Chicken and Broccoli in Mushroom Sauce

Nice casserole to make ahead of time and warm up for dinner.

  2. Steam broccoli spears until tender crisp. Plunge into ice water to stop cooking. Blot dry and arrange in baking pan.

You need to cook the chicken first or use leftover cooked chicken. Next time I make this I plan on using Costco rotisserie chicken. I would also make sure the broccoli is fully cooked. I changed the lemon peel to the zest of 1 lime....this gives the dish a Thai lemongrass flavor. Otherwise...this is a FABULOUS recipe and will be a staple for me.
