The Rich-Tasting Dish That Gets Everything Right
Broccoli and chicken are two made-for-each-other casserole ingredients; add some white wine, cream and Parmesan, and there's little else you really need to make a delicious and satisfying meal. This unfussy recipe has a couple of key tenets: first, it calls for chicken thighs, which are far richer-tasting than breasts; second, it includes thickly sliced, fresh white mushrooms (a step up from the usual canned cream of mushroom soup); and, finally, everything gets topped with panko; the Japanese bread crumbs are the best way to achieve the crispiest crust.
