  • 1 Garlic Clove minced
  • 2 tbsp Plain Flour
  • 200 grams Cream Cheese And Chive Packet Mix

Method

  1. Slice chicken breast horizontally to make thinner fillets, I placed a spatula on top and sliced through with a shape knife so that my hand or fingers were not in the way.

  3. Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  4. Grease the bottom of baking dish with spray oil or 1 teaspoon of butter, lay fresh pasta sheets in one layer on the bottom.
  5. Top pasta with one layer of chicken, then broccoli, drizzle with 1/4 of cheesy white sauce.
  6. Repeat step 4 starting with a pasta sheet on top of white sauce, then chicken, broccoli, sauce. Do this until all ingredients are used, we had 3 layers in our dish the finial layer having a thicker coating of the cheesy white sauce on the top layer.
