Chicken & Broccoli Casserole

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs. chicken breast, diced into bite-size cubes
  • 1 ½ lbs. broccoli florets (about 6 cups)
  • 6 tbsp. butter, divided
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2 cups half-n-half
  • 3 tbsp. Socks’ Love® Chicken Seasoning
  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 ½ cup finely sliced yellow onion
  • 1 lb. extra wide egg noodle
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup grated parmesan
  • 1 cup fried onions

Directions: 

Preheat oven to 350. In a large oven safe saucepan (I use my cast iron) melt 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Add chicken and sauté until cooked about half way or 160º internal. Remove chicken from pan and set aside. In the same pan melt 4 tablespoons of butter, whisk in the flour until smooth. Cook, whisking constantly, for a couple minutes or until light brown. Whisk in the half-n-half, Socks’ Love® Chicken Seasoning and black pepper. Bring to a low simmer and continue to whisk until thickened. Add the broccoli, yellow onions, reserved chicken, cheddar cheese, and pasta. Stir until well incorporated. Transfer saucepan to oven and bake for 30 minutes, until its hot and bubbly. Remove then sprinkle parmesan cheese and fried onions over the top. Return to the oven for about 5 minutes or until the cheese is melted. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.

Enjoy!
