Reviews forCreamy Chicken & Broccoli Stew
"This was really good! My husband, however, didn't like the flavor. I thought the Italian dressing added a really interesting taste. I've had plenty of chicken soups, but never one that tasted quite like this."
"Very good and easy to make. I served over rice."
"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 love this recipe, my roommate and I eat it at least once a month"
"Ahhhh, yet another chicken/Broccoli dish. We love this. I use white potatoes instead of red, and fresh broccoli crowns. Oh YUM!"
