Chicken Broccoli GF Casserole

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know it’s been forever since I posted here. I’m posting a lot on the private blog, so this poor little thing has been suffering.  My conclusion is that I’m just not meant to keep two blogs going at the same time. There’s not enough writing talent (or drive) in me for it. So, I guess I should just have one public blog, but like a whining little kid, I just don’t wanna 😉

Anyways, I’m a Pinterest fiend, so pretty much anything I pin onto my craft, sewing, or food boards has been made by my own hands at some point. I just don’t always take the time to document what I’ve sewn or made for dinner.  (My user name is kristinhanson and if you want an invite, just shoot me an email.)

Speaking of dinner – tonight’s trial recipe turned out to be a keeper, even with the gf substitutions I used. So much so that I took pictures (please bear with me, I’m not a food photographer) and wrote down the changes I made, just to share it with y’all. Because if the almost 4 yr old ate a whole bowl of it, broccoli and all, it must be good.

Chicken Broccoli Casserole

(adapted from Get Off You Butt and BAKE‘s Chicken Broccoli Supreme)

Ingredients:

1/2 lb frozen chopped broccoli

1 chicken breast, cooked and diced (seasoned with Mansmith’s Original Grill Seasoning, my go-to spice mix)

1 c grated cheddar cheese, divided

2 handfuls of Mary’s Gone Cracker’s Original, crushed

2 T butter

Sauce:

2 T  butter

1 T sweet rice flour

1 c chicken broth (I use Better than Buillion chicken flavor)

dash salt

1/2 c 1% milk

1/2 c grated cheddar cheese

  1. Grease an 8×8 pan, preheat oven to 350.
  2. Layer chicken and the broccoli in greased pan.
  3. Make sauce: over med heat, make a rue (melt butter, whisk in flour, cook until golden brown), then add in chicken stock and milk. Stir until thickened, then add in cheese and stir until melted.
  4. Pour sauce over chicken and broccoli.
  5. Sprinkle remaining 1/2 c of cheese on top.
  6. Melt the remaining 2 T of butter, then mix into the crushed crackers. Sprinkle on top of cheese.
  7. Bake in oven for 30 mins or until bubbly.

Makes about 3 servings

Enjoy!
