Chicken Broccoli Casserole

If you have ever been to Putnam County Indiana, I guarantee you have eaten at or seen the billboards and heard the buzz about Almost Home. They are very well known for their strawberry pizza, chicken and broccoli casserole, their dessert tray and many other yummy items.

Years ago my Mom bought their cookbook and we enjoyed making many of their recipes! Problem is, most of them contain gluten. So we did a little experimenting 😉

Grocery List:

2 bags frozen broccoli spears

2-3 boneless & skinless chicken breasts

1/3 cup butter or margarine

1/3 cup gluten free flour

1 ½ cups chicken broth

1 ½ cups non-dairy liquid creamer or milk

1/2 pound processed cheese (Velveeta anyone?)

2/3 cup mayonnaise

Potato Chips

 

Get Busy:

Pat-boil and drain

  •                 2 small packages of frozen broccoli spears

Arrange broccoli in a buttered 9×13 inch baking dish, covering the bottom of the dish.

Cook until just tender:

  •                 2-3 whole boneless, skinless chicken breasts

Tear chicken into bite-sized pieces and cover the broccoli with the torn chicken

Melt in saucepan:

  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine
  • 1/3 cup gluten free flour
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth
  • 1 ½ cups non-dairy liquid creamer or milk

Cook to a medium-thin white sauce

Turn heat off and add: ½ pound processed cheese (such as Velveeta)

Stir until melted Then add

  • 2/3 cup mayonnaise

Blend well and pour over chicken

Top with a layer of potato chips (just make sure they are gluten free, most frito lays non flavored, are as well as many store brands). Bake at 350 degrees for 25-35 minutes or until bubbly throughout.

ENJOY!!
