Chicken Broccoli Bake

10 Feb

Today’s recipe comes from Chef Steve Meyers, who developed it for the Residential Dining Services at the University of Michigan. You can find it and other recipes for U of M food here.

I usually pick out my recipes at the last minute on Wednesday. Well, this Wednesday, I woke up and did a quick Facebook check before work, and saw that my good friend Walter posted the recipe to the University of Michigan’s residence hall’s infamous chicken broccoli bake on someone’s wall. What a serendipitous find! Not only is that dish clearly the greatest food in all of resident hall history, it follows the theme of Ann Arbor-related food from last week’s Hippie Hash. Perfect.

Quick note about the recipe – it calls for a pound of broccoli. Now, I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a food scale sitting around in my kitchen. So after some extensive Internet research (read: a 30-second Google search), I determined that a pound of chopped fresh broccoli is more or less equivalent to 4½ cups. While cooking, I decided that the extra ½ cup wasn’t all that necessary. So there you go.
