Broccoli, chicken & cheddar bake

I mentioned earlier today I had some broccoli to go through. After looking online for a while I saw a bunch of casseroles that looked yummy but I didn’t feel like going to the store so I made up my own recipe!

About 2 cups of broccoli
1oz extra sharp cheddar cheese
3-4oz of chicken
1/2 cup of chicken broth
1 tbsp of flour
Some red onion
Some parsley
Some garlic
Splash of EVOO
Splash of white wine
Little bit of multi grain bread crumbs

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

To start bring to boil some salted water. Cook broccoli for 3ish minutes, strain and dump in an ice bath to stop cooking. Remove from the ice and set aside.
In an oven safe pan drizzle a bit of EVOO and cook the chicken, season with salt and pepper.

Once the chicken is done remove it from the pan, dice up and set it aside. Add in onions and cook until slightly brown.

Throw in the garlic and some white wine to deglaze the pan. Allow to reduce until almost gone. Turn off the stove.

Add in the chicken and broccoli to the pan.

In a small bowl mix chicken broth, parsley, half the cheese and the flour. Once it is mixed pour in the pan spreading it around evenly.

Mix the rest of the cheese with the bread crumbs and sprinkle on top.

Bake for 10-15 minutes (I did for 10).

Yum yum

And it didn’t last long…


This was super creamy and tasted so rich. I calculated the nutrition and this dish clocked in at:

322 calories, 12g fat (cheese), 24g carbs, 34g protein and 8g fiber

Super happy with this bad boy, AND I made my way through half of a head of broccoli!!
