Chicken Broccoli Hotdish
This is a sponsored post for Dorothy Lynch Home Style and Light & Lean Dressing & Condiment. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
As a small-town girl from the midwest who grew up attending a Lutheran country church… I have some major hotdish credibility.
What Is Hotdish?
You may call it casserole where you come from, but hotdish is perhaps more likely to contain canned soup. Hotdishes probably also contain canned or frozen vegetables, some variety of meat, and some crunchy topping.
They’re the perfect dish to make on a chilly fall or winter evening. Cold weather comfort food at its finest!
I grew up eating all sorts of different hotdish recipes made with love by my mom and grandma.
Hotdishes were the main attraction of church potlucks. From tater tot hotdish to hamburger noodle hotdish to funeral hotdish (yes, it’s a thing), I have tried them all!
As an adult, I appreciate hotdishes even more than I did back then. Why? They’re easy to make, they feed a crowd, and there are so many different variations.
This chicken broccoli hotdish is an old favorite with a new twist: The addition of Dorothy Lynch Dressing & Condiment.

A lot of Minnesota hotdish recipes call for canned soup (like cream of mushroom or cream of chicken). Canned soup is the easy option, but if you’re feeling ambitious you can make your own homemade soup like this homemade condensed cream of chicken soup. Either option will work.
