Shh! Don’t tell anyone! This recipe is so simple, but you’d never know it. My husband, who normally doesn’t like chicken, asks for this dish regularly. —Mary Watkins, Little Elm, Texas

"This is some serious complete meal in a bowl comfort food! Great flavor even using reduced fat products. I cooked my chicken for about 4 hours, removed it when I added soup mixture and broccoli, then removed the bones and tore it into pieces after the broccoli was done cooking and added it back into the pot to serve."

"I liked this recipe, and my husband said it was one of his favorites! I made it with chicken breast tenderloins, and used 2-10oz pkgs of broccoli. I did use a little less Italian Seasoning than it called for as a personal preference. Easy and good! Will make again."

"The bones aggravated me. Next time I'm use boneless chicken, but that's just me. It was rich and delicious, and tasted even better the second day! I just skipped the whole "potato" part and served it in bowls, as a soup/stew....yummy."
