Chicken and Broccoli

I have to make this once a week for my kids. My nieces and nephew request it all the time. You probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry. Great, quick weeknight meal.

How to Make Chicken and Broccoli


  1. Put a pot up to boil for the pasta. Cook pasta in salted water. Cook chicken cutlets in a deep skillet sprayed with cooking spray until browned and cooked through. (You can also use frozen chicken nuggets in place of chicken cutlets. Cook these while pasta is cooking)

  3. Add cooked pasta and broccoil to the skillet and combine with chicken, soup and milk. Add shredded cheddar over top and cover to melt the cheese.
