    Great, easy, tasty recipe! I don't eat carbs for the evening meal and have a hard time finding meals that are easy, tasty, and filling--this totally fits the bill! I used lowfat cream of chicken and fresh steamed broccoli, and added onion and parsley to the water when boiling the chicken. New fave! - 2/12/08

    Boiling Chicken will never cease to confuse me. lol.
    Now, BROIL or bake the chicken and you are adding some grilled flavor, boil it and you are just making rubber cubes. That being said, this recipe (minus boiling the chicken) was super easy and yummy and just what I needed on a cold snowy day. :) - 2/3/11

    YUM! I had to make a couple of modifications based upon what we had in the house: used 98%FF Cream of Broccoli and 1/2 shredded mexican blend cheese and 1/2 shredded mozzarella cheese. Served it over brown rice. DELICIOUS and SIMPLE! We will be having this again, no doubt. Thanks! - 3/5/08

    Fantastic! I'm not a big fan of recipes that are too easy...usually they are tasteless, so I was reluctant...but it's very tasty. I seasoned the chicken, cooked it in the oven, and used fresh broccoli, and it was delish. Thanks for sharing =) - 9/25/07

    This was very tasty and simple to make. We made a minor substitution - 98% fat free cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom soup. Next time will stir the cheese into the mixture, as it clumped on top. Will definitely have this again! - 3/5/08

    This was a quick, easy and filling idea for dinner. I used precooked chicken and substituted fat-free sour cream for the mayo (it was what I had on hand.) It was a tad bland for me, so I may add some spices next time, but it's a great time-saver to add to my weekly rotation. Thanks for the idea. - 11/14/08

    So good! I used precooked diced chicken because I was short on time, and cream of chicken soup instead of cream of broccoli (my husband was afraid it would be way too broccoli-y for his taste) and it was a hit all around. My daughter even liked it, and she's SO picky! - 3/11/08
