Chicken Broccoli Casserole

This is the first time I have made this recipe and have altered it from the original.  I continually do that but I know what we like and it is more fun to do it that way.  The end result is interesting.   Just remember don’t stress over this just keep plugging along and discover something new that you have created.

Chop your broccoli into pieces.  Place the broccoli into a pot of water along with the juice of 1/2 lemon, bring to a boil and let it cook for about 3-4 minutes.  Add salt & pepper, after 3 minutes remove from pot.  Place into a bowl and set aside. Fresh veggies are so good at this time of the year.

Next place your chicken pieces into the same water and cook for 15-20 minutes.

Let cool in the water.  This will keep the chicken moist.

After it has cooled, place the chicken into the bowl with broccoli.  I did these steps the day before covered the bowl and placed it into the fridge so it was ready to use when I needed it.

Next I decided to add these ingredients.  Kale and onions.

Into a pan add 3-5 tablespoons of olive oil.

Fry until the kale turns soft.

Place your broccoli into an oven proof pan in one layer.  Place the onions, kale and chicken on top of the broccoli with some cheese.
