    It's really really good, but watch out the calorie count is insane!

      Delicious! Instead of the almonds I crumbled pork rinds on top. I definitely will be making this again.

        I’m confused by the portion sizes this makes enough for 4 servings but there’s not way a serving weighs 1 oZ it’s way more anyone else experience this or am I missing something?

          Right below the ingredients is a ‘wheel’ you can change your serving size away from a fraction to a whole serving. A whole serving is just over 4 oz.

        I enjoyed this recipe, it was easy to follow, I was able to season the chicken nicely while cooking the broccoli same time, the cheese was Moe experimental but it came out delicious.

          Simple, effective. I swapped cream cheese with Greek yoghurt because that is what I had in the cupboard. I think slightly more watery but yummy and it’s not like I run a restaurant 😂

          Delightful! Will repeat frequently. Made according to recipe but with the addition of a tablespoon of roasted chopped hot red peppers to spice it up a bit. We like hot dishes.

            This is not a 5 star recipe, didn't really like the texture and the broccoli should be cooked separately not for 20 mins in the oven with the chicken!

              You’re supposed to boil it, did you skip that step?

                It was good but needs more flavor. My husband and I paired it with mashed cauliflower. We could not taste the garlic in the dish. I’m planning on making again, but adding more spices and making some bread as a side.

                  This is delicious and super easy. I suggest room temp cream cheese and some whisking before you add broth. Made tortellini for my husband and mashed cauliflower for myself.

                    I am new to this app and trying to figure out if you are able to edit the recipe(s), as in take the broccoli out and have it adjust? I want to make this again without the broccoli but do not want to have to enter each ingredient individually.

                      I think you can go up to the 3 dots at the top and “copy to my foods”; then go to your My Foods section and “edit recipe”.

                        My family LOVED this. I changed a couple of things. I grilled the chicken and served it over Carbonada fettuccini. It was so delicious!!
