Super easy, and pretty tasty
Yummy, yummy, yummy! When I'm in a time crunch and want something yummy, this is what I make. This is excellent and easy!
I made this last night and it was pretty good for how easy it was to put together, something much needed in this crazy household! I didn't have a Betty Crocker mix, but I used what I had in a smaller size and it was just fine. I didn't have enough chicken breasts either, but I just used what I had. I also didn't have cheese slices, so I used shredded cheese to just top it and it was fine. I don't do frozen broccoli anymore, just a personal preference, so I used raw and it was good tasting. Only thing was that it was pretty mush after cooking for 30 minutes. When I was putting this together on the stove, I noticed that almost this exact recipe was on the back of the box of potatoes. They suggested putting the broccoli on top so you could take it off about 10 minutes before it was done cooking. I probably wouldn't go that far, but maybe someone else wants to try it that way. Good recipe, Linda!
