Reviews for Chicken Broccoli Shells
"YUM! I also make these with peas instead of broccoli and add ham and mushrooms with the chicken. Both ways are delicious!!!!"
"My teenage daughter loves these! To her, it's a hand-held meal, and she calls them pasta tacos. I use light Alfredo sauce to lighten them up a bit, and add some diced onion and mushrooms sauteed in garlic to boost the flavor. Definitely a keeper."
"Really easy to make and tastes great."
"What other veggie would be good in this? We don't like broccoli!Can't rate but it says I have to,"
"SO GOOD! Made this for a Packer game and ended up in a cheese coma. The only thing I will say is to either thaw the broccoli or use fresh and cut it into smaller pieces. Also I would a bow tie pasta or something similar but still delicious."
"Hubby really liked this one. I was worried about their not being any sauce to pour over the top but I was pleasantly surprised. DD wouldn't eat it but DS did eat some of it."
"This recipe is easy and delicious!! My six year old even said it was his favorite thing I've ever made!! My husband and I loved it as well. We had a busy night of running when I made it so I put it all together and put it in the fridge. I got home, popped it in the oven and it was ready to go! I will definitely put this in my recipe rotation!!"
