Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo

Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo

There’s one vegetable that my kids will always eat, and that’s broccoli. Other veggies can be hit and miss, but broccoli never fails to entice all three of my children. I don’t really know why that is, and frankly I don’t really care, I’m just happy they actually like something so healthy.  Because of my kids’ love of this nutritious green plant, I’m constantly on the hunt for new broccoli recipes.  That’s why I jumped on the chance to make this Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo recipe from the Cook with Campbell’s site for my first post as a Campbell’s ambassador.

Yes, that’s right! I’m now officially a blogger ambassador for Campbell’s!  Long before I started this food blog, when I was newly married and completely bewildered about cooking, the recipes on Campbell’s website were a lifesaver for me.  I remember making their Shortcut Chicken a la King recipe, and I still recall Tony’s enthusiastic compliments about the fantastic meal I made. I tried more and more recipes from Campbell’s after that, and every one was well-received by my family. Simple to make, easy to love is Campbell’s motto, and it’s certainly been true in my experience.

This particular recipe is not only very simple, it’s also really good for you. I actually used regular Cream of Chicken soup because that’s what I had on hand, but if you use the low fat version, it’s quite low in calories for a pasta dish, with only 440 calories per serving. Plus, it has a full serving a vegetables, and is a good source of protein, calcium, and fiber.

Broccoli and Pasta

I like that you cook the pasta and broccoli together, to save time (I use this method a lot in my cooking).  Then you just throw all the ingredients together in one skillet, and you’re done.

The cream of chicken soup gave the sauce a beautiful velvety texture. I really liked the sundried tomatoes and fresh basil as well. It made the dish a little more sophisticated without adding a lot of work.  I should really use sundried tomatoes more often, they’re so good.


And the kids…loved it!  Was there ever any doubt? Broccoli for the win!

Here’s the recipe, originally from Cook with Campbell’s:
