Chicken Broccoli Alfredo
2-3 cooked chicken breasts, diced.
1-2 cups fresh chopped broccoli, cooked and hot (I steam mine in the microwave)
1 box of Penne pasta (or your favourite pasta)
1/2 cup butter
2 cups heavy cream
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon (1 clove) minced garlic
1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Steam broccoli and chop chicken. Set aside. Boil and drain pasta as directed on package. Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Add minced garlic with the butter and sauté until tender. Add cream, garlic powder, and pepper. Simmer, uncovered, for 10 to 12 minutes or until thick, stirring frequently. When sauce has reached desired consistency, stir in Parmesan cheese. Pour chicken and broccoli in the sauce and stir. Add in Pasta and toss. Sprinkle top with parmesan cheese.
