Quinoa, Broccoli & Chicken Casserole


This is one of my favorite recipes!
It’s so yummy and I think its even better on the second day, if you have leftovers 😉

Quinoa, Broccoli & Chicken Casserole
Ingredients Needed:
-2 bags of fresh or frozen broccoli
-2 cups of cooked quinoa
-half a cup of greek yogurt (plain)
-2 cups of chicken broth (reduced sodium)
-One package of chicken breasts (approx 4 chicken breasts)
-2 cloves of garlic
-1 cup of milk
-1 cup of reduced fat shredded cheese
-2 tb of oat flour (can use any type of flour you have)
-sprinkle of bread crumbs (for top)
**alternative, you can use Cream of Chicken soup instead of making your own sauce with the broth.

Cooking Steps
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 8×13 pan with nonstick cooking spray then set aside.
2.Sautee your chicken, until chicken is cooked thoroughly.
3.Set chicken aside. Then bring heat down to medium and add your garlic.
4.Add your flour and whisk (add 1 tb of chicken broth at a time).
5.Add remaining broth & half of the cheese bring down to a simmer.
This creates the “sauce” that you will coat everything in.
6.Steam your broccoli and set aside.
7.In a large bowl combine your chicken, broccoli, and “sauce” PLUS add the greek yogurt.
8.Mix everything together, Top with the remaining cheese and breadcrumbs.
9.Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.

**You may have to adjust the cooking time depending on thickness of your sauce.
And you can use cream of chicken soup instead of creating your own sauce using the broth.
Enjoy!

      The webpage says 2 cups of chicken broth, not 2 cups of chicken. So, is it 2 cups of each, broth and chicken? I just want to make sure I do this correctly. Thanks for understanding!
