Leftover chicken will languish in the fridge no longer thanks to this easy, cheesy casserole with a crunchy potato chip topping. The recipe that follows combines cooked chicken with flavorful cream of chicken soup and nutritious broccoli florets for a casserole that couldn't be simpler to throw together.
This recipe gets a ton of texture by using raw broccoli in the filling, which keeps its toothsomeness after baking; the crushed potato chips as a topping bring even more texture of a completely different variety. Consider changing things up with your favorite flavors of potato chips ⁠— barbecue, sour cream and onion, or ketchup-flavored chips can all be fantastic additions to this meal.
