Recipe: Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo

This week’s recipe came into fruition when we had a lot of broccoli just wasting away in our crisper so I decided to try and save it. I do not believe wasting or throwing food unless it is not suitable for human consumption. Throwing away food is a total waste of money. I bet you wouldn’t believe what kind of broccoli I used when you look at the photo below for the final product!

Ready? Let’s go!

What you’ll need:

  • Chicken breast
  • Olive oil
  • Garlic
  • Chicken Broth (I used Knorr’s Chicken Stock Cube)
  • Milk (I used evaporated milk)
  • Unsalted butter
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Parmesan Cheese
  • Fusilli Noodles

What you’ll do:

I basically modified the steps for my One Pot Garlic Parmesan Pasta which you can find here. But if you’re feeling kinda lazy, don’t worry, I got you covered!

  • Cook your fusilli noodles and set aside.
  • In a pan, fry until brown your chicken breast then set aside. (I used olive oil in doing this since I will be using a single pan for the sauce.)
  • Add in the garlic.
  • Once that’s done, add in two cups of milk, chicken stock cube and a spoon of unsalted butter. Don’t forget to add in salt and pepper to taste.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Add the broccoli and fusilli noodles then mix it all together.
  • Serve while hot!

If you’re wondering what kind of broccoli I used…It looks so bad. 😛
