Food Friday

This week I made Broccoli and Cheese Chicken and served it with mashed potatoes. It was delicious and would be great for a fall night. The little one looked at my best friend over dinner and said, "I love broccoli". Well this was news to me but if this recipe will get him to eat it then I will make it.

Broccoli & Cheese Chicken Breasts

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into smaller pieces
Salt & pepper, to taste
2 T. butter or margarine
2 T. flour
1 1/4 c. milk
1 1/2 c. cheddar cheese, cubed or shredded
2 c. frozen broccoli
1/2 t. thyme
2 T. butter or margarine
1 c. breadcrumbs
1. Season chicken with salt and pepper. Place in small casserole dish (8×8 or 9×9).

2. In a small saucepan, melt 2 T. butter or margarine over medium heat. Stir in flour and cook for 2 minutes. Whisk in milk, bring to a boil and cook until thickened to gravy consistency. Remove from heat. Stir in cheese until melted. Add the broccoli. Season with salt, pepper and thyme. Pour over chicken.

3. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.

4. Melt 2 T. butter or margarine and combine with breadcrumbs. Sprinkle over chicken and return to the oven. Bake for 5-10 minutes, or until browned and chicken is fully cooked.

This recipe was totally stolen from Cooking During Stolen Moments. Her website is great and right now there are pull apart rolls on the main page which I am going to make.

This recipe is posted to Gayle's website.

That looks so yummy! I love broccoli cheese soup, so I'm sure Broccoli & Cheese Chicken would be a big hit in this household.

I've never heard of that site before, so I'm off to check it out... thanks!
