        chicken and broccoli noodle casserole 

Ingredients

  • Cook noodles in water until al dente (mildly undercooked). Drain and transfer to a large bowl.
  • Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add in the broccoli and garlic. Season with a bit of salt and pepper, and sauté until broccoli is slightly tender, about 2-3 minutes. Transfer to bowl with noodles.
  • Preheat oven to 400 and mist a baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Melt butter in a large sauce pan over medium high heat. Stir in shallot, and cook until tender, about 1-2 minutes. Turn heat down to medium low, and whisk in flour. Cook for another 1-2 minutes. Now turn heat up to medium and slowly whisk in the chicken broth until well combined. Then stir in the milk, and bring to a boil. Let simmer, whisking occasionally, until thickened – about 7-8 minutes. Remove pan from heat and stir in the cheese. Mix thoroughly, allowing the cheese to melt.
  • Add chicken and sauce to the large bowl with the noodles and broccoli. Pour entire mixture into prepared casserole dish. In a small bowl, mix together the almond meal and bacon bits, then sprinkle over the top of the casserole.
  • Place in oven and bake for about 20 minutes.
