"My brother is a bachelor and even though he cooks for just one, he makes awesome full course meals. He got this recipe from a friend and I had to have it! I have taken this to potluck dinners and have been asked for the recipe. Simple comfort food."

    We enjoyed this casserole so much! The swiss cheese is a delicious change from the usual cheddar cheese found in many recipes and it went perfectly with the broccoli and chicken, making a light and creamy sauce. This great recipe is going into my keeper file. Thanks for sharing it!

    I made this for me and my girlfriend for dinner. I was in a rush and still was able to make it and eat it before she left for work. I followed the recipie exactly and it was plenty for the two of us. Great recipe!


<p>I have two teenage children and am very happily married. We live in Southern, Ontario.&nbsp; <br /><br />I live to cook and just love to putter around the kitchen. I enjoy reading all kinds of cookbooks which I borrow from the library or buy second hand. I really like Taste of Home magazine, because the recipes are from ordinary people and aren't too complicated. I also like to read community or church cookbooks because you know that the recipe must be special for someone to share it. <br /><br />I discovered RecipeZaar because it was mentioned by someone in a cooking I am hooked. I think it is so helpful to read the reviews and suggestions from others who have tried recipes before me. <br /><br />I always thought of myself as a pretty good cook, but I am learning so much since I have joined RecipeZaar. I really appreciate the ideas and feed back that everyone provides.</p> 114172283"
