I really liked this recipe, although I admit I fudged it a bit. For the carnivores in the family, I used only one pound (16 oz. package) of broccoli and added one pound of chicken breast meat instead. I used breast tenderloin, but you could easily use thigh meat or even leftover chicken or turkey if at hand. If using fresh chicken, saute the meat in margarine or butter with a little sea salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Also, I pre-cooked the broccoli according to microwave directions for 5 minutes before adding to remaining ingredients. (I was really glad I did. The broccoli was perfect and would have been way too cruchy without pre-cooking.) Soup and cheeses blended perfectly for one of the best tasting sauces I've had in awhile. The only faux pas I made was assuming that phyllo pastry was the same as "puff" pastry. I don't think it is so that was an interesting twist. Family loved the meal though, and we'll definitely make it again. Thanks Kraft for inspiring me!

It tasted good, but it was very watery. I wouldn't suggest baking it longer though, as the crust would get too brown.

This wasn't my favorite flavor combo. It took longer than 30 minutes to bake. I like the idea of using the pastry on top of a broccoli casserole, but I will probably use it with a different recipe next time.

I used fresh broccoli, cooked cubed chicken breasts, all of the cream cheese, added cooked white rice & used Fillo dough on top (which is a bit difficult to use), with melted butter instead of the egg. It was good. All but my 8 yr. old liked it. The cream cheese added a bit of spice/tang flavor to it that he didn't like. Next time I will cook the broccoli before adding it, will use pie dough for the crust & use plain cream cheese...in all it was good & I will be making it again.

Loved this I added 2 Cups of Faita Style Chicken cut-up and a little Sour cream to make it a one-dish meal. Guarantee you'll love this and make it quite often.

Very easy to make but was a little bland. I used frozen pie crust and a largish pie pan and it worked well. Next time would add more flavor, maybe cubed chicken and pimento or some extra spice. Also, less water (or drain the broccoli better).

it was the hit of the dinner!!! Everyone loved it and it was so easy to make!!!! I especially like that you could prepare it ahead of time and then put it in the oven when you were ready for it.

I only used one bag of broccoli and added two cooked chicken breasts (cut up). It was very yummy!!
