I’m very amateur at making food and Ive made this at least 3 times and it’s always turned out perfect. Not sure why the negative reviews.
This recipe was wonderful and very filling. I seasoned the chicken with poultry seasoning and pepper. Added some paprika to the sauce. And yes, you slowly heat up milk to a gentle boil to make a sauce. I think some people just don't know how to cook and blame the recipe!
I don’t know if it’s my failings as a chef, but this was horrible. Also, “boiling” the milk is the best way to burn it and make the entire dish inedible.
Despite being an enormous lover of all things Broccoli, Rice and Chicken... it was just meh. Mushy, not a lot of flavor. Made recipe exactly as written and it did indeed look exactly like photo - but needed a TON of hot sauce and black pepper and salt just to get it edible. Love Eating Well, just not this recipe.. needs some work.
I made it exactly as written, and it was VERY bland. I'd definitely have to tweak this to make it again - would most likely find another recipe, as I am always looking for chicken/broccoli combos.
Horrible, literally couldn’t eat it. Followed the recipe other than rice. I used ten ounces instead of 18 and it was way too thick. Don’t waste your money on this horrible dish.
The flavor was bland and the texture was unpleasantly mushy. Needs something other than 1/2 cup of fried onions to add texture.
Yes, yes, yes! Could make this recipe a thousand times over.
My family and I really enjoyed this dish! I did make a couple of changes though. Instead of extra sharp cheddar I used Cabot seriously sharp white sharp cheese, and I cooked up 3 lbs of chicken (for left overs). I also used quinoa and brown rice instead of just brown rice (this is what I had on hand). Very good and will definitely make again!
