Boil a pan of water and cook the broccoli florets for 5-6 minutes until they are al-dente (not soft), strain them, and put them in the casserole baking dish.


Now cut the chicken into cubes, drizzle the olive oil and butter in the skillet, coat the chicken with salt, black pepper, garlic, and cook evenly until browned.


Using a strainer, remove the cooked chicken from the pan and transfer it to the baking dish with the broccoli.


Leave the liquid in the pan, lower the heat, add the diced onion, sprinkle it with pepper and salt, and cook for 3 minutes, or until brown. Now add the garlic and continue cooking for about 2 more minutes.


Increase the heat to medium-high, add the mushrooms and cook until they have released most of their liquid, about 5 - 6 minutes.


Increase the heat to high and pour in the wine to reduce it by half for 3 minutes.


In a separate bowl, blend the flour, cream cheese, sour cream, and stock together.


Now pour the mixture over the mushrooms and simmer for another 5 minutes until it comes to a thicker consistency.


Once it's thick, pour it over the broccoli and chicken in the baking dish, and bake it for 30 minutes.


Once the cooked chicken casserole is bubbling, top with croutons for a further 8 minutes until they become golden and crunchy. Serve and enjoy this delicious casserole!

Cooking Tips

If you have a can of cream of chicken soup hanging around in your cupboards, you can use that instead of cream cheese and sour cream to make the sauce.


If you are in a hurry and on time-saving mode, buy some frozen broccoli and a rotisserie chicken on your shopping list to save you time in the kitchen.

Feel free to mix it up with mozzarella cheese or parmesan cheese if you are a cheese lover.
