Chicken Broccoli Casserole

Chicken Broccoli Casserole

This casserole is very filling and will satisfy a hearty appetite for many hours. I used to love casseroles as a kid such as potatoes au gratin, mac and cheese, and tuna noodle casserole but this one is just as good without gluten and dairy. I hope you like it and will share it with your family. Leave a comment and let me know how it turns out.
