Ingredients

4 small boneless skinless chicken breasts, (about 1 lb/450 g)
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
2 green onions, sliced
3 tbsp (45 mL) all-purpose flour
2 1/2 cups (625 mL) Milk
2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh basil or 
1 tsp (5 mL) dried basil
3/4 cup (180 mL) Canadian Provolone or 
Canadian Swiss or 
Mozzarella cheese, shredded
8 oz (250 g) broad egg noodles
2 cups (500 mL) fresh or frozen green beans, chopped
1 cup (250 mL) grape tomatoes, cut in half

Preparation

Preheat oven to 400 °F (200 °C). Butter a shallow 10- to 12-cup (2.5 to 3 L) baking dish.

Sprinkle chicken breasts with 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper. In a large nonstick skillet, melt butter over medium heat; add chicken and cook, turning once, for about 10 min or until chicken is well browned; transfer to a plate.

Add green onions to skillet; sauté for 1 min. Whisk flour into milk; gradually pour into pan. Cook, stirring constantly; for about 3 min or until slightly thickened. Remove from heat, stir in basil, 1/2 cup (125 mL) of the cheese and remaining salt and pepper.

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook noodles for about 5 min or until almost tender, adding green beans 2 min before end of cooking (or 1 min if frozen); drain and spread in baking dish.

Pour 3/4 of sauce over noodles in dish; toss gently to coat. Arrange chicken and tomatoes on top. Spoon remaining sauce on chicken; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake for about 15 min or until thermometer inserted in thickest part of chicken registers 165 °F (75 °C) and is no longer pink inside.

Tips

Replace green beans with broccolini, blanching as directed, or with chopped drained marinated artichoke hearts and add them with tomatoes. Add 1 cured chorizo sausage, sliced, with tomatoes.
