Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this for the third time tonight, and it was SUPERB, after my second tweaking of the recipe. I made this for the third time tonight, and it was SUPERB, after my second tweaking of the recipe. Tonight I subbed pre-cooked broccoli florets for the chopped, cut back on the chicken a bit, replaced almost 1/2 of the broth with water, added some chopped bell pepper and onion. The biggest change was that I used mostly shredded sharp Cheddar cheese and enough slices of Kraft American Cheese Singles to come up to the appropriate weight for the Velveeta (We don’t eat it, as it is too salty.) YUM, YUM, YUM.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The recipe calls for 2 cups of macaroni, then has 8oz in parenthesis. The recipe calls for 2 cups of macaroni, then has 8oz in parenthesis. I used 2 cups/16 ounces, and it was perfect. I do wish that I had put the broccoli in the last few minutes of the pasta cooking time though, I like it a bit more tender than it was just adding it at the end with the Velveeta. Overall good consistency and cheesiness, sauteed with onions and spices the flavor was spot on, it was a great hit with the family!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is an evaluation by my Culinary Arts II class. This is an evaluation by my Culinary Arts II class. Their products did not look all the same, but they enjoyed the recipe. Here are their comments: Kitchen 4: It only took us about 30 minutes to make this recipe. It was very thick in texture and a little dry, but we liked the taste of it. Kitchen 7: It was easy to fix. IT was really cheesy adn thick and kind of salty. Overall it was delicious.

I didn't have any elbow macaroni on hand, so I used rigatoni. The end result was great, but it took a lot longer to make. I also added extra cheese because my family loves it so much. The kids and my husband all helped themselves to seconds and I will definately make it again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My husband looooooooves this recipe! My husband looooooooves this recipe! I tried it once, and the rest is history. In addition, I've also added a little sharp shredded cheese to give it that extra cheesiness. Because he likes broccoli, I add the entire small packet of broccoli. Its a very quick and cool dish. Great for "the meat and potatoes" man.

I used cooking spray, bouillon cubes for making broth, added some chopped onion when added broth and used tri colored pasta instead of macaroni. It was really good and didnt last long, kid and hubby gobbled it up. Only took 1 bowl and each of us was very full.

Everything is done in one pan, so there is no extra pots or pans to clean afterward. This is a good starter for kids learning to cook with adult supervision.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I've been making this recipe for years. I've been making this recipe for years. It's always a hit and makes enough for a crowd. The only thing I do differently is stir in a little water (1/2 cup or so) with the chicken. One can of broth isn't quite enough to get the macaroni tender.
