"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 :)"
"Love this casserole.I had leftover chicken andccooked broccoli in the fridge.I added a shallot and some garlic,light Becel instead of butter.Your sauce is easy and so much better than a can of soup. Will keep this one handy.Thanks for posting;I made this for WT4. Rita"
"This was a good basic casserole. I made a few changes: baked chicken with blackened seasonings and freshly steamed broccoli. I did not freeze this, but it's nice to know that I can. Thanks Nick's Mom! Roxygirl"
"Great, simple, go to recipe--especially for leftovers. I diced up chicken from a Rotisserie Chicken from the night before. Great way to use up all the extra chicken and all the ingredients are things usually in a pantry. Thanks!"
"The only comment I have is that when made this it seemed a little dry. Love the combination of the ingredients and will try again but will make more sauce. The only variation I had was that I used whole wheat noodles. Made for ZWT6 Voracious Vagabonds."
