{Tasty Tuesday} Chicken and Broccoli casserole

Tasty Tuesday is back again!

Mike and I have been trying to eat better on the weekend. We always end up going out to eat or looking for convenience foods because our schedules are all over the place and we are lazy sometimes! We both decided we should eat better especially on Sundays since Saturday nights usually mean going out with friends.

This Sunday I hopped on to Pinterest for inspiration when Mike was coaching a lacrosse tournament so that we could have a nice dinner in! All of my searching led me here and had me drooling!
