Ingredients

    1 lb. Chicken breast meat, cut into chunks
    1 medium head of broccoli, chopped
    1 cup vegetable broth
    1 cup low-fat shredded cheddar cheese
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1 large shallot, chopped
    1 T spelt flour
    1 oz. soy nuts, crushed

Directions

Spray an oven-safe skillet (like a cast iron dutch oven) with nonstick spray, and saute onions and shallots until lightly browned. Sprinkle with the spelt flour and stir to combine.

Add in broccoli, half the cheese, and uncooked chicken. Sprinkle remaining cheese and crushed soy nuts on top. Bake, covered, in a 350-degree oven for about 30 minutes. Remove the lid and cook an extra 10 minutes or so until the top is golden brown.

Makes six large servings.
