“This is a little healthier version. I'm not sure who gave me the recipe, but it is quick and easy, and my nephew who is 5 will eat it.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 diced cooked chicken breasts
  • 3 tablespoons flour (I use whole wheat)
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium fat-free chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon mustard (wet)
  • 1 tablespoon dried onion flakes
  • 1 cup shredded reduced-fat cheese (I like mozzarella the best, my husband cheddar)
  • 2 (12 ounce) bags broccoli, steamed lightly
  • 1 cup crushed corn flakes
  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese


  1. Stir the flour, milk, chicken broth, mustard, and onion flakes in a glass baking dish.
  2. Microwave on HIGH for 4-6 minutes, stirring well every 2 minutes until the cream sauce is thick and bubbly.
  3. While cooking the cream sauce, steam the broccoli for about 4 minutes.
  4. Mix the cheese into the cream sauce.
  5. Put the broccoli and diced chicken in a 9 x 13 pan. Pour the cheese sauce over the top.
  6. Mix the cornflakes and parmesan together, and pour over the top.
