Whenever I think of comfort food, I think delicious, but fattening. So I love it when there’s a comfort food that actually isn’t too terrible for you.
My mom used to make this all the time, and it remains a family favorite. You can use ingredients you probably already have in your pantry, and you don’t even have to make a mess in your kitchen.
Chicken, broccoli and cheese casserole
2 chicken breasts
10 oz. broccoli, cut into small pieces
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1 cup fat free mayonnaise
1 can low-sodium, fat free cream of mushroom soup
2 cups brown rice
Cook chicken on stove in salt and pepper. Dice.
Steam broccoli in microwave until tender.
Mix mayonnaise, cream of mushroom and cheese together in large bowl.
Combine all ingredients in 8×8 baking dish. Cook at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes or until cheese begins to bubble. Serve over rice (and add Texas Pete hot sauce if you dare).
It’s a little late tonight to cook dinner, but maybe this will give you inspiration for tomorrow.
