I've never made a casserole before because honestly I didn't think people still made casseroles. I put casseroles in the same category as fruitcakes and jello molds; something people make, and no one really likes, but someone always brings it to the party anyway. But that's just me...

For my first casserole, I think it came out pretty good, but I must say the directions are pretty fool-proof.
Cheesy & Easy Chicken and Broccoli Casserole (adapted from Eating Well Stovetop Chicken & Broccoli Casserole)
- 8 ounces egg noodles
- 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 3 chicken breasts, cut into 3/4-inch pieces
- 1/3 head Broccoli
- 1 1/2 cups 1% milk
- 1/2 cup low fat Miracle Whip
- 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
- 1 1/2 teaspoons mustard
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
- 1 1/2 cups shredded low fat Cheddar cheese
Step two: Whisk together flour, mayo, milk, mustard, and pepper. Pour mixture over ingredients in skillet.
Step three: Simmer in pan.
Step four: Sprinkle top of casserole with shredded cheddar and bake for 3 more minutes. How easy!
CJ and I were pretty skeptical of the directions, I've never thrown a bunch of raw ingredients in a pan like that before and just let it simmer. I guess that's just how casseroles roll.
