cheesy chicken broccoli casserole
Weekly dinners can feel stressful. This one pan dish makes it easy to enjoy a healthy meal with your family in no time.

This tasty, quick-to-prepare comfort food is as easy as it is cheesy. The calcium and phosphates in the cheese help put minerals back in your teeth and rebuild enamel. And the fiber-rich broccoli is full of vitamin C to strengthen your gums by supporting collagen production. 

Coming up with weekly dinner ideas that are delicious and healthy can feel stressful. You already have enough on your plates (pun intended). That’s why this is the perfect one pan recipe for family dinner as the weather gets chilly and the nights get shorter. Tip: Try adding in other vegetables that your family loves, like mushrooms or bell peppers to amp up the nutritional value.

  • 2 pounds of boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
