“An elegant two person meal. Posting for safekeeping -from Cuisine at Home. Layers of chicken, ham, broccoli, and Swiss cheese stuffed into a freshly toasted bread bowl topped with a creamy mustard sauce. The sour dough roll IS the casserole dish. Serve with a simple salad. Not for the diet watchers.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Line with foil and lightly spray a small baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  3. Melt butter over medium high heat in a saute pan.
  4. Add chicken and saute until beginning to brown, about 5 minutes.
  5. Stir in shallots and saute until softened, 2 minutes.
  6. Sprinkle mixture with flour, cook 1 minute.
  7. Combine apple juice and broth; slowly add to chicken in saute pan, stirring constantly to avoid clumping.
  8. Stir in cream, Parmesan, mustard, and thyme; simmer after each addition until sauce is thickened, about 5 minutes.
  9. Add BLANCHED broccoli; season with salt and cayenne pepper.
  10. Reduce heat to low.
  11. Hollow out loaves by cutting off tops and tearing out insides. (Remove as much bread as possible.).
  12. Compress any remaining bread inside loaves to make room for filling-you need space.
  13. Toast loaves directly on oven rack, about 5 minutes; remove to prepared baking sheet.
  14. Arrange ham slices in bottom of each loaf.
  15. Using a slotted spoon, divide chicken mixture evenly between rolls, RESERVING sauce in pan for last step.
  16. Top the chicken in each loaf with a slice of Swiss and sprinkle with 1 teaspoon Parmesan.
  17. Bake "casseroles" until cheese melts, 7-10 minutes. (For extra browning, broil casseroles on high, 3-5 minutes.).
  18. Serve each casserole with reserved cream sauce.
