I recommend to blanch the broccoli before adding it on top of chicken (blanching means adding broccoli to boiling water just for a couple of minutes, removing it and draining it well).  Blanching the broccoli makes it moist and brighter in color.

The recipe is so easy – great for when you don’t have too much time on your hands to think about what to cook for dinner.

Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 chicken breasts
  • 2 cups broccoli florets, blanched, chopped
  • 6 bacon strips, cooked, chopped
  • 1/3 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  2. Grease the bottom of the casserole dish with olive oil. I used the the oval casserole dish measured 13 inches x 9 inches x 4 inches deep.
  3. Add chicken breasts to the casserole dish.
  4. Top with chopped and blanched broccoli florets.
  5. Top with chopped cooked bacon.
  6. Top with shredded Mozzarella cheese.
  7. Top with shredded Cheddar cheese.
  8. Bake, uncovered, for about 20-30 minutes, until the chicken is cooked through. The cooking time will depend on the thickness of your chicken breasts.
