Creamy Broccoli and Chicken


Baked casseroles are ideal for family style meals, and here's another one to add to your regular rotation. This recipe makes good use of frozen broccoli that is briefly blanched to heat through (avoid overcooking) and boneless chicken breast meat, with fresh mushrooms (if desired) and a simple sauce of mustard whisked with cream to bind the ingredients in the baking dish. Sliced almonds make a crunchy topping. Round out the meal with cooked rice.
