Stovetop Chicken and Broccoli Casserole

8 ounces whole-wheat egg noodles
1 14-ounce can chicken broth
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed, cut into ¾-inch pieces

1 14- to 16-ounce package frozen broccoli florets, thawed and chopped if desired
1½ cups milk
½ cup mayonnaise
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 ½ teaspoons dry mustard
½ teaspoon garlic powder
¼ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 ½ cups shredded Colby-Jacl cheese or Cheddar Cheese

  Place noodles in a large skillet. Pour broth over the noodles. Layer chicken, then broccoli over the noodles.

Whisk milk, mayonnaise, flour, dry mustard, garlic powder, salt and pepper in a medium bowl. Pour over the broccoli.

Bring to a simmer over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to maintain a simmer, cover and cook, stirring once or twice, until the noodles and chicken are cooked through, 15 to 18 minutes.

Meanwhile, position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler.
When the casserole is done, sprinkle cheese on top and broil until lightly browned, about 3 minutes.
