Chicken and Broccoli Casserole


From: Cooking Light

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)

Ingredients

  • 3 quarts water
  • 1 (12-ounce) package broccoli florets
  • 4 (6-ounce) skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
  • 1 (12-ounce) can evaporated fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour (about 1 ounce)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • Dash of nutmeg
  • 1 cup fat-free mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup fat-free sour cream
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry or dry red wine
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 (10.75-ounce) can condensed 30% reduced-sodium 98% fat-free cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided
  • Cooking spray

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400°.

Bring water to a boil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add broccoli, and cook 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Transfer broccoli to a large bowl with a slotted spoon. Add chicken to boiling water; reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until done. Transfer chicken to a cutting board; cool slightly. Cut chicken into bite-sized pieces, and add chicken to bowl with broccoli.

Combine evaporated milk, flour, salt, pepper, and nutmeg in a saucepan, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add mayonnaise, next 4 ingredients (through soup), and 1/2 cup cheese, stirring until well combined. Add mayonnaise mixture to broccoli mixture; stir gently until combined.

Spoon mixture into a 13 x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup cheese. Bake at 400° for 50 minutes or until mixture bubbles at the edges and cheese begins to brown. Remove from oven; let cool on a wire rack 5 minutes.


MY NOTES: This was a fairly time consuming recipe for me. I spent longer boiling the chicken until it was done and only baked it for 30 minutes. It was AMAZING!!!!

Curry 1

From: a combination of google results from the search "how to make curry powder"

2 T cumin
3 T ground turmeric
1 t cayenne
2 t garlic powder

I named this curry 1 because I plan on making MANY curries.

This one was used in my recipe for Curried Chicken Pot Pie, which, because of the fact that pie crust is my arch enemy, has become a curry over rice. I should just remove the instructions for the pie part altogether.
