  • Feel free to add other vegetables like bell peppers or mushrooms for extra flavor and nutrition.
  • If the sauce becomes too thick, you can thin it out with a little extra milk or chicken broth.

  • Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.
  • Reheat the Chicken Broccoli Ziti in the microwave or on the stovetop with a splash of milk to keep it creamy.
