Perfect meal for a weeknight since this comes together in a snap. Absolutely delicious! You can check out my blog at: http://imapretendchef.blogspot.com/2011/02/campbells-chicken-and-broccoli-alfredo.html
This is a wonderful recipe. I spiced up the chicken with salt, pepper and garlic powder before I cooked it. I also did salt and garlic powder to the final meal before I served it as well. I am not a huge broccoli fan but I will double the amount next time because it seemed to little and it was quite good. Will do this recipe again. Husband rated it a solid 8 but I give it a 9 because of the taste and ease to prepare.
This is a great tasting and super fast recipe. I had it on the table for the first time in about 20 minutes flat, with time to eat before baseball games. All the kids loved it, and now everyone's asking for the recipe. Perfect for busy family weeknights.
