"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
Curried Chicken & Broccoli Casserole Haiku: "Bit too lemony. And saw no need for 'layers.' Just moosh together." Not sure what the point was of layering broccoli, then chicken, then the soup/mayo mixture, so I just mixed them together. We also thought that 1/4 c. of lemon juice was too much. AR's "Chicken LaPaloma" is very similar to this, and I think I like it better b/c it has less lemon juice. The curry is the real stand-out here; it's unlikely that I'll ever make a chick/brocc casserole w/o it. Oh the only thing that I changed was topping half of it w/ French-fried onions (my daughter's fave casserole topper), and the other half w/ bran flakes that I'd mixed w/ a little melted butter, as I find corn flakes too sweet for some reason.
This was a great recipe!!! I added cooked penne noodles with the broccoli and chicken in a bowl and poured that as the bottom layer. Then added real bacon bits on top of the cheese (I used more cheese then suggested, because I love cheese) with the crushed corn flakes on top which added a ton of flavor. I will definitally be making this again!!!
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 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!
Do yourself a flavor and lighten this dish up by substituting 1 cup of Plain, non-fat Yoghurt for the cup of Mayo! I'm never going back to the mayo again! Add salt to taste after if you prefer, however I assure you the taste of this dish will not be altered!
Mom made this recipe at least twice a month for my entire teenage life. With that said, I feel I have earned the ability to comment on and tweak this recipe...(A single working mother, mom disliked food prep and simply didn't have the time to cook extravagant meals for four kids). She would make this recipe with frozen broccoli and diced chicken breast.) *Please note, raw chicken adds substantial cooking time.*
I remember this dish with its over abundance of fat laden mayo feeling too heavy. I also recently tried lightening this recipe with lite mayo instead and still, it tasted too heavy.
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 really good! It's one of those meals that I grew up eating and now make for my kids. The only changes I make are 1) adding more broccoli, 2)making my own cream of chicken soup instead of using canned, and MOST IMPORTANTLY, 3)using seasoned croutons in place of the cornflakes. This adds more flavor and a better crunch than just plain corn flakes.
