Ingredients

  • Cooking spray
  • 2 c fresh broccoli florets
  • 1/2 c grated Gruyere cheese
  • 1 clove garlic that is finely chopped
  • 4 (6 to 8 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 tsp chopped fresh thyme
  • Sea salt and ground black pepper
  • 1 c low-fat evaporated milk
  • 1/2 c low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 c dry sherry
  • 1 1/2 tsp cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp Dijon mustard

Directions

Preheat the boiler. Lightly apply your cooking spray inside of a shallow rectangular baking dish. Take a medium pot and fill it with water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil. Add the broccoli and cook until it turns a bright green and is tender. Drain and run under cold water. Drain again and dry on paper towels.

Cut the broccoli into small pieces and mix it in a bowl with garlic and Gruyere. Make a 3 inch pocket in the middle of the chicken breast using a paring knife. Stuff each piece of chicken with the broccoli mixture. Rub each side of the chicken with oil, thyme, salt, and pepper.

Warm up a large nonstick skillet over medium heat for five minutes. Place the chicken in the pan and cook until golden brown. Place it in the baking dish.

While chicken cooks in skillet mix together milk and stock in a small saucepan. Season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Whisk in sherry and cornstarch until smooth. Cook until sauce has thickened. Remove from heat and pour in Parmesan. Place 2 tbsp of sauce on each chicken and place inside the broiler. Cook for 2 to 3 minutes.
