You can change the servings for this recipe increase or decrease the the ingredients. Such as from 4 to 6 to 8 to 10 etc. By increasing,decreasing the chicken, broccoli, cheese amounts. You can never have enough bacon.
My children have loved this recipe for years. I serve it with jag and everyone who tries it wants the recipe. It is easy and a one pan meal.
