Reviews for Chicken Broccoli Casserole
"This casserole is THE WORST in the history of cooking!! THICK, salty, and just plain BAAAAAD!"
"I baked mine a little too long (old oven), but it was still tasty! I'm not a huge fan of parmesean cheese, so I used some colby instead. Still great!"
"I think I just ate the best thing I've ever made. I boiled new potatoes with the broccoli and increased the curry to 1whole teaspoon. I made my own cream sauce with butter flour and milk to save on the saltiness of canned soup. I skipped the bread cubes entirely. Oh and I only had the dried parmesan, the kind you sprinkle on pasta and it turned out fabulous!! It's July 3 and my kitchen is a hot mess and so am I, but I will definitely make this in the winter as one of my comfort food casseroles. thank you for this recipe."
"Love this dish and so does my family. I did add a pound of spaghetti noodles :D"
"My family loved it. I used unsalted crackers on top. Worked okay for us. Didn't want to take time to make breadcrumbs."
"I want to take this to a friend. Will it work well to mix it and refrigerate it overnight without baking it?"
"Good, easy recipe. I usually increase the bread cubes, and I have added cooked rice to it also."
"Very good...added one cup milk to soup mixture...definitely needed it to spread on top of veggies...added garlic and onion powder s & p and celery salt...topped with bread that I buttered on both sides and cubed...very tasty...also used frozen peas and corn that I parboiled first....nice change if you do not like broccoli! You can omit the curry...it is still good!"
"My husband and son love this casserole. I added a bit more than the 1/2 teaspoon of curry. My husband said that he would have liked more bread cubes. I simply buttered a slice of white sandwich bread and cut it into cubes. My son is such a picky eater, but this casserole didn't have anything offensive in it. If you have a kid who generally doesn't like broccoli, he/she might like it in this dish. The sauce is not too rich or spicy and there isn't anything in it (like onions) that they will spit out. Husband and son say that this recipe is a keeper."
"Have not had pleasure to make this, yet, ut look fwd. to!"
"I have been making this recipe for years. I do use more curry and I omit the bread crumb topping. Is is a favorite."
"I used English muffins for the bread in this because that's what I had. I thought it was good, and it incorporated ingredients I usually have on hand. Came together pretty easy too!"
"My whole family loved this which is unusual. I added a cup of chopped carrots in with the broccoli and left out the curry powder. I plan to make this often."
"I have been making this recipe for years but the recipe I have calls for 2 cans of soup and one teaspoon of curry. Always great!"
"I love this dish & make it quite often. It's easy to make & I love the touch if curry."
"Very good! But I love curry and Asian so upped it a bit with chopped cashews and about four cloves of chopped garlic. Needed to be creamier, even tho I added about 3 oz of sour cream...would add more next time. Awesome dish I will do again."
"Yummy! Used Ritz crackers for the topping and left the curry in it. Three adults and only one serving left. ;)"
"DELICIOUS! I did omit the curry as well as the butter and I used Italian bread crumbs that I happen to have on hand. Came out wonderful."
"Good! I substituted cheddar for the parmesan and chix seasoning for the curry."
"This recipe was easy to put together. I did make 2 changes; no curry powder and I used panko crumbs. My husband said "this is great, you need to make it often." The one reviewer made a comment regarding "stuffing". I re-read the recipe several times and no where did I see an ingredient as stuffing."
"This was quick, easy and tasty. I skipped the bread & simply sprinkled bread crumbs on top. I also added about 1/4 cup of milk to make it a bit creamier."
"I used golden mushroom soup and added mushrooms. Everyone liked the bread topping I used a tomato basil french bread and omitted the curry."
"My family loves this dish! I love how easy it is to prepare."
"My family liked it very much..I did not use Curry, nor the stuffing.. Instead of stuffing i used crushed Ritz crackers, they said it tasted like an alfredo sauce.."
"I followed this recipe exactly and the flavor was not that impressive. My son said,"Mom if there is one thing I never want you to make again, this is it!" I thought it was very salty tasting from the parmesan cheese or something."
