Carrots/Celery/Onion – Want to add more veggies? Feel free to add a little more diced carrots and/or celery, or add any sautéed vegetables that sound good.
Olive Oil – The oil in this recipe is for cooking, so technically any cooking oil (like avocado oil) works great. However, olive oil adds tons of flavor!
Boxed Stuffing Mix – This stuffing mix is a classic and works great in this recipe. It’s the ultimate comfort food!
Chicken Broth – Water works as well, but the broth in this recipe really adds flavor and brings it to life.
Cooked Chicken – Any type of cooked chicken works great! Cooked shredded chicken breast, cubed chicken, or shredded rotisserie chicken are all perfect.
Broccoli Florets – Since the broccoli florets are steamed before starting the recipe, feel free to use fresh broccoli or frozen broccoli. The kind that steams in the bag always works great for me when I’m in a rush!
Cream of Chicken Soup – The cream of chicken soup can also be substituted for cream of broccoli soup or cream of mushroom soup.
Salt/Pepper – This Chicken & Broccoli Stuffing Casserole is pretty flavorful as it is, but feel free to add more seasoning to taste. Some ideas include garlic powder, dried parsley, dried or fresh thyme, or dried basil!
Cheddar Cheese – It’s not a cozy casserole without a hefty handful of shredded cheese on top!
How to Make Chicken Broccoli Stuffing Casserole
This recipe is truly one of the easiest ever. Here’s how to make Chicken Broccoli Stuffing Casserole:
- Sauté the carrots, celery, and oil in a large pan.
- Add in the stuffing mix and chicken broth and cook.
- Meanwhile, stir the chicken, broccoli, condensed soup, salt/pepper, and cheese together in a large bowl.
- Add to a casserole dish or baking dish and top with the stuffing mixture.

Heating Up Leftovers
In my experience, stuffing is always best served fresh. However, if you have leftovers of this casserole, you can definitely store them in an airtight container and reheat them to enjoy another tasty meal!
To reheat: Place the casserole in the oven for about 10-15 minutes. You can also heat it up in the microwave, but you run the risk of the stuffing getting a little soggy. So I recommend heating it up in the oven instead!
