delicious meal.

Chicken Breasts. Chicken thighs can also work, the cooking time may vary slightly but you will need to keep an eye on the chicken throughout the process.

Mayo. You can substitute the mayo for all sour cream. The mayo adds a great tang to the dish however it will still be great without it.

Bell Pepper. Use any color of pepper you prefer! Zucchini will work well, it will result in a little more moisture if you use it.

Broccoli. This is a main component to the dish! Skip the broccoli if needed or substitute cauliflower.

All other ingredients and measurements can be found in the recipe card below. 

Steps To Make This Recipe

Steps to make the recipe in a clear mixing bowl with a wooden spatula and a casserole dish.

Step One. Preheat oven to 375º. Gather the ingredients. Cut chicken into small .5 inch -1 inch cubes. Be sure they are all the same size to ensure even cooking. Add the chicken cubes to a large bowl. Add olive oil and seasonings and mix well (photo 1).

Step Two. In the same bowl as the seasoned chicken, add the chopped bell peppers, broccoli, potatoes, sour cream, mayo and mix really well to ensure everything is coated in the mayo/sour cream (photo 3).

Step Three. Add the chicken mix to a 9×5 or 8×4 casserole dish. *please note if you use different sizes of dishes it will effect the cooking time, you will need to check the chicken to see if it’s at temp throughout the process.

Step Four. Loosely cover the casserole with tin foil. Place the chicken in the oven and bake for about 40-50 minutes. Pull the casserole out and check the chicken temp. If the chicken is cooked fully, sprinkle the cheese evenly across the casserole, pop it back into the oven, uncovered and bake for another 5-6 minutes to melt the cheese.

Step Five. Let the casserole set for about 5 minutes and serve while hot! If you have juices at the bottom of the casserole, spoon the liquid over the casserole before serving (so good!)

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can freeze these for up to 2 months.
