    1. 1

    2. 2
      Line with foil and lightly spray a small baking sheet with nonstick spray.
    3. 3
      Melt butter over medium high heat in a saute pan.
    4. 4
      Add chicken and saute until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Stir in shallots and saute until softened, 2 minutes.
    6. 6
      Sprinkle mixture with flour, cook 1 minute.
    7. 7
      Combine apple juice and broth; slowly add to chicken in saute pan, stirring constantly to avoid clumping.
    8. 8
      Stir in cream, Parmesan, mustard, and thyme; simmer after each addition until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.
    9. 9
      Add BLANCHED broccoli; season with salt and cayenne pepper.
    10. 10
      Reduce heat to low.
    11. 11
      Hollow out loaves by cutting off tops and tearing out insides. (Remove as much bread as possible.).
    12. 12
      Compress any remaining bread inside loaves to make room for filling-you need space.
    13. 13
      Toast loaves directly on oven rack, about 5 minutes; remove to prepared baking sheet.
    14. 14
      Arrange ham slices in bottom of each loaf.
    15. 15
      Using a slotted spoon, divide chicken mixture evenly between rolls, RESERVING sauce in pan for last step.
    16. 16
      Top the chicken in each loaf with a slice of Swiss and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon Parmesan.
    17. 17
      Bake "casseroles" until cheese melts, 7-10 minutes. (For extra browning, broil casseroles on high, 3-5 minutes.).
    18. 18
      Serve each casserole with reserved cream sauce.

      I made bread this morning and while I was at it I made a couple of bread "bowl" loaves for this recipe. It's absolutely delicious and kind of decadent. I followed right by the recipe and it came out beautifully. Normally I wouldn't have used heavy cream but I've been making ice cream and there was some in the fridge. One of the things was the mustard sauce, it added to the texture and really rounded out the flavors well. This makes two but they sure filling, DH and I could have shared one and been happy in this hot summer. I should mention that the sweetening from the apple juice not only flavors but seems to lighten this dish. All in all it's terrific! :D

      I made this by the recipe. It came out fine. It is more like 4 than 2 servings. I wasn't crazy about the dish, but I am not all that fond of thyme.
