Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo

I made this one other time, and I was going to make it for dinner tonight. Then I remembered that Cory had play practice from 5-7, and Jeffrey wouldn't be home until later, and I decided to go with something simple like opening a can of Campbell's Chunky soup to go with the sourdough bread I made today. Now I'm think either we'll have this for dinner tomorrow night when we can all sit down together, or I will try the Indian inspired version with the rice and take it for the potluck on Sabbath.

Campbell's® Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo

From: Campbell's Kitchen
Prep: 10 minutes
Cook: 20 minutes
Serves: 4

  • 1/2 of a 16 ounce package linguine
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen broccoli flowerets
  • 2 tbsp. butter
  • 1 lb. skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) Campbell's® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup (Regular, 98% Fat Free or 25% Less Sodium)
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
  • Prepare the linguine according to the package directions in a 3-quart saucepan. Add the broccoli during the last 4 minutes of the cooking time. Drain the linguine and broccoli well in a colander.
  • Heat the butter in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook until it's well browned, stirring often.
  • Stir the soup, milk, cheese, black pepper and linguine mixture into the skillet. Heat, stirring occasionally, until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Serve with additional Parmesan cheese.

Grilled Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo: Substitute grilled chicken breasts for the skinless, boneless chicken.

Indian-Inspired Tip: Omit the Parmesan cheese. Substitute 1 cup uncooked basmati rice for the linguine. Prepare as directed above. Stir 1 teaspoon curry powder and 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin into the skillet in Step 3. Sprinkle with toasted slivered almonds, if desired.

Asian-Inspired Tip: Omit the Parmesan cheese. Substitute 1 package (6 ounces) rice noodles for the linguine. Prepare as directed above. Stir 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 2 cloves garlic, minced and 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root in to the skillet with the chicken in Step 2.

When heating leftovers in the microwave, add a little milk to get the creaminess back.
