pounds chicken breast tenders (not breaded)
2
packages (10 ounces each) frozen broccoli spears, thawed and drained
1
can (8 ounces) sliced water chestnuts, drained
1

Expert Tips

Ellen T. Shares her Recipe "When I don't feel well, I don't like fussing in the kitchen. This was such an easy recipe, I was up to preparing it even when I was very tired. It's also great for entertaining."

To make ahead: Cover baked casserole with aluminum foil. Freeze no longer than 2 months. About 1 hour before serving, heat oven to 350°. Bake in covered baking dish 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until hot.

A Note from Dr. Ghosh This recipe is a great source of many essential minerals. Lack of magnesium, one of the minerals here, can become a problem if malnutrition occurs, as it can during cisplatin chemotherapy. Magnesium deficiencies can lead to weakness, lethargy, nausea and vomiting.
