How to Make It
Preheat oven to 450°. Lightly grease an 11- x 7-inch baking dish.
Melt butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat; whisk in flour. Gradually add milk, and cook, whisking
constantly, until thickened. Remove from heat.
Gradually stir about one-fourth of hot mixture into egg yolks; add yolk mixture to remaining hot mixture, stirring constantly. Stir in sherry and next 3 ingredients. Fold in whipped cream.
Microwave broccoli according to package directions; drain. Arrange in prepared baking dish. Cover with chopped chicken. Pour sauce over chicken, and sprinkle with additional cheese, if desired.
Bake at 450° for 10 to 12 minutes or until bubbly and browned. Makes 6 to 8 servings.
Use steamed fresh or frozen cooked broccoli florets if you’d like in place of the broccoli spears, and substitute Cheddar for the Parmesan.
