    Very simple and very good. My 5 year old eventually ate it (with some coaxing) but my 2 1/2 year old wouldn't really eat it.

    Chicken broccoli bake is delicious and incredibly easy to make. It's one my family makes any time we have the time and we eat it all in one meal. It's a keeper for sure and going in my recipe box.

    I made this dish for my boys (age 4 and 6), and they loved it! I used high fiber egg noodles and 75% low-fat cheddar, and you would never have known. Excellent! Really good leftover too!
