Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Bake

My husband and I visited my aunt a few years ago. She always has the best recipes to feed her big family of six people. On this particular day she made a chicken and broccoli bake. My husband absolutely loved this dish and asked me numerous times to make it for him. One weeknight I had chicken breasts and an uncooked broccoli head in the fridge and I decided to try and recreate this dish. You will see that once again, I used my favourite ingredient of all times - plain yogurt!


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 400g chicken breasts cut into strips or cubes

  • One broccoli head broken into smaller pieces

  • 200g full fat plain yogurt

  • 4 tablespoons mayonnaise

  • ½ cup grated cheese

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Chicken spice (optional)


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C.

  2. Season the chicken with chicken spice or spice of choice. Heat the olive oil in a pan, add and cook the seasoned chicken.

  3. Steam the broccoli for 5-8 minutes on the stove or in the microwave.

  4. Add the steamed broccoli and cooked chicken into an ovenproof dish.

  5. In a bowl, mix the yogurt, mayonnaise, salt and pepper.

  6. Add the yogurt mixture to the chicken and broccoli and add the grated cheese on top.

  7. Bake the dish for 15-20 minutes.

Tip: This dish can be served with rice, pasta or a side salad.
