About This Turkey Broccoli Casserole Recipe

This has been one of my favourite dishes since I was a kid. My mom got the recipe from her mom, my Grammie, both of whom served it to me for years.

I’ve shared the dish on my Instagram stories a few times in the past and often get questions about the recipe. Finally, I begged my mom to share it with me so I could pass it on to you.

From my family, to yours! Enjoy!

Ingredients For Turkey Broccoli Casserole

To make this recipe, you’ll need:

  • Cooked turkey or chicken breast, cubed
  • Broccoli florets
  • Butter
  • Cream of chicken soup
  • Lemon juice
  • Curry powder
  • Bread crumbs
  • Grated cheddar cheese

How to Make Turkey Broccoli Casserole

Step 1: Cook turkey & broccoli

If not already cooked, bake your turkey or chicken breasts in the oven, then cut into cubes.

Steam broccoli by placing broccoli florets in a microwave-safe bowl and adding 3 tablespoons of water. Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave for 3-4 minutes until slightly tender but still firm.

Then lay the chicken then broccoli in the bottom of a casserole dish.

Step 2: Make the sauce

In a medium bowl, mix together cream of chicken soup, butter, lemon juice, curry powder, and salt. Spread over top of chicken and broccoli in the casserole dish.

Step 3: Add breadcrumb + cheese topping

Mix 1 teaspoon melted butter with the bread crumbs and spinkle on top. Add grated cheese on top of bread crumbs.

Step: 4 Bake!

Bake at 350F for 35-45 minutes. Serve with rice and/or a side salad to round out the meal. Enjoy!

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.

  1. I’m wondering how this casserole freezes and if you have experience. Would you recommend making, baking and then freezing or just preparing the dish and freezing it uncooked
