Savory Chicken and Broccoli

Oh Yum. This was a great dish. I really wasn't sure about it while I was making it but it ended up being warm and gooey and absolutely wonderful, I adapted it a bit and made it to fit our taste. The recipe is from Confabulation in the Kitchen.

1/2 cup butter
3 tbsp all-purpose flour
1 can chicken broth
Black pepper and salt to taste
1 baguette
2 tbsp olive oil
1 package frozen broccoli (steamed until bright green)
2 large chicken breasts (cooked and sliced)
1/2 cup grated cheddar

Heat oven to 375. Cut the baguette into crouton pieces. Heat olive oil over medium high heat and saute the bread, cook bread until toasted. Season with salt and pepper. In a pan melt the butter, add the flour and cook for a minute. Season with pepper. Add the chicken broth and turn off the heat. Stir until thick. Layer the baguette, broccoli and chicken. Pour sauce over. Top with cheddar cheese. Bake for 25 minutes. Serve hot.
