Chicken n’ Broccoli Bake
¾ cup corn flake or panko bread crumbs
2-3 tablespoons melted butter
¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon Parsley stir-in paste (see below)*
1 ½ pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons prepared dijon mustard
Salt and pepper to taste
2 cups broccoli florets, fresh or frozen
¼ cup cooked crumbled bacon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix together crumbs, melted butter, Parmesan cheese and Parsley stir-in paste; set aside.
Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and lightly brown in olive oil.
Whisk together sour cream, mustard, salt and pepper. Stir in cooked chicken, broccoli and cooked bacon; place in 1 ½ quart baking dish. Cover and bake chicken 15-20 minutes; remove cover, sprinkle with prepared crumbs and continue to bake 20-25 minutes longer or until crumbs are beginning to brown and chicken is cooked through (internal temperature of chicken should be 160 degrees).
