Lemon Chicken Pierogie Bake

Stephanie does a great job of not only making up her own recipes but also riffing on well known ones.  Here's here interpretation of the internet famous Bacon Pierogie Bake.

I wish I had added the veggies as suggested, but was running low on time so skipped it.  It definitely made for a much prettier plate for Stephanie than the sort of bland colors on mine, so I'm posting Stephanie's original directions so you can avoid the mistake I made!  But the taste was quite good.  It was nice and light, which is so nice as we're all itching for spring weather to arrive and match the calendar!

1 tbsp butter

2 cloves garlic
1 cup broth
juice from half a lemon
1 tsp lemon zest
4 tbsp cream cheese
3 green onions, sliced thin.
1 package frozen pierogies
1 cup cooked chicken, diced
1 cup cooked veggies, any kind
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1- Preheat the oven to 400.
2- In a skillet melt the butter. Stir in the garlic and allow to saute until fragrant, about 2-3 minutes. Add the flour and stir well. Slowly pour in the broth.
3- Bring the broth to a boil, then reduce the heat. Add the lemon juice, zest, and cream cheese. Stir until cheese is melted. Stir in the green onion.
4- In an oven safe dish lay the pierogies on the bottom. Add the chicken and veggies, and pour the sauce over the whole dish. Top with the parmesan cheese.
5- Cover with foil and bake 25 minutes. Remove the foil and bake an additional 5 minutes.
