Notes

Tips and Techniques

  • Use rotisserie chicken to make the recipe quicker and easier but you can cook our own. You will need about 1.25 to 1.50 pounds to get 3 cups.
  • Use frozen broccoli florets to also reduce the prep time, but you can use fresh broccoli without needing to change bake time.
  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator. Use within 3-4 days.
