    The best thing about this recipe is it's fast and easy. Make sure you season your chicken before cooking it otherwise it will be bland. I added 2 oz. more cheese and a little bit of bouillon powder to the chicken broth. I also used frozen broccoli florets that I thawed out. Which required very little chopping. Next time I want to try adding a can of cream of mushroom soup and see how well that works. This is similar to another recipe I've made for years "Broccoli and Chicken Casserole", but it's a bit more involved and of course more tasty. But when you need a fast and somewhat tasty meal this one is it.
