Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Bake

Chicken, Broccoli, Cheese. Cassie Craves. Enough said?

1 pound broccoli florets
4 medium-sized chicken breasts
3 cups shredded cheddar cheese (divided)
1 tube buttery crackers (crushed)
1 stick melted butter
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour
1/3 cup chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 cups milk

Heat oven to 350. Steam broccoli for 2 minutes. Season chicken with Salt and Pepper. Place chicken in a greased baking dish and top with broccoli. In a saucepan melt two tbsp butter, add the flour and stir. Cook until it starts to bubble. Add chicken broth, salt, pepper and milk. Stir until the sauce has thickened. Turn down the heat and stir in 1 1/2 cups of cheese, stir until it is all melted. Pour over the chicken and broccoli. Top with remaining cheese. Crush up crackers and mix with the stick of melted butter. Sprinkle over the top of the cheese. Bake for 30 to 45 minutes or until chicken is done.
