Food: Chicken and Broccoli Bake

Yum yum yum. This really is one of my favourite comforting recipes. Even friends who swear they don't like broccoli will happily munch away on this dish.

Serves 4

1 medium sized broccoli head, broken into florets
350g cooked chicken - left over roast chicken works perfectly here - just chop roughly. Otherwise use fresh chicken breast, slice into small pieces and fry off in oil until it's cooked (around 7 minutes)
284ml single cream
3 eggs
100ml milk
2 onions, chopped
100g cheddar cheese, grated
salt and pepper
1 tbsp olive oil

Preheat the over to 190 degrees celsius

1. Begin by boiling the broccoli for 5 minutes. Then chop into half inch pieces. This can be done very roughly.
2. Mix together in a bowl the eggs, milk and cream. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Fry the onions in the oil and a little salt for five minutes. They will be softened but not discoloured.
3. Use a shallow ovenproof dish, around 1.7L capacity.
4. Alternate layers of chicken and broccoli in the dish. Each layer should be about 1 inch deep.
5. Top with the fried onions.
6. Pour over the sauce and finally sprinkle on the grated cheese.
7. Cook in the oven for 30 minutes, or until the dish is golden.
