For me, this is a good unexpected company dinner. I normally have everything for this already in my pantry and freezer, so it just takes me a few minutes to throw everything together and pop it in the oven. Served with a salad and brown and serve dinner rolls (for those not eating low carb) and we're ready to sit down to a nice dinner that everyone really enjoys!
- 1⁄2 cup butter, divided
- 1⁄4 cup flour (or a low carb thickener)
- 1 1⁄2 cups heavy cream
- 1⁄2 cup sherry wine (or chicken broth)
- 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup, undiluted
- 2 (10 ounce) packages frozen broccoli, thawed and lightly chopped
- 1 (10 ounce) package frozen cauliflower, thawed and chopped
- 4 cups cooked chicken, cubed (season with a little dried mustard, salt & pepper)
- 2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded (8 ounces)
- 1⁄2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
Directions See How It's Made
- 1. In a small saucepan, melt 1/4 cup butter. Add flour, stirring until blended. Stir in the cream and cooking sherry and Dijon mustard; cook and stir until thickened and bubbly. Cook and stir 2 more minutes. Blend in soup until smooth; remove from the heat and set aside.
- 2. Place broccoli in an ungreased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Cover with chopped cauliflower and then half of the sauce. Top with chicken. Stir shredded cheese into remaining sauce; pour over the chicken.
- 3. Melt the remaining butter and drizzle over the casserole. Sprinkle the parmesan evenly over the top. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 35-45 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 8-10 servings.
