Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo Bake

Day 3 of my 8 week #PantryChallenge.

Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo Bake with Garlic Bread. I wasn’t allowed to drink milk growing up, so I rarely have it in the fridge. Powdered milk to the rescue! I used the trimmings and tenderloins from the bone-in chicken breasts I used to make yesterday’s Chicken sandwiches. I also used the bones and skin to make the broth in my slow cooker.

  • 8 oz. Linguine Pasta
  • 2 cups Frozen Broccoli
  • 1 cup Frozen Corn
  • 3 cups Chicken Breast; cubed
  • 1/2 cup Butter
  • 4 cloves Garlic; finely minced
  • 1 small Onion; minced
  • 1 1/2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 3 Tablespoons Powdered Milk
  • 1 1/2 Tablespoons Italian Herbs
  • 1 teaspoon Smoked Paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes
  • 1 Tablespoon Garlic Powder
  • 4 oz. Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 cup Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan Cheese
  • 3 cups Mozzarella Cheese; divided
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter; melted
  • 1 cup Italian Breadcrumbs
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

  1. Bring a pot of liberally salted water to a boil and add the pasta. Cook until almost al dente, about 6 minutes, then drain and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat a dutch oven over medium-high heat and add the chicken, butter, onions and garlic. Sauté until the onions are tender.
  3. In a bowl, combine the chicken broth and powdered milk, then slowly mix the mixture into the dutch oven. Add in the herbs, seasonings, cream cheese, cheddar, parmesan, 1 cup mozzarella, broccoli, corn and pasta. Stir until all the ingredients are combined, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. Pour into a baking dish, then top with the remaining mozzarella. Combine the melted butter and breadcrumbs, then sprinkle it over the cheese and cover with foil.
  5. Preheat oven to 400°F.
  6. Bake for 20 minutes, then uncover and bake an additional 5 minutes or until the the edges of the pan are bubbling and the breadcrumbs are golden brown.
  7. Enjoy!
