This is one of my all-time favorite recipes - mainly because I can make it once and have four dinners done!

Serves 4 people, 4 times.


  • 1 cup butter (or margarine)
  • 2 lbs broccoli, cut up or frozen chopped)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 8 cups milk (I save money by using reconstituted dry milk)
  • 4 cups cooked chicken, cut up
  • 2 lbs cheese, grated (I use Swiss, but any kind will do)
  • salt and pepper to taste


Make a white sauce by melting the butter in a pan. Add the flour, stirring constantly. When it reaches the boiling point, slowly add the milk, mixing constantly with a wire whisk. Once it has started to thicken, remove from heat. Layer one cup of chicken and 1/2 lbs of broccoli into 4 - 8x8 baking pans. In each pan, sprinkle 1/2 pound of cheese and top with 2 cups of the cream sauce. Cover pans with foil and freeze. *

To serve: Thaw. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Or you can pour into a pan and heat on the stove top. Serve over cooked rice, pasta, potatoes, toast, whatever!

*NOTE: You can also just combine the ingredients and freeze in a ziplock bag or any plastic container. If you are freezing in something other than layered in a baking pan, you might want to leave out the cheese - put it in a ziplock and tape to the rest of the dish in the freezer to be added towards the end of the cooking.

The recipe says that it serves a family of four, but we can still feed a little more than that right now. When one doesn't cut it anymore, it's easy enough to make three or two meals instead of four!
