"Very good recipe! Next time we will add more broccoli. Hubby also wants to try it with mushrooms and artichoke hearts."

"This was a quick and very delicious recipe....definitely a keeper! I used half and half instead of the heavy cream and rotisserie chicken so it was more shredded than cubed. Served with garlic bread. Delicious!"
"Delicious. Used frozen broccoli and added Italian blend cheese instead of just parmesan cheese"
