Chicken Divan, Lightened Up (Skinny Taste)

Number of Servings: 6


    4 cups broccoli (fresh)
    16 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts (or 18 oz cooked)
    salt and fresh ground pepper
    1 tbsp butter (I use smart balance light)
    2 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    2 cloves garlic, crushed
    2 tbsp shallots, minced (onions would work too)
    4 tbsp flour
    1 cup fat free chicken broth
    1 cup fat free milk
    2 oz dry sherry (white wine would work)
    6 oz shredded reduced-fat swiss
    1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
    1/4 cup breadcrumbs
    cooking spray


Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add the broccoli and blanch 3 minutes. Rinse with cold water to stop the cooking. Drain well and set aside.

Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray.

Season the chicken with salt and pepper. Saute chicken on medium-low heat on both sides until browned, and just about cooked through. Remove from heat and transfer chicken to a cutting board. When cooled, slice chicken into bite sized pieces.

Heat a medium skillet on medium heat. Add the butter and oil until melted and then add garlic and shallots. Sprinkle the flour and whisk until smooth. Stir in broth, milk and sherry and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in half of the swiss cheese. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
