Reviews for Contest-Winning Broccoli Chicken Casserole
"We thoroughly enjoyed this recipe and I definitely plan to make it again. I started by following the recipe, but realized that I only had a 9 x 13 pan and not an 11 x 7. So I added some frozen mixed veggies, a little milk, and some frozen pearl onions. Otherwise I stuck to the recipe. My husband and I both really liked this recipe and the only thing my husband said he would change is to add some french fried onions on top! I also love that I made this recipe, other than baking it, two days ahead of time and refrigerated it. Still turned out delicious. Another great one!"
"This was the worse recipe I have ever made from Taste of Home, I don't know where I went wrong, but it sure sipped through a straw. Will never make it again, stick to what I know is good."
"Similar to a recipe I have had for years. I mix a can of cream soup (chicken or celery), 1/4-1/2 cup milk and 8 oz. Velveeta cut into cubes and I microwave them, stirring every minute or so, until cheese is melted. Stir in cut up chicken, pour into greased pan, layer chopped broccoli on top then the prepared stuffing mix (made with broth). Cover & bake 20 min., uncover and bake 10-15 min. more until stuffing is lightly browned. I sometimes add a 1/4 c. chopped, sauteed onion and some ground sage."
"Very family friendly and quick. Used cream of mushroom soup and baked chicken mixture 15 minutes before adding stuffing. Made stuffing according to package, put on top of chicken , covered with foil (we don't like crunchy stuffing) and baked an additional 30 minutes. Smelled so good we never got around to adding the cheese!"
"Simple and delicious. I like to use smoked chicken or turkey."
"Delicious and easy dinner! I also like its versatility, if you have a particular vegetable or soup on hand, you can switch it up. I had some of my Cheddar Mashed in the freezer, so I layered them in the bottom. I used corn instead of broccoli, well because I like corn better, and condensed chicken soup. I cooked it longer than the directions and didn't add cheese because I didn't want to de-crunchify the stuffing. Next time I make I'm going to try adding onion soup mix to the mixture and top with the cheese before the stuffing. I also think French fried onions on top would be delicious. Thank you for the recipe!??"
"This was really good and easy!! Will definitely make again."
"I have made a very similar casserole for YEARS with the exception of using "raw" bone-in chicken thighs and fresh portions of a broccoli crown & add quartered (or smaller) potatoes-- actually just made to take to some folks at Church who need a bit of help. I like adding small can of sliced mushrooms on top of the soup and use chicken broth to make the stuffing. Grate up Swiss cheese for on top of mushrooms and over stuffing -- probably 2-3 cups total (we like cheese). Obviously, cook longer like 45 (or more) minutes at 350 depending on stove! Also, made without stuffing and served over rice. AND naturally season to your own taste!"
"I liked this recipe but I changed the ingredients and I call my creation stuffing surprise I cut up celery and carrots I saute them in a pan until they're translucent I add canned pees ,and your cut up chicken, cream of celery soup 2 to 3 Can's undiluted don't add water then add your stuffing bake covered for 20 minutes at 350' bake 10 to 15 minutes longer uncovered or until heated through !!!!(STUFFING SURPRISE)????????"
