- 1 (12 to 16 ounce) package frozen broccoli florets
- 1 (12 ounce) can evaporated fat-free milk
- 1/4 cup flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt

- 1 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed mushroom soup
- 1 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese, divided

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Bring water to a boil in a large dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add broccoli and cook 5 minutes or until crisp-tender. Transfer broccoli to a large bowl with a slotted spoon. Cut up chicken in bite-size pieces and add chicken to boiling water; reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes until done. Transfer chicken to bowl with broccoli. Combine evaporated milk, flour, salt, pepper, and nutmeg in a saucepan, stirring with a whisk until smooth. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; cook 1 minute stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Add mayonnaise, sour cream, Worcestershire sauce, mushroom soup, and 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, stirring until well combined. Add mixture to broccoli and chicken. Stir gently until combined.  Spoon mixture into a 13 inch by 9 inch baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup parmesan cheese and sprinkle top with fresh pepper (optional). Bake at 400 degrees for 50 minutes or until mixture bubbles at the edges and cheese begins to brown.
