It's a slow cookin' kind of day with this easy chicken casserole recipe. Just prep ingredients, toss 'em in the slow cooker and relax. Mama's Cheesy Chicken 'n' Broccoli Casserole packs a lots of home-cooked flavor without much of a fuss.

What You'll Need:
  • 8 ounces wide egg noodles, prepared according to package directions, drained
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese, divided
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 (10-ounce) package frozen broccoli florets
  • 3 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 (10-3/4-ounce) can cream of chicken soup, undiluted
  • 1 (8-ounce) container sour cream
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup crushed round buttery crackers (about 20)
What To Do:
  1. In a large bowl, combine noodles, 2 cups cheese, and remaining ingredients except crushed crackers, stirring well. Spoon into a  5-quart slow cooker that's been coated with cooking spray.
     
  2. Cover and cook on LOW setting 4-1/2 hours.
     
  3. Combine remaining 1 cup cheese and the cracker crumbs. Uncover slow cooker, tilting lid so condensation runs back into casserole. Sprinkle crumb mixture over casserole. Cover and cook on LOW setting 30 more minutes.
     
Notes

Carefully remove lid at end of cooking so condensation doesn't run into casserole and make the crumbs soggy. Kick it up! You can also add a Southwestern flair to this casserole by substituting condensed Cheddar cheese soup and Cheddar cheese with habanero peppers for the cream of chicken soup and sharp Cheddar cheese.

I don't need this recipe since I cooked up this dish without it using my own imagination. You can substitute rice for noodles and have chicken and rice. I find one concern. If you have leftovers when you put it in the refrigerator. The broccoli stinks to high heaven. So instead of broccoli, I use peas and corn.

i'm new to the crockpot world, but what does the sour cream do for this recipe? and is there another alternative?

Can The Noodles Be Substituted With Rice? If so, how much rice will be needed? Would it change the baking time, and temp?

I make this in the oven. I cook the broccoli in the microwave until just thawed, 4 or 5 minutes. I assemble the whole thing, including the topping and bake at 375 about a half hour. Everything is already "done" so it only needs to get hot. I add a big dollop of mayonnaise, too. I like it better with cooked rice than with noodles. I use 4 cups cooked rice which is two boiling bags if you're lazy like me.

I would suggest putting this in an 11 x 15 baking dish and cooking for about an hour. Then add the topping and cook until bubbly. This is not exact, just a place to start.

How can I convert this to oven-baked?

Relax....

I wish people would not post comments that have nothing to do with the recipe, or that it sounds good. How can I make this recipe into a baked casserole?

I haven't had theirs but I make my own. I don't measure. Just depends how much you want to make. Mine inclueds: Hamburger Canned Diced tomatoes with juice Tomatoe Sauce Frozen Mixed Vegetables Cabbage (half or full head depending on your taste) Water Salt & Pepper

I had hamburger cabbage soup at Cracker Barrel. It's a new item. Anyone have the recipe for it? Thank you!
