Have you ever looked at what is in foods these days? Have you ever wondered why life has gotten so crazy that we all rely on processed "quick" foods and fast foods? Well I have had my eyes opened recently when we started to realize our oldest child could be ADD. I decided to clean up our diets and turn out lives around. I am a woman, married to a wonderful man who supports everything I do. We have 3 wonderful children who keep us on our toes and every day when I pick them up from school the first things out of their mouths is "mommy what's for dinner" so here it is...

What's for dinner 9/10/2010: Chicken broccoli cheese casserole

So last night's Feingold friendly dinner was yummy, filling and a family favorite.  Chicken, broccoli & cheese casserole with cute baby artichokes.

Chicken Broccoli Cheese Casserole (this can be made GF)
Serves 6-8

1lb cooked chicken, shredded
1 cup cooked brown rice
1lb fresh broccoli, chopped
2 tbsp of butter
2 tbsp flour (or brown rice flour)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp dried mustard
1 1/2 cups milk of choice
squeeze of lemon 
1 tbsp of mayonnaise
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup bread crumbs (or GF bread crumbs)
1/4 cup slivered almonds (only if FG ST2)

Melt butter in a medium saucepan.  Add the flour, salt, pepper and mustard, cook 2-3 minutes until bubbly and foamy.

 Slowly whisk in the milk, mayo and lemon and cook until thickened.

Stir in the shredded cheese.

Place the rice, chicken and broccoli in a casserole dish and pour the sauce over sauce over the top.

Spread the breadcrumbs and almonds (only if ST2) on top.

Bake uncovered for 30 minutes at 350

Now I usually add more rice than what is called for since i have a family of 5 and hubby likes leftovers (has been rare lately) and I served this with cauliflower for dinner.

The results...even my 5 year old ate it all up...this is an easy and inexpensive meal...ENJOY!
