"This was delicious. It tastes a lot like a Broccoli Rice casserole that I make, just with biscuits instead of rice. I used Grands biscuits, not realizing they were too big for this recipe since the can was also 10 oz. Mine overflowed a lot so they were not pretty; good thing I just made them for my family. I would recommend using jumbo muffin cups if you have Grands biscuits."

"I havent made these yet so will just rate a 4 but I wanted to ask........why the rice krispies? what do they do for the taste? also, to HAFJMZ... just buy the cheapie biscuits in the can, break them apart then push into the muffin pan. I used the Big grand biscuits once for a similiar recipe and they weren't as good.........too much bread. good luck!"

I rolled the biscuits out then pressed them into the muffin cups. My husband really liked them. Next time I will try adding some spices though."

"I had a hard time fitting everything into the biscuit in the regular muffing tin. I was afraid that it would end up all over the bottom of my over, but it did not overflow. I think that next time I will use the larger muffin tin to make it easier to fill. These were delicious and easy to make. We enjoyed them as leftovers for lunch the next day as well."

"This was quite tasty!! I did change it up a bit, I used chicken sausage instead of regular chicken, fresh broccoli, and ritz crackers instead of rice krispies. I think the ritz crackers caused it to be a bit more salty, but not so much that it wasn't good. Also, I used 2 packages of chicken sausage which was WAY more than 1 cup, it was enough for 15 cups. I also cooked the chicken sausage and then threw the broccoli, soup, and a bit of chicken broth in the pan and cooked that for a bit to get the broccoli cooked and blend the flavors. I added the cheese to this mixture in the last few minutes. I made these ahead and then popped them in the oven for about 25-30 minutes and they came out fabulously!!"

"I tried the original version of this recipe and found that there was just far too much starch for my taste and too fatty. So I omitted the rice cereal, the cheese, and the biscuits and used won ton wrappers instead. I sprayed the muffin pan first to keep the won tons from sticking. I used cream of chicken with a tablespoon of yellow curry to the dish. Lastly I made a topping of plain bread crumbs with real butter softened and some shreeded strong Cheddar cheese. My family really liked this much better."
