  • 1 4 ounce can mushroom pieces, drained
  • 2 tablespoon flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon tumeric
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese


  • Spray a 2 quart casserole dish with cooking spray. Place the frozen broccoli in the bottom of the dish then drain and add mushrooms on top of broccoli. Brown the chicken pieces and onion in 2 tablespoons of the butter in a skillet on top of the stove, remove from skillet and layer over the mushrooms.
  • Add the other 2 tablespoons butter to your skillet where you browned the chicken along with the flour and make a roux like you are making gravy. Combine chicken broth, milk, black pepper, salt, nutmeg, and tumeric and pour into skillet.
