  • NOTES:
    ~ Cooking cream is a specific cream that resists splitting when heated. If you must use regular cream, add 1-2 tsp of cornflour to it first before adding, to help prevent splitting. More info HERE
    ~ Chicken thigh fillets can be substituted for diced leg fillets or diced breast fillets. I do find breast can be a little dry though so definitely recommend thigh.
    ~ Vegeta is a dry gourmet vegetable stock powder available in all supermarkets. It's a lovely rich flavour and highly recommended for this recipe.
    ~ For the shredded cheese I used a Pizza Blend (Mozzarella, Cheddar and Parmesan)
Keyword broccoli, cheese sauce, chicken

    Made this for lunch today . Really delicious but a tad salty for our taste but that will be easily fixed next time by not putting as much vegeta Will definitely be making this again
