    My boys and I liked this but my husband didn't. I used a pound of chicken tenders cut up and added a good bit of pepper when they were cooking. I steamed my broccoli before adding it to the mixture and had used fresh broccoli that I had leftover from New Years Eve. I added 8 ounces of shredded velveeta. I thought it was a good, quick weeknight meal.

    Very easy and cheesy recipe. I used fresh broccoli and threw it in with the chicken broth. Thanks for posting.

    This is great stuff, and even the picky child eats it. I do steam the heck out of my broccoli first, just to ensure the kids can't complain/pick it out, and I like the more uniform texture also. Great one!

    I thought this was delicious and easy. We added a little white wine and used Kraft Classic Melts instead of Vevleeta. Yum!

    My husband really liked this (of course, he would have preferred NO broccoli!!) I would suggest steaming the broccoli to your desired tenderness. I steamed it in the microwave for 4 minutes and it could have stood another 2-3 minutes. We will have this again. I know my grandchildren will love the cheesiness. Thanks.
