Honey Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

This is a dish my wife cooked up for me while we were dating. I loved it so much I asked her to marry me (although it was because of so much more than this recipe). It’s simple, warm and hearty—perfect for the cold winter months. Serve with a warm baguette and a glass of red wine and you’re all set. Hope you can feel the love in this recipe, because we always do!
