This easy Italian bake combines the delicious tastes of chicken, broccoli, and cheese.  This creates a quick to make Italian inspired dish. The recipe uses eggs and heavy whipping cream for a base that will crust. The batter is flavored with with mustard, tomato sauce, garlic and herb seasoning for some extra flavor. This is great for a quick lunch or dinner, or even as leftovers for breakfast.

The recipe is extremely versatile, and seasonings and flavors can be changed up too. I like to use a garlic and herb seasoning since it reminds me of past carby Italian dishes I’ve had. Most stores carry a garlic and herb seasoning, so it shouldn’t be hard to find.

If you’re planning this as a make ahead meal, then I can tell you that this Italian bake freezes well. I like to cut individual pieces and place in freezer bags. When you’re ready to eat one, you can either wait for it to thaw out or pop it in the microwave.
