Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Bake

29 02 2012

Since I started on Pinterest I have been trying really hard not to just pin aimlessly. I try to pin with the intent to make or do what I pin. This is a recipe that I pinned a few weeks back. It was posted over at Get Off your Butt and Bake. I had been waiting to get some broccoli in our basket so that I could make it and this was the week.

It was a great all in one meal. The other thing I really loved about this recipe was that instead of using a condensed soup to make it you basically made your own. Everyone in my family loved it and there is enough to have leftovers another day.

Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Bake

~ 1 lb. fresh broccoli cut into pieces and steamed for 2 minutes

~ 3 cups cooked chicken breasts, cut into small pieces

~ 3 cups grated cheddar cheese

~ 2 cups plain Panko bread crumbs

~ 1 stick melted butter plus 1/3 cup melted butter

~ 1 Tbsp. poppy seeds

~ 1/4 cup cornstarch, dissolved in 1/2 cup cold water

~ 1/4 tsp. salt

~ 1/4 tsp. pepper

~ 2 cups milk

~ 1/3 cup chicken broth

1. Grease a 13 x 9 inch pan and layer broccoli and chicken, then set aside.

2. In a sauce pan over medium heat, combine 1/3 cup melted butter, cornstarch dissolved in water, chicken broth, salt, pepper, and milk. Stir well, and continue stirring until sauce has thickened. Turn heat down to low, and add 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese. Stir until melted. Pour over the chicken and broccoli. Top with remaining 1 1/2 cups grated cheddar cheese.

3. Melt 1 stick of butter, add the poppy seeds and stir well. Mix with Panko bread crumbs. Sprinkle crumbs over the top of the grated cheese.

4. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.

I made the recipe work – and it was good, but there are some problems with your recipe (sorry) – you don’t have an amount of chicken broth listed.

Thanks for pointing that out, I totally skipped the chicken broth and forgot to add it to the recipe. Fixed it on the recipe! Thanks for the help.
