- 2 cups cooked and shredded chicken breast
- 4 cups fresh broccoli florets
- 1 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/2 cup low-fat shredded mozzarella cheese
- 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 cup non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup whole wheat or whole grain flour (or a gluten-free alternative)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Cooking spray
- Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Steam the broccoli until it’s tender but still firm, about 3-4 minutes. You can do this on the stovetop or in the microwave.
- In a medium saucepan, spray cooking spray and heat it over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for a minute or until fragrant.
- Stir in the flour and cook for 1-2 minutes, or until the mixture turns a light brown color.
- Slowly whisk in the chicken broth until the mixture is smooth and thickened.
- Remove the saucepan from the heat, and then whisk in the Greek yogurt, cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. Stir until everything is well combined and the cheese is melted.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine the cooked and shredded chicken, steamed broccoli, and the cheese sauce. Mix everything together until well coated.
- Transfer the mixture to a greased 9×13-inch casserole dish.
- Bake in the preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes or until the casserole is bubbly and the top is lightly browned.
- Let it cool for a few minutes before serving.
