Quick and easy to make...my family LOVED it!
I halved the recipe and substituted chicken stuffing mix for the French bread which gave it more flavor. Needed more moisture too so I added a little more milk and cream of onion soup. I used cheese but don't see the point, I'd like it without. It was okay but nothing to write home about.
Excellent for such a quick and easy recipe. Even my 5 year old who hates broccoli gobbled it up, broccoli and all. To make it healthier I used whole wheat bread, non-fat milk (which worked fine), and omitted the first bit of butter to fry chicken in. Also used cream of chicken and wine soup and used a smidgen of cheese. YUM!
I used ground beef instead of chicken, and fresh broccoli rather than frozen. It was delicious!
substituted 3 additional cups of veggies for 3 cups of the bread, used Pepperidge Farm Sage dressing instead of french bread. Very yummy!
