This was THE BEST chicken/broccoli/noodle casserole I've ever made or eaten!Muenster cheese is one my favorites, so just had to try it, and so glad I did!! I made just a few very minor changes due to what I had on hand. Went to fill my 3/4 measuring cup with milk, and ran out about halfway! So filled it the rest of the way with heavy cream. Used a shallot instead of an onion, and chicken boullion instead of broth. (Still added more salt, though.) Used 2 whole chicken breasts, diced and cooked, added 1 small can of mushrooms (drained), and added parsley to the top for extra color. It was HEAVEN!!! (Baked at 350 for 23 minutes.) What a keeper!! Thanks so much!! :) Made for the ZWT4

Wow, so simple and yet so tasty! I changed it a little due to what I had on hand - I used onion powder instead of the onions, fresh chopped broccoli instead of frozen, and a combo of jack and cheddar cheeses instead of muenster (never tried that cheese, but I am curious now). I also just pan fried some chopped up chicken, which worked fine as well. I accidentally mixed the noodles, chicken and broccoli instead of layering, but I think it didn't make too much difference. I love that this recipe doesn't use a can of soup! Will definitely use this recipe again, thanks for posting!

Excellent. The flavors went so well together. First time using muenster cheese and we really enjoyed it. I did add a little extra chicken broth and some garlic and used whole wheat noodles, but other than that stuck to the recipe. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT #6 :)
