What The Eff Should I Make For Dinner?

There are two things that I dread each and every day as a busy mommy of two:

1) Making lunches.
2) Trying to decide what the eff to make for dinner.

For you chef extraordinaires, there’s an awesome site with a similar title to my blog post that gives you some great dinner ideas (you can check it out here: What The F*&# Should I Make For Dinner). But if you’re anything like me, you won’t have the time, ingredients, or energy to make things like “Herbes de Provence Roasted Chicken with Lemon and Garlic Fennel-Stewed Lentils” every night. Sounds delish, but my kids would gag and dry heave if I even said that dinner suggestion to them.

If you’re looking for a quick, simple meal using basic ingredients that you’ll probably already have in your cupboard, try this one on for size! I can’t get enough of this dinner, and my kids love it too!

Chicken Broccoli Bake
2-3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 heads of broccoli
2 cups of grated mild cheddar cheese
1 can of cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup of mayonnaise
1/4 cup 2% milk
2 tbsp curry powder

Serves: 4.

Cooking time (including prep): Approx 20 minutes.


1) Preheat oven to 410 F.

2) In a pot or rice cooker, cook 2 cups of Basmati rice.

3) Chop up the broccoli into bite-sized pieces.

4) Cut up chicken breasts into small pieces.

5) Cook the chicken in a frying pan with a little butter until light brown on both sides.
6) Add the broccoli to the chicken in the frying pan, and cover it with a lid to steam until the broccoli is tender and bright green (approx 2-3 minutes).
7) In a mixing bowl, combine cream of chicken soup, mayonnaise, curry powder, and milk. Mix with a hand mixer or whisk until creamy.
8) Pour chicken and broccoli into a small casserole dish, and pour the creamy sauce evenly on top.
9) Sprinkle grated cheese evenly on top, place in the oven.
10) Bake until cheese is melted and light brown.
11) Serve on rice and enjoy!
Thumbs up from some very picky food critics!
There you go, easy peasy!
Try it out and let me know what you think 🙂


  1. Looks doable and edible! Noted!

  2. Looks yummy. I wonder if my kiddos would eat it. One likes broccoli but the other does not! They both like rice though. Will try it out and see what happens. (I have picky eaters)

    • The creamy sauce and cheese hides the broccoli taste! My kids are very picky eaters, and this is one of the only things they’ll eat!

  3. We make this all the time. We serve ours over egg noodles and my picky eater LOVES it.

  4. I so love the picture of your kids EATING it. This is a guarantee of a tasty dish, right?
