This recipe was great! I made some additions: 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup cheese extra for the filling, marjoram, Mrs. Dash Table Blend, garlic powder, lemon garlic, 1/2 cup of onions that I sauteed with the chicken. I steamed the broccoli. Once chicken and broccoli were done, I mixed EVERYTHING together, poured in 8 x 8 baking dish. I sprinkled cheese (however much you want)on top and doubled the bread crumb mixture. I used cream of chicken soup instead of cream of broccoli. This was soooooo good!

I'm new to the site and a little confused as to the rating system. from what I can see, out of 50 reviews, 35 of them, or 70%, are for a DIFFERENT RECIPE that vaguely resembles the one that is published. Also, if you read the ones that actually rate this recipe, AS WRITTEN, it ends up getting about 2 3/4 stars. I'm glad that people get to rate their own creations (most of which are 5's. What a shock ;-)), but this rating system is highly suspect, especially when I'm looking for good, nutritious food to feed my gang. Rate me disappointed!

Well, after giving this recipe a second chance...I LOVED IT. Per previous reviews, I added dashes of lemon pepper seasoning, season salt and a dash of garlic powder while coooking the chicken. I also added a little more broccoli and a little more bread crumbs than what the recipe calls for. I'm glad I didn't give up on this one, it was worth it. Next time, I'm going to have to double the recipe so that everyone gets their fill. This recipe is worth trying...with some minor modifications. SOOO cheesy and broccoli! YUM!

This was very good after I made some changes based on other reviews. I steamed a 14 oz. bag of frozen broccoli florets instead of fresh. My chicken was well seasoned when I boiled it. I used the 98% FF soup. I added about 1/2+ cup sour cream, chicken boullion granules, salt, pepper, garlic powder. I put at least 1/2 cup cheese in the casserole itself then another 1/2 cup on top. I ended up just stirring the broccoli, chicken, cheese and soup mixture all up together before putting it in the dish. I used buttered Ritz crackers on top. It was yummy and still very easy and fast since I keep chopped, cooked chicken in the freezer all the time. I'll make it again!!

I have to double this recipe each time I make it so we can have seconds, and leftovers! This is the only way I can get my 17 month old son to eat broccoli. I've never tried this with cream of broccoli soup, but use cream of mushroom instead. I mix the soup, milk, black pepper, 1/2 tsp corriander, and 1 tsp garlic powder in a large bowl. Then throw in the chicken, broccoli and some cheese to coat. I use more chicken and cheese than called for, use crushed butter crackers instead of bread crumbs, and cook in a 9x13 dish. Thanks Terry!!!!

I definitely wanted to alter this recipe to add more flavor, because as-is, it looked like it was missing a lot. I used Campbell's Chicken with Herbs soup intead of Cream of Broccoli, and added about 1/2 cup (maybe a little more) of sour cream, about a tablespoon of Mrs. Dash Original, about a tablespoon of McCormick Lemon & Herb Seasoning and about a teaspoon of poultry seasoning. Per another review, I also added cheddar to the sauce and doubled the bread crumb mixture. I served it over rice. PERFECT! Will make again and again!

This was a good place to start, but as written very bland. Made a quick fix to the sauce by adding white wine, lite mayo, lite sour cream, curry, garlic and onion powders and black pepper. Topped with fresh buttered bread crumbs and some parm. True comfort food and thanks!

Update: You can use Healthy Request Soups & 2% milk cheeses as a great alternative. This recipe is low fat/cal/carb as it is... but these changes are even better. I noticed no change in taste. Oh, and I made this today without baking it & have it in my frig for dinner later in the week. It's a great make-ahead dinner that bakes off beautifully. This is such a basic recipe, there are so many ways to enhance it depending on your tastes. I add 2 tbsp of curry (and I don't even LIKE curry) and use mayo instead of the milk. It's a great dish served over rice, my mother has made it for years and it's always been a family favorite. You can use frozen broccoli in a pinch, or freshly steamed is even better. As for the soup... I use whatever flavor I have in my cupboard.
