    1. Greta, I remade this recipe again last night and added the changes to the recipe.

      Changes: I cut the chicken into bite size pieces and cooked the dish for 40 minutes. It was perfect! You don’t want the broccoli to be over cooked or the chicken under cooked. I recommend chicken both after 30 minutes of baking.
