Super simple Cheesy chicken and broccoli

This is a very high protein dish that can be eaten by itself or just as easily be served over rice or pasta or quickly made into a pot pie for family members.

1 rotisserie chicken deboned (or 2 pounds of baked chicken)
8 oz of frozen broccoli
8 oz of frozen cauliflower
12 oz of milk
2/3 cup ricotta cheese
1 cup shredded cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
2/3 cup chicken broth

Directions :
Debone the chicken into a medium sized crock pot on high and add the milk.
Add half of a one pound bag each of frozen broccoli and frozen cauliflower to a large microwave bowl with the broth and heat on high for 5 mins or until the vegetables are fork tender.
In another bowl add the ricotta, shredded cheese and sour cream and the now hot chicken broth and stir then microwave for 1 min and stir again.  If the cheese mix is not smooth yet heat for 45 more seconds.
Add the cheese mix and hot vegetables to the crockpot and allow to cook on high for 30-45 mins while doing other stuff and then then to low.

To make into a cheesy chicken pot pie for the family scoop a cup of the mix into a large oiled rammikin and using Jiffy or Bisquick mix make the topping.  I use half a cup of mix and add small amounts of milk til I have a some what soft biscuit batter and spoon it on top of the cheesy chicken casserole.
