This was really good. Even my picky kids liked it!I sliced the potatoes and then microwaved them for about 5 minutes to soften them up and cut down on the cooking time. I will definitely make this again.
6-21-01-Followed directions according to recipe. After 1 hour, the potatoes were still not thoroughly cooked, tried baking uncovered for another hour and they were still not fully cooked. Gave up on eating the potatoes. However, the chicken came out moist and the broccoli was good. Might try again if someone can give any suggestions on how to improve!
So, first off, the potatoes came out fine. I don't know what these other people did wrong, but mine were fully cooked in about an hour. Second, The amount of soup/water mixture in the recipe is inadequate. I doubled it, since I luckily had two cans of soup on hand. I also added a breadcrumb/cheese topping to the top and baked it for about 8 more minutes uncovered. My husband really liked this dish, and I thought it was good but it wasn't as cheesy as I was hoping. I would probably add cheddar cheese to the soup mixture if I were to make it again.
This recipe let me stay home from the grocery store for another day in beautiful style! I used my own cheese sauce, and in the future will add salt to the potatoes before cooking. Also, the directions were a little vague after adding the broccoli: recover and put back in the oven or not? Mix the broccoli in or layer? I layered everything, artfully arranging the broccoli on top, which required a few extra minutes in the oven (covered!) and sprinkled more cheese on top, which the kids loved. Next time I'll add a little garlic and white pepper for a little more pizzaz, and maybe some red bells. The kids loved it, and my husband scraped his plate. I give an extra star for that! I would say that this recipe is a good place to start.
I added red pepper chunks and diced up garlic over the chicken and potatoes. Someone said bland so sprinkled a little Cajun spice before sauce poured over. When I added the broccoli I spooned the sauce over and added bread crumbs and Parmesan over then baked the rest of the time called for and perfect . Love the inspirations from these recipes and the comments combined.
I left out the broccoli because I can only eat broccoli by itself for some reason. One easy peasy suggestion for the potatoes. Use canned, sliced, white potatoes for the perfect consistency. No muss, no fuss.
uggggg. Even with precooking the potatoes in the microwave until almost soft, the potatoes remained hard after an hour in the oven! also, the sauce was a runny mess...all watery and bland. blaaa. I gave it 2 stars instead of 1 because my sweet husband cleaned his plate and said he "didn't mind it".
My family and kids loved this one. Couldn't get enough. Thank you for sharing, sure made dinner easy to fix.
