  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Coat a shallow 8-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Place a steamer insert into a saucepan and fill with water to just below the bottom of the steamer. Bring water to a boil. Add broccoli, cover, and steam until tender, about 3 minutes. Drain.

  • Combine chicken, cream of broccoli soup, Cheddar cheese, mayonnaise, milk, stevia powder, pepper, and nutmeg in a large bowl. Stir in quinoa and broccoli. Spoon mixture into the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until top is bubbly and edges are golden, 35 to 40 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Omit the chicken if you want to serve this as a side dish.

This recipe is super yummy! I used a gluten-free soup mix instead of canned soup. I chopped and sauteed boneless chicken instead of using rotisserie chicken. For the quinoa and steamed broccoli I used my rice cooker set on the rice setting. I used powdered nutmeg instead of fresh. I've made it twice now and I can hardly stop eating it. It's that good.

Really good way to make a quinoa casserole! I like full flavor so I added 1 teaspoon curry & 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder. Yum! Read More

It was decent but not sure why it needs stevia. I think if I make it again, I will add garlic and lemon pepper and some chopped onion and leave out the stevia. Read More

Made this for the first time last night and was expecting bigger flavor. Instead it tasted like broccoli, rotisserie chicken and quinoa individually...nothing really blended to form complex flavors. It was fairly easy to make and was ok, but probably won't make it again. I even added a few extra sprinkles of both cheeses because you just can't skimp on cheese if you want real comfort food. All to no avail. I think it probably would have helped to use raw chicken instead of rotisserie so the chicken could have absorbed some of the flavors and the chicken juices would have added more flavor to the quinoa and broccoli. Wish it would have been better. Read More

Surprisingly delicious. Wasn t sure about this recipe with the low amount of reviews but yum. I didn t use nutmeg (not a fan) or the Steva powder. Added garlic salt to taste and used boneless skinless chicken breast made the rest as written. Next time will use 1 cup quinoa. Will definitely be making this on a regular basis. Read More
