  • Author: caroline

  • Yield: 1 1x


Perfect when you want a homecooked meal, but don’t have the energy to cook. This chicken and broccoli bake requires minimal prep and washing up.

The default recipe serves one.


  • 85g fusilli pasta
  • 1 tbsp plain / all-purpose flour
  • 1 small garlic clove, crushed or minced
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • 60ml / 1/4 cup milk (full fat or skimmed both work – but full fat will give a slightly creamier sauce)
  • 60ml / 1/4 cup chicken stock
  • 1 chicken breast, cubed – around 125g / 4.5oz
  • 100g / 3.5oz mushrooms, sliced
  • 5 pieces of tenderstem broccoli
  • 15g / 0.5oz grated cheddar cheese



  1. Preheat the oven to 200C / 400F. Add the pasta to the baking tray and sprinkle over the flour. 
  2. Pour over the milk and stock and then stir in the garlic, oregano and mustard. 
  3. Next top the pasta mix with the chicken breast and mushrooms and stir everything together. 
  4. Cover with foil and place in the oven for 20 minutes. 
  5. Remove the foil from the tray and lay the broccoli on top and then sprinkle over the cheese. Place back in the oven and bake for a further 20 minutes. 


  1. You can use any type of pasta for this recipe, although fusilli or farfalle work best as they add more height to the dish, while pasta with gaps or holes, such as rigatoni, may trap the flour inside.
  2. The mushrooms can be swapped with spinach or green beans. 
  3. If you prefer to use regular broccoli then cut into small florets and allow around 85g / 3oz per person. 
  4. Make sure to freshly grate the cheese, as pre-grated varieties have additives that will stop it from melting as well.
  5. The cheese can be substituted for any type of grateable cheese.
  6. Leftovers can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days and reheated in the oven. Freezing isn’t advised. 
  7. Nutrition information is based on using whole/full fat milk.
