This is a simple, easy recipe I make on nights when I don't feel like making something that's time consuming or when the weather is cold. I also substitute 3 cans (12 oz.) of chicken if I don't have time to cook the chicken breasts. Some variations yield different flavors, ( substituting cream of chicken for broccoli cheese, etc.) so be adventurous! :)

Directions

  1. Cook chicken and allow to cool. Dice and set aside or use canned chicken and drain.
  2. Mix the soup, sour cream and milk in a mixing bowl with the seasonings listed. Put on stovetop on medium-low and add chicken. Stir occasionally until slightly bubbly. Add the cheese and cook until melted, stirring occasionally. Set temperature to simmer until noodles or rice are done.
  3. Put frozen broccoli in a microwave safe dish and cook, covered until thawed, (usually about 3-5 minutes, depending on microwaves). Drain, if needed, and pour and stir into chicken mixture. (One thing I have done is, I line a glass bowl or dish with about 4 paper towels, and pour the frozen broccoli on the towels. I then cover the dish, and nuke for about 4-6 minutes. When it's done, the broccoli doesn't need draining because the towels absorbed all the liquid from the frozen broccoli).
  4. Prepare egg noodles or rice as directed on packaging.
  5. Serve creamy, cheesy mixture over noodles or rice. I imagine you could serve it over stuffing as well, although I have yet to try it that way. Serve with a salad. Enjoy!

This is a quick easy meal. You can use fresh broccoli (steamed) in the recipe as well. I also used a cream of chicken soup and a cream of broccoli. Very nice. It is definitely a keeper. We are thinking you could take the mixture and make it into a casserole as well. Sub any veggie or add more. Very filling too.
