This recipe was given to me by a friend of my Mother's and it combines the perfect partners of broccoli and cheese to make broccoli "a star".

I looked up chicken and brocolli without rice as I am eating lower carbs. I am soo glad that I found your recipe! I didn't have any cream of mushroom soup on hand so I used real mushrooms, sautéed with the onions and added Sour cream and cheese to that mixture. We had leftover hot breast (hot wing sauce and garlic on Chicken breast) so I diced that and added it over the brocolli. I omitted the croutons since lowering carbs and added a few shakes of red pepper flakes. It is wonderful! This will be our go to leftover hot breast dish!
