Cheesy Chicken & Vegetable Bake

Has this ever happened to you? You buy fresh produce for the recipes you’ve chosen to cook. Then, after cooking those meals, you’re left with a little of this and a little of that, but not enough extra veggies for each to be a side dish on its own.

Well, that was the story at my house this week. I had some veggies that were about to go to waste if they were not used quickly.

So, what is a girl to do with a small amount of broccoli, two carrots and potatoes that need to be cooked soon?

Throw it all together with some chicken, cheese and a few other ingredients, and call it dinner.

It worked!

Cheesy Chicken & Vegetable Bake

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  • 2 – 3 medium potatoes, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 carrots, peeled and sliced
  • 2 cups broccoli, chopped
  • 1/2 cup onion, chopped
  • 1 cup cream of chicken soup (I used this homemade version)
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Mix all ingredients, except cheese, in a large bowl.
  3. Pour mixture into a greased 2 qt casserole dish.
  4. Spread cheddar cheese evenly over the top.
  5. Bake covered with foil for 40 minutes.
  6. Uncover and bake another 30 minutes, or until potatoes are tender.
  7. Let stand for 10 minutes before serving.

Yield: 4 – 6 servings

Not only is this dish delicious, but it is very filling. Even my husband was surprised at how full he was after only eating one serving.

The leftovers are yummy too!

What do you do with extra veggies in the fridge?
