"We loved this recipe. It was great served over brown rice. The casserole was easy to make and then I just had to make the rice for a complete meal."

"Used sour cream instead of mayo!!! AWESOME!!!! When I have some mayo I will try it that way also to compare. So great a little bit more work than I usually will put in (with 5 kids and a dog) but well worth it! I will definitely make this again! :)"

"We had this with rice. I used onion powder instead of the onion & I didn't have a bay leaf. Also, you may need to let the dish stand for 5 min. after cooking so the water from the chicken & broc will absorb. Love this dish!"
