  • 2 cups broccoli florets , blanched, chopped
  • 6 strips bacon , cooked, chopped
  • cup Mozzarella cheese , shredded

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Add chicken breasts to the casserole dish. Note about chicken: use 4 thin chicken breasts, or use 2 large thick chicken breasts, sliced in half horizontally each to make 4 thin chicken breasts.

  • Top with chopped and blanched broccoli florets.
  • Top with chopped cooked bacon.
  • Top with shredded Mozzarella cheese.
  • Top with shredded Cheddar cheese.
  • 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.
