Ingredients

2 teaspoons
oil
1 1⁄4 cups
water
1 teaspoon
chicken bouillon
1 can
(10.5 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup
1 pound
boneless, skinless chicken breast (2-3 halves)
1 teaspoon
pepper
2 cloves
garlic, minced or 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 cups
small shell pasta, uncooked
2 1⁄2 cups
broccoli, chopped (fresh or frozen)
1 cup
(4 ounces) cheddar cheese, shredded

Directions

  1. Cut chicken breast into bite sized pieces. Sauté pieces in oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat (350 degrees in an electric skillet) until lightly browned, 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Add water, bouillon, soup, pepper and garlic to skillet.Stir until smooth. Add pasta and broccoli.
  3. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 15 - 20 minutes or until pasta is tender. Add a small amount of water near end of cooking if needed to prevent sticking.
  4. Add cheese during last two minutes of cooking. 
  5. Refrigerate leftovers within 2 hours.

Notes

  • Try whole grain pasta for more fiber.
  • Best served immediately. Reheated broccoli changes color and might have a less pleasant taste.
