My mom starting making this for me when I was a little girl... to this day, it's still one of my favorites - combining broccoli and mushrooms :)
SnoWhite's Broccoli Hotdish - Mom
10-oz pkg. frozen broccoli (or fresh)
3 T butter
3 T flour
1 C chicken broth
1 (4oz) can mushroom pieces, with liquid (salt free)
2 C sliced/shredded cooked chicken, or turkey
Bread crumbs, or stove top stuffing
Cook broccoli. Melt butter, and mix with flour in a small saucepan. Cook briefly. Add chicken broth and stir until mix is thick and smooth (pudding-like consistency). Add mushrooms (and liquid) to the cream, and remove from heat. (you can use more mushrooms ... 8oz, is great!).
Place broccoli in the bottom of an 8 inch casserole dish. Cover with chicken. Pour mushroom sauce over the broccoli/chicken layers. Top with bread crumbs or dry stove top stuffing. Bake uncovered at 375 for 15-25 minutes or untl hotdish is bubbly and brown.
Enjoy... and think of being 5 all over again.
