Reviews for Broccoli-Chicken Cups
"Yum! will make these again, kids loved them"
"Made these for our NewYear's dinner and everyone loved these! Super easy recipe - also used French's Fried Onions!"
"I didn't have Rice Krispies, so I used the French's Fried Onions too, like another reviewer. These are wonderful!!!"
"Can someone tell why the rice crispies"
"These were very good. I used Mozzarella cheese, no cereal, used cream of chicken soup and fresh cooked broccoli (lightly cooked for 1 1/2 minutes in microwave). I used the large muffin pan. I rolled the biscuits out then pressed them into the muffin cups. My husband really liked them. Next time I will try adding some spices though."
"My husband and I are vegetarians and I substituted Gardein vegetarian chicken pieces for the cubed cooked chicken. They were delicious for dinner and made a beautiful appetizing presentation. I look forward to making them again and again using different ingredients. What an ingenious, delicious recipe, Shirley."
"these were very tasty and easy to make. would recommend to anyone's family! Nice way to get veggies in for kids."
"These were very tastey. I used two buns for one and they got a little more brown. Also used fresh brocolli and it turned out ok. My kids like it."
"these were so easy to make and they tasted delicious. i used cream of chicken since it was what i had on hand. i did flavor the chicken to out liking as i cooked it. i didn;t add the cereal but it came out fine without it."
"My husband does not like broccoli so I used green chili instead. I also used cream of chicken soup.We live in New Mexico and chili is always available here. Very good!!!"
"Why the cereal? I saw it in another muffin cup recipe too."
"Very good and easy!"
"I had a hard time fitting everything into the biscuit in the regular muffing tin. I was afraid that it would end up all over the bottom of my over, but it did not overflow. I think that next time I will use the larger muffin tin to make it easier to fill. These were delicious and easy to make. We enjoyed them as leftovers for lunch the next day as well."
"My whole family liked it. I did use Ritz Crackers instead of Rice Crispies. They asked me to make it again. Thank you. I am going to try a Ham and Cheese variation also."
"This was quite tasty!! I did change it up a bit, I used chicken sausage instead of regular chicken, fresh broccoli, and ritz crackers instead of rice krispies. I think the ritz crackers caused it to be a bit more salty, but not so much that it wasn't good. Also, I used 2 packages of chicken sausage which was WAY more than 1 cup, it was enough for 15 cups. I also cooked the chicken sausage and then threw the broccoli, soup, and a bit of chicken broth in the pan and cooked that for a bit to get the broccoli cooked and blend the flavors. I added the cheese to this mixture in the last few minutes. I made these ahead and then popped them in the oven for about 25-30 minutes and they came out fabulously!!"
"I made several apps for New Years and this, by far was the favorite! The only change I would make is to use mini muffin pans and use one biscuit for every two. They were filling and we had a lot of apps to choose from. Most were cut in half. But SO delicious!"
"This is a easy, delicious meal! Instead of using cereal and soup, I substituted coconut milk creamer, no sugar added."
"These are excellent. They freeze well and make for an instant meal."
"made the original recipe minus the cereal. then i made them with taco meat and cheese with toppings.they were also great. will be making these over and over. thanks for the great recipe."
"Great recipe! However I used leftover Easter ham instead of chicken. Definitely will make again! Yum!"
"This was super easy & my family loved them! Thanks for the recipe!"
"I used cream of chicken soup, omitted the crisp rice cereal, and added shredded mozzarella, along with the cheddar cheese. My family loved them and I reheated the leftovers in a 350 degree oven, on a cookie sheet, for 20 minutes and they crisped up nicely. I'll definitely make this recipe again!"
"Made these for the family, and everyone loved them. Made my biscuits with Bisquick. Used the rice crispies, but couldn't figure out why they are in there. Am making these for a church dinner this week for 140 people. Actually, pretty easy, even for a crowd!"
"Super easy to make these and it makes a lot. I only made half of this and still ending up with lots of filling to stuff these. I think the rice crispies keeps the biscuit from getting soggy and it cooked nicely. Leftovers actually warmed up decently."
"Very tasty. I used the large muffin tins (6 per tin). I did have some trouble getting them out of the tins. I'm thinking I should have used two biscuits in each muffin tin. Also, I may have filled them too full. I will definitely make these again."
"I halved the recipe, omitted the rice cereal (didn't see the point) and used cream of chicken instead of cream of mushroom soup and they were SO good; I will definitely make this recipe again!!!!"
"I experimented with different size muffin pans and biscut types. I found the best to use was the jumbo muffin pan (6 per pan) and two country style biscuts per muffin tin."
"I used Pillsbury crescent rolls in a Large muffin pan and whatever cereal I have on hand, not necessarily rice crispies and it was simple, easy & good. It's definitely a keeper."
"Do you measure the broccoli frozen or after cooked? Everyone enjoyed these; would try putting Durkee FF onions on top next time for alittle more flavor."
"I added even more flavoring and they were really bland and dry."
"I substituted mozzarella for the cheddar, since it was what I had in the fridge, and used fresh broccoli, lightly steamed. I also had the larger Grands biscuits which meant less cheese & cereal in the bottoms of the cups (otherwise there would not have been enough room in the cups for filling ~ haha). I don't know what the crispy rice does for the recipe...it wasn't noticeable at all when eating these."
"crisp rice is the same as rice kripys and if freezeing do it after they are cooked"
"I really enjoyed these. Thank you so much for sharing. I didn't have the rice crispies so I omitted them. I will try them next time. What i loved about this was that it was all things I already had in my house. A delicious dinner on the fly! ty"
"I cut the fat in recipe by using reduced-fat biscuits, cheese, and cream soup. Great!"
"to the one who froze these, did you freeze them before or after baking?"
"I am trying to figure out why the cereal...when I made this I replaced two things...the mushroom soup with chicken and the cereal with french fried onions."
"What do you mean by Crisp Rice Cereal?? Rice Crispies??? Good reviews but no one has clairified this................Thanks"
"[quote user="spaswaters"]What is "crisp rice cereal"???? [/quote] A cereal like Rice Crispy's"
"I tried the original version of this recipe and found that there was just far too much starch for my taste and too fatty. So I omitted the rice cereal, the cheese, and the biscuits and used won ton wrappers instead. I sprayed the muffin pan first to keep the won tons from sticking. I used cream of chicken with a tablespoon of yellow curry to the dish. Lastly I made a topping of plain bread crumbs with real butter softened and some shreeded strong Cheddar cheese. My family really liked this much better."
"What is "crisp rice cereal"????"
"Super easy to make! I made two versions due to picky kids; one with broccoli and one without broccoli. I went light on stuffing, I was fearful it would fall out. Next time I will stuff to the MAX."
"I've never heard of crisp rice cereal...is it really rice crispies??"
"These are super easy to make and taste really good. The only thing I changed was the cream of mushroom soup. Due to picky eaters, I had to use cream of broccoli. Still quite tasty."
"This was not only very easy to make, but with a salad was a very quick meal. Not only will I make it again, I also shared it with friends."
"Wonderful...so flavorful, and very easy to put together! I changed nothing in the recipe! Very enjoyable! Thanks for another great recipe!"
"These were really yummy, my family ate them up and I froze some for later as well."
"Crisp rice cereal? I may be having a dumb moment but is that same as like Rice Crispy's?"
