I havn't stumbled across a good, new recipe in a while and I'm getting bored with the same old same old I have on hand and since there seems to be a bunch of health minded or at least health conscious women on here, I thought I'd ask:
Who has a tasty recipe that is a family favorite they're willing to share with me? Here's mine:
steam or boil 20 oz of broccoli (I usually do more because we like broccoli!) You can leave it in whole florets or dice it up, personal preference.
bake or saute 1-2 chicken breasts, dice up in even sized pieces. Should be at least 1 cup of chicken, although I usually have more lol. (I use turkey, gives it a richer flavor in my opinion.)
combine the chicken and broccoli in a casserole dish.
In a seperate bowl combine 1/2 cup mayo (I use lowfat), 1 can cream of chicken, 1 tsp lemon juice and 1 cup of American or cheddar cheese. Pour this mixture over the chicken and broccoli.
Top with enough croutons, bread crumbs or what have you to cover the top. Bake in a 350 degree oven covered for 30-45 mins. Uncover and let cook an additional 10-15 minutes, or until the breadcrumbs are browned and toasted.
This is my comfort food, I could eat myself sick off of this hotdish! What's your favorite recipe?
*edited because I had 1 cup of mayo...supposed to be 1/2 cup! Sorry!
