    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!! - 9/21/07

    This was so good! I didn't have everything on hand so I subsituted cream of chkn soup for the cheese soup & I used mixed veggies instead of broccoli. I also used brown rice and I lightly sprinkled the top w/ Italian bread crumbs & cheddar cheese intead of the cracker/butter topping. Family loved it! - 7/6/09

    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. - 3/30/11

    Excellent. I used an additional can of mushroom soup and 4 oz of grated cheddar instead of the cheese soup, and topped with French-fried onions instead of the crackers. - 9/26/07

    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. - 8/26/10

    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. - 6/17/10

    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 :) - 1/13/10

    Very good. I made a roux (using 1% milk) instead of cream of whatever soups and a bit of shredded cheese that I had on-hand. I also used brown rice and fresh broccoli. It was a hit! - 7/28/10

    This is a recipe that I have been making for about a year now, I obtained it by a family friend. The only thing I do differently is 2 cans of broccoli cheddar & 1 can of cheddar cheese soup; also instead of crushed crakers on top, I use crushed croutons (more flavorful). - 9/20/07

    I topped it with whole-wheat crackers and cheddar cheese. I'm trying to find recipes that make broccoli enjoyable for me (I'm not a fan, but I'm trying to be!), and this one is perfect! My husband loves it. I've made it twice so far. - 5/24/08

  • Since I don't like mushrooms, and to make it a bit more healthy, I always add plain Greek yogurt. This is really close to a recipe I have been using for years but have not made for quite a while. I will try it again this week. - 3/21/16

  • Very good! I have been making this for my family for a while now but I like to use cornflakes instead of Ritz. - 11/6/15

  • I used brown rice, reduced salt and fat soups, and put a little cheddar cheese on the top instead of crackers. Remember to season it to taste. I added salt, pepper, onion powder, and garlic powder. I also boiled my chicken instead of cooking it with olive oil- now I have some homemade chicken broth. - 5/25/15
