Chicken Broccoli Casserole

There are those days where you just want comfort food. That food that warms you up and loves you but you are not in the mood for soup or stew. This is our go to food....casserole!!!! I came up with this recipe after one of the holidays where we had turkey and we had tons of leftovers. Now it is one that we have often. I hope you enjoy!!! 

Chicken Broccoli Casserole 

2.5 lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs (you can use bone in just bake a little longer)
3 cans cream soup (I use a combo of low fat cream of mushroom and cream of chicken but you can use any of them)
3/4 cup light mayo 
2 boxes cornbread stuffing made as directed in microwave
1.5 cups fresh broccoli florets steamed 
1 tube buttery round crackers crushed
2 tbs butter melted
4 tsp curry powder divided
1 tsp nutmeg
2 tsp creole seasoning (or salt and pepper to taste)
salt and pepper to taste

preheat oven to 300 
Place chicken in roasting dish. 
Dust the chicken with 2 tsp of curry powder, salt and pepper and let sit while oven warms up. Bake for 1.5 hrs. 
Remove from oven and cool. 
If you used bone in then remove from the bone. 
Once cooled cut into bite sized pieces.
Preheat oven to 350.
In a medium sized mixing bowl add the soup, mayo, 2 tsp curry powder, nutmeg and creole seasoning mix well. 
In a large baking dish spray with cooking spray add the cooked stuffing as the bottom layer. 
Layer the steamed broccoli on top of the stuffing.
Add the chicken.
Pour the soup mixture on top of the chicken.
Top with the cracker crumbs and drizzle the butter on top.
Bake uncovered for 45 minutes.
Let sit for 10 minutes then enjoy!!!

Thanks Y'all!!!
