MAKE IT A 5 STAR RECIPE WITH THESE TIPS!! (I made this by the recipe before & it was too bland!) Ok -- didn't boil the chicken I cooked on stove with 1/2tsp paprika. Then make it with cream of chicken &cream of mushroom. OMIT THE MAYO! Put 3/4 milk in instead! Mix soup w/1 minced garlic clove 1/8 tsp onion powder a tiny pinch of ginger - you don't want too much cause it's potent & 1/8 tsp italian seasoning. And then skip layering everything! Just stir it all in the bowl that you stirred the soup in it's a lot easier!...But put the cheese on top. & just a note -- I didn't have stuffing mix so I just crumbled corn flakes on top then sprinkled italian style breadcrumbs! That'll make it a 5-star recipe for ya!

Honestly I don't understand why the rating for this recipe is so high. Maybe it's because my standard for food is really high but this recipe is BLAND BLAND BLAND. I read some other people's recipe and it seems to be way better going to try it soon. Mayo cream of mushroom soup doesn't do anything. I don't understand why you add it. Milk sounds way better... the cream is too thick. Also boiling the chicken by itself is a terrible idea. Chicken comes out super bland and has the pure chicken taste which I don't enjoy. Chicken without any seasoning is pretty terrible in my opinion. Try another recipe... I learned to never follow a recipe that says: just boil the chicken.

I've made the recipe twice in the past week.... The first time I added some of the ingredients suggested in the reviews: I used an extra can of soup subbed 1/2 can of milk for the mayo added an extra cup of cheese so that one was mixed in the casserole while the other cup topped it and I cooked the chicken in chicken broth seasoned with chicken seasoning. I also used a whole box of stuffing mix and cooked it before topping it on the casserole and added sauteed mushrooms in the mix. It was good but needed some tweaking The second time around was a hit. My boyfriend said he liked it better than the first and my sorority sisters inhaled the dish at our potluck last night. One sister told me it was the best casserole she'd ever had and another has already asked for the recipe...the trick is instead of topping the casserole with the cheese and stuffing mix it ALL together. Then I topped the whole thing with bread crumbs. It was so much better than with the stuffing on top. Oh yeah...and I added yet ANOTHER cup of cheese. Needless to say no more tweaking is necessary. Awesome and thanks so much!

OK...I made this tonight for the first time and had to hightail it to the computer to give it a rating because it was SO fantastic! I took a little advice from other users to make it better. I used approximately 1/2 of a leftover roasted chicken 1 bag of mixed frozen broccoli cauliflour & carrots(instead of just broccoli) 2 cans cream/chicken soup(in place of 1 can cream/mush) 3/4 cup milk (in place of mayo) and 1 cup bread crumbs mixed w/2 Tbls. melted butter for the topping (instead of stuffing). I also added 1/2 tsp. chopped garlic 1/8 tsp. onion powder 1/8 tsp. Italian seasoning and 3 shakes of cumin to the soup/cheese mixture. Everyone in the house raved about this dish! It fed one hungry husband two hungry teenage boys and 1 hungry mom...with a little left over for lunch tomorrow.:) This recipe is a keeper! Bon Appetite!

With modifications this casserole does not disappoint the taste buds. I boiled the chicken with a can of chicken broth 1/2 a can of cream of chicken soup and a little bit of water. I also added some chopped garlic salt and pepper to the boiling water. Once boiled I cut the chicken into cubes. I then combined the boiled mixture with the mayo the cream of mushroom soup and mixed in the cubed chicken. I also mixed in the broccoli. I followed the recipe from that point. Others have posted that the chicken was bland and dry but if done this way you'll have great results.

I made this tonight and was pleased with it. Even my SUPER picky 5 yr. old cleaned his plate!!! My husband who usually HATES casseroles liked it as well. This is what I did: I used 2 cans cream of chicken instead of 1 cream of mushroom I used half a can of milk instead of mayo I used chopped broccoli (comes frozen) and I cooked the stuffing mix before placing it on the casserole. I also mixed the soup milk chicken and broccoli before placing in casserole dish. I covered it with the cheese and then the cooked stuffing. It was good this way but i will make some changes...I will use more cheese (maybe 2 cups) 2 cans of cream of mushroom and use 2 boxes of stuffing mix instead of one. My 5 year old said he wanted more of the bread and i agreed. Oh I boiled the chicken in chicken broth with a bay leaf. This is a good quick meal. I am making a meal for a woman at my church next week and I will use this recipe.

We really enjoyed the recipe. I did make a few changes... I added an extra can of soup... and additional cheese (we love cheese) 2 cups...cut broccoli into smaller pieces...used ritz crackers in place of stuffing... and added seasoning to the top before using melted butter to seal in the flavor (1/2 stick)... oh and a layer of rice to the bottom for a full meal deal. I also mixed all the main ingredients together before layering it over the rice and topping with ritz garlic salt powder and pepper. A definate do-over in our house. Good Luck to you!

This is a great base for a broccoli casserole. I did several things different. First thing I did was boil chicken broth water chicken cube and two crushed garlic cloves to a boil. I added about six frozen chicken strips to the water and boiled for 10 minutes. While that was cooking I sauteed half a onion and about 4 cloves of garlic in evoo then added one can of cream of chicken and one can of cream of broccoli to the onions an garlic and reduced to low. when the chicken was done i scooped it out and placed it on paper towles to drain. Then added a bag or frozen broccoli califlower/carrot mix to the chicken stock and boiled for a few minutes. I shredded the chicken added it to the cream of chicken mixture along with the drained veggies. mixed it all up then put it in the baking pan with the cheese topping and crackers. OMG! SOOOO GOOD!! Thanks for this I've never made casserole before and this was just the perfect recipie to get me going!!!

5 stars. I find it annoying when people change nearly the ENTIRE recipe when reviewing it. Rude. Delicious as is.
