- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced into bite-sized pieces
- 1 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
- 1 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
- 1 cup creamy Greek yogurt (a healthier alternative to sour cream)
- 1 can (10.5 oz) organic cream of chicken soup
- 1/4 cup freshly chopped parsley (plus extra for garnish)
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
- Salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 cup steamed broccoli florets (optional for added nutrition)
- Prep Ahead: Start by preheating your oven to a moderate 375°F (190°C).
- Season Right: Toss the chicken pieces with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder, ensuring an even coat.
- Creamy Mix: Blend the Greek yogurt, cream of chicken soup, and half the Parmesan cheese in a bowl for a rich, creamy layer.
- Crunchy Topping: Combine the breadcrumbs with the melted butter in a separate bowl, ensuring each crumb is buttery for that golden crunch.
- Layer It Up: a. Place the seasoned chicken pieces uniformly in a 9×13 inch baking dish. b. Introduce some green by adding steamed broccoli florets over the chicken. c. Pour the creamy mixture ensuring an even spread over chicken and broccoli. d. Crown with the buttery breadcrumbs and sprinkle the remaining Parmesan cheese on top.
- Baking Time: Slide the casserole into your preheated oven and let it bake for 25-30 minutes. Look for a golden crust and bubbling sides as an indicator of done-ness.
- Final Touch: Garnish with some fresh parsley before serving. Presentation matters!
