Nutritional values

Cheese and broccoli convince with a lot of calcium, which is needed to build bones and helps determine their strength for a lifetime.

Instead of broccoli florets you can use cauliflower. The cheddar cheese can be replaced with other varieties, such as Gouda or butter cheese.

The casserole dish is microwave & dishwasher safe and oven safe up to 300°C. The set consists of 2 rectangular casserole dishes made of thick-walled ceramic and can be found at our partner OTTO.

Preparation steps


For the sauce, boil broth in a pot and add cream. Mix flour with 2-3 tablespoons cold water. Pour flour mix to broth and bring to a boil until it binds slightly. Let everything boil for 15 minutes at low heat while stirring. In the meantime, grate cheese. Mix cheese into the sauce and season with salt and pepper.


Clean carrots, peel and cut into 1/8-inch thin slices. Cook in boiling salted water for 5 minutes. Meanwhile, wash broccoli florets and add to carrots for the last 2 minutes. Drain, rinse and drain.


Peel and chop shallot and garlic. Rinse chicken, pat dry and cut into small pieces. Melt butter in a frying pan. Saute shallot and garlic in it for 4 minutes over medium heat. Add meat and sauté for 4 minutes.


Place chicken with vegetables in a baking dish (approx. 10"x12"). Spread the sauce over it, mix everything and smooth it down a bit. Bake the casserole in a preheated oven at 180 °C / 350 °F for 25-30 minutes. Meanwhile, wash the parsley, shake dry and chop. To serve, sprinkle casserole with parsley.
