The key to this casserole is a clever substitute for traditional cream of mushroom soup.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tbsp bacon fat

  • 1.5 lb boneless skinless chicken thighs

  • 1 lb fresh broccoli florets, separated (or 20 oz. frozen broccoli florets)

  • Sauce
  • 2 Tbsp butter

  • 1/3 c. white onion

  • 8 oz. white button mushrooms

  • 1/2 c. white wine

  • 3/4 c. heavy cream

  • 3/4 c. chicken broth

  • 2 oz. cream cheese

  • salt & pepper to taste

  • 1/2 c. shredded cheddar

  • 1/3 c. mayo

  • 1 Tbsp lemon juice

  • Topping
  • 1/2 c. grated parmesan

  • 3/4 c. crushed pork rinds

Directions

  • In a food processor, pulse the onions and mushrooms until finely chopped. Set aside.
  • Brown chicken thighs in bacon fat until cooked throughly, set aside. Roughly chop when cool.
  • While chicken is browning, steam the broccoli in the microwave until cooked through and drain well. (You can also use a frozen steam-in-bag of broccoli.)
  • Add the butter to the remaining fat in the pan, and saute the onion and mushroom mixture over medium heat until cooked thoroughly, about 8-10 minutes.
  • Add the white wine, heavy cream, chicken broth and cream cheese to the pan and reduce over medium-low heat for 5-7 minutes. Remove from pan and allow to briefly cool.
  • Preheat oven to 350˚F. Spray a 9×13 casserole dish with cooking spray. Arrange broccoli in the dish, add the roughly chopped chicken on top.
  • In a medium bowl, add the cooled sauce mixture, shredded cheddar, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Mix well. Pour over chicken and broccoli. Smooth with spatula.
  • Cook at 350˚F for 25-30 minutes. Remove from oven and top with the shredded parmesan and pork rinds. Return to oven and brown the top for 5-8 minutes.

        Wes,
        What could I use in place of the white wine? My hubby and I do not drink.

          Hi, Deb! Just substitute it with more chicken broth and a little squeeze of lemon for the acidity. Enjoy!
