Ingredients

  • 2 cups shredded chicken breast (3 small chicken breasts)
  • 2 tablespoon of butter
  • 1 tbsp pack ranch seasoning mix
  • OR homemade ranch mix (make your own instead)
  • 4 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cup fresh broccoli (or a 10.8oz steam bag)
  • 2/3 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup crumbled bacon
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

For the Topping

  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1/2 cup crumbled bacon

Instructions

  • Prepare your chicken first by either cooking it in a slow cooker on high for 3 hrs or low for 6 hours with a little chicken broth and salt/pepper. Remove from slow cooker and shred. (If using a rotisserie chicken, shred that.)

  • Add shredded chicken and steamed broccoli to ranch mixture and stir to combine.
  • Sprinkle 2 cups cheese and 1/2 cup crumbled bacon on top.
  • Cook in the oven for 20-25 minutes or until the casserole is bubbly and the cheese is melted then move to the top rack.

Notes

How To Make Ahead of Time
To make this ahead of time, assemble in a casserole dish (or skillet) as stated in directions above. Then, before you bake, cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate. When ready, bake the casserole at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes. (Must bake within 1-2 days.)
How To Freeze Your Casserole
Prepare the casserole as stated in the directions below. Before baking, transfer everything to a freezer-safe dish and cover with plastic wrap and foil. Freeze for up to 3 months. When ready to eat, thaw overnight in the fridge and bake the next day. Baking time may be a little longer since the casserole may be colder or slightly frozen.
