How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare 13x9 casserole baking dish with cooking spray.
- Steam broccoli until just tender or blanch. Set aside.
- In a medium stock pot, heat olive oil and butter over medium heat. Add leeks and salt and cook until softened, stirring occasionally, for about 4 minutes. Add garlic and cook an additional 1-2 minutes, stirring. Add flour and stir to coat. Add chicken stock, milk, wine (or whatever you chose from options), thyme, and pepper. Cook, stirring, until thickened a bit. Remove from heat, stir in sour cream, 1/4 cup Parmesan, 1/2 cup cheddar, and mustard. Stir to incorporate.
- Arrange broccoli in casserole dish. Pour 1/2 of sauce over it. Add chicken and top with remaining sauce. Top with remaining cheeses and cracker crumbs. Bake for 20-25 minutes. Brown for 1 minute under broiler if desired.
- Serve alongside rice or noodles (egg noodles preferred) if desired. You may also add a layer of cooked rice or noodles before the broccoli and bake it right into the casserole if you'd like.
