Equipment

  • 8x8 Casserole Dish

Ingredients
 

  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 10 ounces fresh broccoli
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (seperate into 1/2 cup)
  • 4 ounces full fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 400°F
  • Steam broccoli first until tender (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat then set aside.
  • Grate you own shredded cheese from the block, avoid using packaged if you can, see notes.
  • Cut chicken into chunks and season with 1/2 tsp of salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Then sear chicken just enough to brown it then remove. Don't try to cook it all the way through it will cook in the oven.
  • In a small pot add heavy cream and cream cheese. Toss in 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese and melt down. Then slowly pour in chicken broth. Add seasoning of black pepper and taste test for salt level.
  • In a casserole dish add steamed broccoli and chicken. Mix broccoli, chicken and cheese sauce together and spread out evenly in dish. Top with other 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • Place in oven for 25 minutes in order to melt cheddar topping.
  • With a 8x8 dish you can seperate casserole into 9 squares and that will be one serving.

Notes

Helpful Recipe Tips

  • Grate your own cheese, in order for the cheese in the sauce to melt smoothly it shouldn't have that non-caking agent used in packaged shredded cheese. This will help you have a smooth sauce that isn't trying to separate.
  • Steam broccoli ahead of time, this will allow your cheese sauce to stay thick while in the oven.
  • Salt to taste, I didn't feel the need to add any salt in this recipe outside of seasoning the chicken. But, be sure to taste the cream sauce before pouring it in the casserole dish for flavor.
