Great recipe. I used string beans instead of broccoli that's what I had on hand. Cream of chicken soup and grated cheddar cheese. Whole wheat ritz. I think I will make it again but get low sodium cream soup and delete butter as many have suggested. It is a good recipe for leftover chicken and veg Submitted by:

This was delicious! I left out the butter and used fat free cream of chicken soup and broccoli cheddar soup. My 6yr was in-love with this recipe! Submitted by:

This was just okay, but I went off the recipe, so that could be it. I subbed in two cans of condensed chicken soup because I don't like mushrooms and couldn't find light cheese soup. I also used brown rice and saltines because I had those on hand and sprinkled in grated Parmesan. Skipped butter too. Submitted by:

I was out of brown rice; otherwise would have used it. I used low-fat soups mixed with a cup of organic veggie stock, low sodium crackers. Added pepper. Easy & tasty recipe! (made this again today: used 1 can broc/1 can chicken soup, stirred in 1 cup shredded old cheddar; panko made crunchy top)! Submitted by:

I do the same thing that ZGirl21 does, if you really want the flavor of the butter on top, use the " I cant believe its not butter" spray-- O calories!! You can also add different veggies or use whole grain pasta instead for different options. 1 of the only healthy meals I get my hubby to eat,lol. Submitted by:

I made this by cubing and boiling the chicken with the broccoli, rice and cans of Cream of Mushroom/Cream of Celery. I put American cheese on top with the Ritz crackers, margarine, garlic salt, garlic powder, pepper, and grated Parmesan. I would omit the margarine next time. YUM!!!! Submitted by:

This was delicious. I used brown rice, reduced sodium soups and used wheat Ritz crackers. Turned out great, the whole family loved it!! I used a bag of mixed cauliflower and broccoli since that's what I had in the freezer. Submitted by:

We're vegetarian, so I omitted the chicken and replaced it with butter beans. We didn't have cheddar cheese soup. I replaced it with 1.5 c of shredded cheddar & some veggie broth. I omitted the topping to save calories. It turned out great! Next time, I'll try nonfat sour cream instead of broth. Submitted by:

This is so yummy! It's a regular now in our house. I used brown rice, instead of white, shredded the chicken, and sprinkled fat free shredded cheese on top instead of ritz. Delicious and very filling. Submitted by:

This casserole was very delicious! I used fresh broccoli and substituted cream of chicken (fat free) for the cheddar cheese soup. I added a little cheddar cheese on top of the casserole after taking it out of the oven. Submitted by:

We really enjoyed this recipe, but would have preferred that the topping be just the dried crackers rather than mixed with butter - saves on the calories & fat, too :) Submitted by:

Very Good. You can save yourself some fat by using half the butter/margarine in the cracker topping. It reheats very well also. Submitted by:

Pretty good caserole. I used reduced fat cheddar cheese and 1/2 soup can of fat free half and half. My husband liked it a lot. I also used reduced fat Ritz but they didn't brown like they would if they had butter with them. Submitted by:

This is a great meal but could be made SO much healthier! Use long grain brown rice instead of instant white, low fat or fat free soups, whole wheat crackers and omit the butter entirely (the crackers will still brown well). This will save you 10 fat grams and about 120 calories per serving!! Submitted by:
