      Loved the cream cheese chive sauce in this dish! It was easy and sooo good! I can think of all sorts of variations on this dish. Manicotti noodles can be a challenge to work with. I think I'd use lasagna noodles and layer the ingredients or I could put this over egg noodles or over rice. I tried this dish on two guys painting the outside of our cottage. They sincerely said that they would be guinea pigs for me any time I wanted to cook. DH enjoyed this one too. We're not pimento or bell pepper fans, so I carmelized some onion to use in the place of these ingredients. Make sure your chicken and brocolli are chopped fairly small.

      This is a delicious meal. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because of how time consuming it is to fill the shells, otherwise I'd make it much more often.

      I have never ate nor cooked manicotti before, so this was a first for me the whole way around. I love the idea of the cream cheese, which seemed like a simple additive. My husband absolutely loved it, but to me seemed a little dry (remember, i've never had it before) He assured me that is what the texture is supposed to me. But either way, the taste was delicious. Will be making again! Thanks for the great recipe!
