French Chicken Broccoli Supreme

Are you sick of making casseroles with cream of *insert whatever has been creamed* soup? This broccoli chicken bake has a rich creamy sauce that you make yourself in just a few quick minutes. The taste is fantastic, similar to what you’d get with a condensed soup…but so much better. It has a crunchy buttery topping and is full of flavor. I have no idea what about this is “French”, but it is most certainly supreme. Supremely amazing and delicious. Enjoy!

Start by layering some cooked chicken with some slightly steamed broccoli in a casserole dish.

Then we’re going to make our sauce. So easy. Melt some butter.

Add cornstarch mixed into a little water. This will thicken the sauce.

Add milk, some broth and a little seasoning, stirring until combined and thick.

A little cheese sprinkle action. Melt it down into the sauce.

Boom. You’ve just made a “cream of” soup from scratch. Oh yeah you. Pour over your broccoli/chicken.

Another sprinkle of cheddar.

Bash up some bread crumbs (or you could use the cracker of your choice).

Top your casserole with the breadcrumbs and drizzle with a little melted butter.

Bake and enjoy.

  1. I do try to avoid using those cream soups. This looks like great comfort food.

  2. This looks yummy! I can see adding some pre-cooked rice in with the chicken and broccoli too.
