Reviews forChicken Broccoli Shells
"I'm not a broccoli person so I used spinach. So easy and tasty. I saw the idea of peas, I'll have to try that next time. It's a keeper"
"YUM! I also make these with peas instead of broccoli and add ham and mushrooms with the chicken. Both ways are delicious!!!!"
"My teenage daughter loves these! To her, it's a hand-held meal, and she calls them pasta tacos. I use light Alfredo sauce to lighten them up a bit, and add some diced onion and mushrooms sauteed in garlic to boost the flavor. Definitely a keeper."
"Really easy to make and tastes great."
"What other veggie would be good in this? We don't like broccoli!Can't rate but it says I have to,"
"SO GOOD! Made this for a Packer game and ended up in a cheese coma. The only thing I will say is to either thaw the broccoli or use fresh and cut it into smaller pieces. Also I would a bow tie pasta or something similar but still delicious."
"Hubby really liked this one. I was worried about their not being any sauce to pour over the top but I was pleasantly surprised. DD wouldn't eat it but DS did eat some of it."
