I made this tonight when I had lots of chicken and broccoli on hand and not much time to fuss. It was so creamy and delicious, and we were all happy to get some greens in. I served it on a bed of rice, but it's also excellent with any type of noodles. It's pretty versatile in the way that if you want it to have an Asian flavour, just add some soy sauce and sesame oil. Something Mexican? Add some taco seasoning. The possibilities with this one-pot dish are endless!
You can use chicken thighs for this, too. Cream of chicken soup works just as well. Enjoy!
