  • 4

    baking potatoes, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks

  • Salt

  • 1

    head broccoli—cut into 1-inch florets, stalks peeled and cut into ½-inch cubes

  • 4

    skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)

  • 2

    tablespoons fresh thyme or 1 teaspoon dried

  • Pepper

  • 2

    tablespoons extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)

  • 2

    tablespoons butter

  • 2

    tablespoons flour

  • ½

    cup chicken broth

  • 1

    cup milk or half-and-half

  • 1

    cup shredded gouda cheese

  • PreparationIn a large saucepan, cover the potatoes with cold water. Bring to a boil, salt the water and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook for 8 minutes. Drain and return the vegetables to the saucepan.

  • While the vegetables are cooking, season the chicken with the thyme and salt and pepper. In a skillet, heat the EVOO, 2 turns of the pan, over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 6 minutes on each side.

  • In a small, heavy saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute, then whisk in the chicken broth and ½ cup milk and cook until thickened, 2-3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Using a wooden spoon, stir in the cheese in a figure-eight motion until melted, 2 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  • Add the remaining ½ cup milk to the broccoli and potatoes and mash together; season with salt and pepper.

  • Cut the chicken on an angle into ½-inch-thick slices and place on plates. Top with the gouda gravy. Serve with the brocco-tatoes.
