Chicken Broccoli Supreme Casserole

Ingredients
 
1 lb. fresh broccoli Break in pieces, and steam for 2 minutes.
1 lb or about 3 cups cooked chicken  – Break up in small pieces
3 cups Grated Cheddar Cheese divided
1 tube Ritz Crackers (or 1 cup Panko or bread crumbs)
1/4 cup melted butter
1 tablespoon poppy seeds
 
SAUCE:
2 cup milk
2 Tbs. butter
¼ cup. cornstarch
2 tsp “Better than Bouillon” chicken bouillon (or any chicken bouillon cube)
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
 
Instructions
  1. In greased 13×9 pan, layer the broccoli and chicken, then set aside.
  2. In saucepan over medium heat, combine the milk, butter, cornstarch, chicken bouillon and pepper. Stir well, and continue stirring until sauce has thickened.
  3. Turn heat down to low, and add 1- ½ cups grated cheddar cheese. Stir until melted.
  4. Pour over the chicken and broccoli.
  5. Top with 1- ½ cups grated cheddar cheese.
  6. Melt the butter, and add the poppy seeds, and stir well.
  7. Crush Ritz crackers in large zip-lock bag with a rolling pin. Don’t crush too small. Add crumbs to the melted butter. Sprinkle crumbs over the top of the grated cheese.
  8. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes, or until hot & bubbly. We like to eat this over rice.

    Ready to put into the oven to bake (I tried shredded cheese on top on one half and not on the other and liked both equally well)
