This is one of our favorites! I make it in one 8x8 dish. I like to add a little garlic with the mushrooms and onions, and some italian seasoning, along with salt & pepper. If we've got shredded cheese, I usually put some of that on top before the crescent rolls go on. I make this for my fiance and me and there are leftovers for lunch tomorrow :-)

I found this recipe to be quick, cheap and easy. As suggested I used the rotisserie chicken which saved a lot of time. I also added a can of cream of mushroom soup to the broccoli and cheese mixture which helped to keep the chicken moist while in the oven. Threw some garlic in with the mushroom and onion mixture because everything is better with garlic. I also sprinkled grated colbie jack cheese on top of the chicken layer. It was very delicious!

I always use rotisserie chicken for this kind of recipe and it works great. I like the ones from Costco or Sams but others will work fine. You can pull the meat off and even freeze what you don't use for later use. I added some cheddar cheese, Parmessan, garlic and scallions as others suggested. So easy and fast and yummy.

Found the recipe needed salt to bring out the flavor in the ricotta cheese; plus it could have had more cheese flavor with the cheese sauce. With a few minor additions, I will definitely make this again.

Made this tonight with some changes based on the previous reviews. I browned the chicken pieces in a pan with the onion, garlic, and some Mrs. Dash. I used two of the broccoli and cheese packages with two thirds cup of ricotta cheese. I added a quarter cup of shredded cheddar. I mixed it all together and put it in a pie plate. I sprinkled the top with parmesan cheese and I topped it with puff pastry that had been brushed with egg wash. I baked it at 350 degrees for half an hour and browned the top at the end. It was delicious. My very PICKY family gobbled it up. Highly recommend. With the changes it was not bland at all.

The basic concept here is excellent, but we found it very, very bland. I would definitely recommend that you taste your broccoli and cheese for seasoning prior to putting it all together. Next time, I will definitely add some pepper or possibly a few dashes of tobasco. I also added a few cloves of minced garlic to the onion/mushroom mixture before sauteing. I used the reduced fat crescent rolls and it worked out fine. Will definitely make again but needs some seasoning.

I tweaked this recipe because I din't have mushrooms, I used minced garlic instead. Really added flavor. Also cooked in a 13x9 pan and it came out great. Next time I do it I don't think I'll use so much garlic(we'll see, my husband LOVESSS garlic!)

I doubled this recipe and used a 13x9x2 pan. It came out great. Very easy and quick.
