DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  • Line with foil and lightly spray a small baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  • Melt butter over medium high heat in a saute pan.
  • Add chicken and saute until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.
  • Stir in shallots and saute until softened, 2 minutes.
  • Sprinkle mixture with flour, cook 1 minute.
  • Combine apple juice and broth; slowly add to chicken in saute pan, stirring constantly to avoid clumping.
  • Stir in cream, Parmesan, mustard, and thyme; simmer after each addition until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.
  • Add BLANCHED broccoli; season with salt and cayenne pepper.
  • Reduce heat to low.
  • Hollow out loaves by cutting off tops and tearing out insides. (Remove as much bread as possible.).
  • Compress any remaining bread inside loaves to make room for filling-you need space.
  • Toast loaves directly on oven rack, about 5 minutes; remove to prepared baking sheet.
  • Arrange ham slices in bottom of each loaf.
  • Using a slotted spoon, divide chicken mixture evenly between rolls, RESERVING sauce in pan for last step.
  • Top the chicken in each loaf with a slice of Swiss and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon Parmesan.
  • Bake "casseroles" until cheese melts, 7-10 minutes. (For extra browning, broil casseroles on high, 3-5 minutes.).
  • Serve each casserole with reserved cream sauce.
