I got this out of Cook's Country Feb/March 2008 edition. Makes an easy dinner, it's full of good-for-you broccoli, and tastes like you spent hours. My husband wasn't as impressed as I was, but then again, he's not a huge fan of broccoli like I am. The magazine recommends serving it over rice or egg noodles--we used the noodles and it worked great.

Directions

  1. Adjust oven rack to upper-middle position and heat broiler on high.
  2. Meanwhile, pat chicken dry with paper towels and season with salt and pepper. Melt one tablespoon butter in large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken until golden brown, about three minutes per side. Transfer to plate.
  3. Add remaining butter and onion to empty skillet and cook until onion is beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Stir in flour and cook until golden, about one minute. Whisk in broth, cream and sherry and simmer until thickened, about 3 minutes. Return chicken to skillet, reduce heat to low, and simmer, covered, until chicken is cooked through, about 15 minutes. Transfer chicken to broiler-safe (non glass/ceramic) baking dish.
  4. While the chicken is cooking, microwave broccoli on high power, covered, in a large bowl until bright green and slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Add broccoli and 1 cup cheese to skillet, stirring to combine. Season with salt and pepper and pour broccoli mixture over chicken. Sprinkle remaining cheese over top and broil until browned and bubbly, 2 to 4 minutes. Serve hot.
