Chicken Cheddar Broccoli Bake

4 servings

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons olive oil

2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1” cubes

1 large head broccoli, cut into bite-sized florets

1 teaspoon fine sea salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

8oz cream cheese, cut into cubes

1 cup heavy cream

1 ½ cups grated sharp white cheddar cheese (6oz)

1 cup crumbled Cheddar Whisps, divided

2 tablespoons chopped parsley

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375℉.
  2. In an ovenproof skillet such as cast iron, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken and toss to coat in oil. Cook chicken until lightly browned on all sides, 3-5 minutes. Add broccoli and cook 5 minutes or until tender. Add salt and pepper and take off heat.
  3. In a medium saucepan heat cream cheese and cream over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Bring mixture to a simmer, take off heat, add cheese, and stir until melted. Add ½ cup Whisps and gently stir.
  4. Pour cheese sauce over chicken and broccoli. Top with remaining ½ cup Whisps and bake until hot and bubbly, 15-20 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley before serving.
