1/26 Chicken & Broccoli Casserole

This is not actually a casserole, but it reminds me of tuna casserole….so that’s what I’m calling it :-)

If you need something fast and easy, make this. It makes 5 large servings for the week, or 10 small servings.

I ate mine everyday this week for lunch and it was a large serving and kept me full for hours.

Chicken & Broccoli Casserole.

– 1 rotisserie chicken
– 2 packages of organic broccoli slaw
– 1/2 cup dried cranberries
– 1 broccoli crown, chopped
– 1 1/4 c of paleo mayo
– 1 tbsp honey
– 1 tsp poppy seeds (optional)
– 3 tbsp unsalted sunflower seeds

1) pull all the chicken off your rotisserie and set the bones aside (you can use it for bone broth later)
2) in a large bowl, empty the bags of broccoli slaw, add the pulled chicken, cranberries, and chopped broccoli.

Make the paleo mayo.
You can do this by hand or in a blender/food processor.
1) separate 3 egg yolks, toss the whites in a container and eat at breakfast the next day.
2) let the yolks come to room temperature. Once at room temp. start to vigorously whisk, or if using a blender, pulse 3-4 times.
3) once you’ve mixed the yolks, begin adding some extra virgin olive oil. A little at a time until it begins to thicken just slightly.
4) continue mixing and adding olive oil until it reaches a thick consistency (it will turn lighter in color as you add more olive oil).
5) once the desired thickness is reached, add a little vinegar (approx. 1 tbsp). I personally love rice vinegar or red wine vinegar.
6) stir in the vinegar, then add the honey, poppy seeds, and a touch of S&P.
7) quickly incorporate and pour the mayo over the broccoli slaw/chicken mixture.

1) mix all of the ingredients together well, and portion into containers.
2) top with a sprinkle of sunflower seeds and you have quick meals for the week.

  1. Murph – This is fantastic. I was a little skeptical while making the mayo last night that I wasn’t doing it right or wouldn’t have enough (I had to adjust for adding extra broccoli and cauliflower to it) but it turned out really delicious! Eating it for breakfast this morning haha, but its packed away for some kind of meal the rest of the week! Yum =]
