How to Make Turkey Broccoli Casserole

Step 1: Cook turkey & broccoli

Notes About This Recipe:

  • This recipe works great with either turkey breast or chicken breast. Use whichever you prefer!
  • Turkey broccoli casserole is a fantastic way to use up any leftover turkey that you have from Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner in your freezer. Thank me later!
  • If you use no salt added cream of chicken soup, I recommend adding about 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the recipe or to taste. If you can’t find no salt added soup, you can probably leave out the additional salt!
  • I recommend serving this dish with a side of rice and/or a side salad for a satisfying, well rounded meal.
