Dinner and Dessert

Chicken and Broccoli Bake
4 chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
1 large head of fresh broccoli, florets and a little stem chopped off
16 oz. cream cheese
2 cups milk
1 cup parmesan cheese
1 tsp. salt
1 clove minced garlic
*Combine the last 5 ingredients in a blender until smooth. Pour into a saucepan and cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until thick. Spray a 9X13 with cooking spray. Layer broccoli pieces, 1/2 the sauce, chicken pieces, rest of the sauce, and sprinkle with parmesan. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
*Helpful hint: We will eat this with baked potatoes next time to balance out the rich sauce. If you like alfredo sauce, you'll like this dish. Easy and yummy!
