INGREDIENTS

  • 4-5 cups cut up cooked chicken
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 medium onion, diced
  • 8 ounces softened cream cheese
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups shredded colby jack or cheddar cheese
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fried onions (optional)

METHOD

  1. Preheat oven to 350F/180C.
  2. Spray a 9 X 13 pan with non-stick spray.
  3. Place chicken and broccoli in a large mixing bowl. You can use fresh raw broccoli if you want it to be crunchy, or you can steam it or microwave 2-3 minutes to soften. I used frozen broccoli so I cooked it 3 minutes in the microwave first.
  4. Sauté onion in olive oil with salt and pepper. When onion is soft and slightly brown (about 3-5 minutes), add cream cheese to sauté pan. When cream cheese is melted, whisk in chicken broth until the mixture is smooth.
  5. Allow to simmer for about a minute, or until sauce thickens slightly.
  6. Add cream cheese and onion mixture to chicken and broccoli.
  7. Mix well.
  8. Add 3/4 cup of the shredded cheese and mix again.
  9. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  10. Spread evenly in baking pan.
  11. Add remaining 3/4 cup cheese and optional fried onions on top.
  12. Bake for 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and casserole is bubbling.
