One of the first dishes that my mother-in-law ever made us was this Broccoli Chicken Curry Casserole. I had never, ever heard of it and I will be honest was a little put off by the cooked broccoli and the fact that it was a casserole. But because it was my mother-in-law, I had to try it and like it…lol. Well at least try it, right?

With the delicious crispy bread crumbs and cheese, I knew I would at least like that. I took that first bite, expecting mushy broccoli and I got the opposite. The broccoli was cooked but not ever done and the creamy curry filling was a perfect balance with the chicken and crumb topping.

This casserole is my to-go-to dish to take to family and friends when they are in need of a meal. One because it freezes great and two it is so comforting, yet not your traditional casserole.

My son, Madden is by far our pickiest eater and he devours bowl full after bowl full.

  1. An absolute hit with the kids and us. Daughter said the dish looked like sagebrush, with the broccoli dotting a sandy colored landscape! So we’ll dub it ‘sagebrush casserole’ around here!

  2. I’ve made this a dozen times for my husband from his mom’s similar recipe. Your recipe was my best one ever, and I even made my own cream of chicken soup. I was out of the canned and found “cream of chicken substitute” -super easy and tasted much better than the canned. I steamed the broccoli-still firm when I put it in pan. Do you not have to cook it first? Mom-in-law uses frozen brocc., but I prefer fresh. I’m so glad you said to mix the chicken with the mayo & soup, then pour over broccoli. I was unclear about putting the chicken in first, then the broccoli…I finally got it right with your recipe, and we loved it. He even ate a bowlful the next morning for breakfast! I also put tabs of butter on top of the bread crumbs. Thank you!

  3. Suddenly had a craving for this- haven’t had it since I was a kid! Does the recipe call for granulated garlic or sugar?

  4. The meal is delicious, I added half a teaspoon of paprika, doubled the garlic, and added ground pepper. Your calorie calculation is very low though. I think you forgot the high calorie mayonnaise!

    1. Not sure if the counter was not working right when you checked, but it should be correct now! We did edit this a little but it is showing us the 1 cup of mayo has about 1500 calories. I’m glad you enjoyed it!

  5. 5 stars
    Very delicious, this recipe is very similar to how my Mom made it for our family only that instead of bread crumbs we’d buy plain bagels for the topping.

    We take 3 whole bagels, butterfly slice them then cut them into square cubes about the size of a coin… toss them into a large bowl of melted butter (maybe 1 to 2 tablespoon) and a pinch of salt and spread them over the top of the casserole.

  6. Must parboil the broccoli or cover for the first 15 minutes. The broccoli was tough and the sauce sat on top of the broccoli and did not penetrate. I used Campbells condensed. Should I add a can of water to the condensed soup?

    1. No, I have made this casserole hundreds of times – if you chop your broccoli you will be fine, you do not need to boil.

  7. Hi. Do I freeze it after assembling but before cooking? And what would the instructions be for cooking or reheating from frozen?
    Thanks!

    1. Hi Jen – i haven’t tried this. I would note that if you assemble and freeze, do not add the bread crumbs until right before cooking. I would remove from the freezer and set in the fridge overnight to defrost and then cook the next day according to directions. I hope this helps.

    1. I have never tried this, but if you do, I would reduce the baking time at 10 minutes and check it then. Pop back in the oven if you need.
