"This chicken and broccoli casserole is my 13-year-old son's favorite dish and the one he requests for every one of his birthdays. It is very good and combines the creamy texture of the cheese sauce with the crunchy texture of the corn flakes. It is a standby meal and easy to make, freeze, and bake at a later date. You can freeze it up to 6 months. If frozen, bake uncovered for 1 hour." — SeanG

My family liked this one (except for the super picky eater who doesn't like anything made with cream soups). I found it to be a little too lemon-y from the juice. And I should have drained the broccoli better as it ended up being a little runny in the bottom.
Next time I'll cut down the lemon juice by half and then I think the flavour balance would work better for me.
Very good! I didn't have corn flakes, so used corn chips and it worked just fine. Also added corn. The family approved and said i should make it again.
this is good instead of lemon juice I use a teaspoon of mustard. I also serve it with rice. I really like it with cornflakes. I used to top it with crushed crackers or bread crumbs but cornflakes is much better.Also i have left the chicken out before and added extra veggies. Mushrooms are especially good.
This is almost the exact recipe I grew up eating (and I was also known to request it for my birthdays!) Precooked rotisserie chickens weren't at every grocery when I was little. My mom always just cooked boneless tenders or breasts, then cubed. As a super lazy grownup cook, I buy precooked frozen chicken breast cubes and use frozen broccoli florets. The one thing I've done differently over the years is to increase the amount of curry powder. I'm up to about 2 tablespoons, but I really love curry. Don't tinker with the lemon juice! I've left it out by mistake, and tried extra "just to see". The first had no zip, and the second was awful. I have also had good success freezing, just add the corn flakes after it comes out of the freezer to keep them from getting too soggy. Crushed corn Chex works great, too. My family likes it with rice. Worth making enough to have leftovers!
