Cheesy chicken broccoli & potato bake

Cheesy chicken broccoli & potato bake
I’ve made this twice now for my family. It came out AMAZING both times. My picky husband even had seconds (& thirds!). Great recipe!!


  • 1.5 lb bag mini potatoes
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • Salt & pepper
  • Dash of paprika
  • 2 Tbsp light butter
  • 2 garlic cloves diced
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1.5 cups milk *I used 1%
  • Pinch of cayenne pepper
  • 1 cup reduced fat shredded cheese * I used a 3 cheese blend
  • 3 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 16 oz cooked cubed chicken
  • 3 cups fresh broccoli *frozen should work as well


  • Preheat oven to 450F, cut the mini potatoes in half, toss with oil, garlic powder, onion powder, salt & pepper, paprika and cayenne pepper.
  • Spread potatoes on a baking sheet, I lined with some parchment paper and bake for 30 minutes.
  • If you have not cooked the chicken yet you can do so at the same time, although not at that temperture in the oven, you can cook on the stove in a frying pan or in the air fryer *My chicken was pre-cooked in the oven before the potatoes
  • Once the potatoes are done lower oven temp to 350F, you can now make the cheese sauce, in a large pan on the stove melt the butter over medium heat, add in the diced garlic, once the butter is melted add in the flour, it will form a paste.. slowly whisk in the milk until it has all blended with the paste.
  • Cook over medium-low heat, it will start to thicken..add in 1 cup of shredded cheese and 2 Tbsp parmesan cheese *leave 1 Tbsp aside for topping. Stir sauce for 3-5 minutes untill all cheese has melted. Turn stovetop off and then add in the chicken and broccoli, gently stir then add in the potatoes and stir again.
  • Transfer to a 9×13 sprayed casserole dish. Sprinkle remaining 1 Tbsp parmesan cheese on top and bake in the oven for 30 minutes, check the potatoes are cooked through, some ovens vary and may require a few extra minutes for the potatoes.
  • Makes 6 servings, 9-9.5oz per serving *approx 1.5 cups
  • Store any leftovers in the fridge and this dish will freeze well.
