Chicken Divine

Ingredients

3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
to taste fresh (chopped) or dried rosemary
to taste salt
to taste freshly ground black pepper
1 pound fresh or frozen broccoli
3/4 cup uncoooked rice
2 cups cheese sauce (see inset)
 

Instructions

Place chicken in a baking dish, and sprinkle chicken with rosemary, salt, and pepper. In a 2 quart casserole dish, mix rice and 1Ĺ cups boiling water. Bake chicken uncovered and rice covered at 350? for 30 minutes (cook chicken longer if not done). Once chicken has cooled, cut into bite-size pieces. Chop broccoli into bite-size pieces, and cook in boiling water for 6 minutes (the recipe says to add 1 slice of onion, but we never do this).

Butter or use cooking spray on a 2 quart casserole dish. Layer chicken, then broccoli, then rice in casserole dish. Pour cheese sauce over entire dish. Add more Parmesan cheese on top if desired (we donít usually do this). Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly.

Cheese Sauce

Ingredients

1/2 stick (1/4 cup) butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp pepper
1 cup grated, sharp Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup freshly grated asiago cheese (or parmesan)

Instructions

Melt butter, add flour, and stir until smooth. Cook 2 minutes. Add milk all at once, stirring constantly until thickened. Add cheese and seasonings. Stir until cheeses are melted.

This is a great cheese sauce for pasta as well--we use it all the time!

 

Something possessed me to put some of my favorite recipes on my web site back in 1995. I add a new one now and then when I discover something interesting. My recipes are generally combinations of favorite recipes I've found in cookbooks. They were developed through experimentation and lots of tasting!
