Oriental chicken and broccoli cheese casserole-thingy

Look, don't EVER put me in charge of naming stuff in a cookbook, okay? Okay.

Having said, that, here's a yummy recipe. If you haven't discovered it yet, I cook like a grandma, so expect no measurements!

Here we go.


Oriental Chicken:
1. Mix Sesame oil, oriental curry, and ginger together. Brush on chicken while it bakes, basting occasionally. TIP: for more intense flavors, marinate chicken with the mixture in a ziploc for a while (30 minutes to a day). I use a ziploc because then you can use less marinade.

2. Put chicken in oven to cook and start broccoli dish.

Broccoli Cheese Casserole-Thingy:
1. You need fresh broccoli, cream sauce mix, and cheese.

2. Make cream sauce. (See previous recipe for instructions if you don't have your own. The sauce instructions are at the end of the post.)
3. While sauce cooks, chop broccoli. I used I head from the produce section: stems and pieces. Put in a small baking dish.

4. Add cheese over top of broccoli.
5. Finally, pour sauce over broccoli and cheese. Toss in oven with chicken to cook. They should finish up about the same time.

6. Top with more cheese once casserole is cooked, if you wish. (I did.) This small dish served average-sized side portions for 2 adults and 2 children.

My family might not go for the chicken, but definitely the broccoli casserole. Thanks.

I love the "cooks like a grandma line." In my opinion everything is better with cheese sauce. The chicken looks good, too.

Well Mikki, you know that this is something I'm not going to try. It looks like it would be great. Unfortunately, like my sister (your mother), I'm allergic to chicken. But it sure looks good. Finally, you are too young to be a grandma. However, it's okay to cook like one. Especially if it's like your maternal grandma. (Second best in the world! Aunt Syl is numero uno.)

Many of my cooking creations are called, "thingys" as well! ;)
