Chicken and Broccoli Casserole
Pure comfort food! This casserole will feel like home. Serve with a green salad on the side.

1 1/2 lb boneless chicken breasts
1 tsp seasoning salt
8 oz cream cheese
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup heavy cream
1 tsp mustard powder
1 lb broccoli
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese (divided)

Coat chicken pieces with seasoning salt. Bake at 350º for 30 minutes. While chicken is baking, steam the broccoli until just tender crisp. Drain well.

In a medium sauce pan, stir together the chicken broth and cream. Add chunks of cream cheese, whisking until blended. Stir in mustard and set aside.

When the chicken done, chop it into bite sized chunks. Combine the chicken, cheese sauce, broccoli, and a half cup of the shredded cheddar. Pour into casserole dish(es). Top with remaining cheese. Bake at 350º for 20 minutes. (To make a Multiply Meal, freeze 4-5 portions either before or after baking.

I like to gently stir this casserole before serving, to break up the cheese a bit. Again, I like to bake this in individual casseroles to stock the freezer. Couple might want to bake in three small casseroles. Families who want to eat it all at once will do fine with an 8 inch square dish. So delish. Having a big week with summer camp this week and I am tired. Next week will be more time to blog. Until then…
