Ingredients

cost per recipe: $8.08

  • 8 ounces uncooked linguine or whole wheat linguine
  • 1 cup fresh or frozen broccoli florets
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/4 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Cream of Mushroom Soup or 98% Fat Free Cream of Mushroom Soup or Healthy Request® Cream of Mushroom Soup
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  • Tips

    • Grilled Chicken & Broccoli Alfredo: Substitute grilled chicken breasts for the skinless, boneless chicken.
    • Shrimp & Broccoli Alfredo: Substitute 1 pound fresh extra large shrimp, shelled and deveined for the chicken. Cook as directed for the chicken above until the shrimp are cooked through.
    • Spanish-Inspired Tip: Reduce the chicken to 1/2 pound and omit the Parmesan cheese. Prepare as directed above. Stir 1/2 pound peeled cooked shrimp, 1/4 pound chorizo or ham, diced and 1 teaspoon paprika into the soup mixture.
    • Indian-Inspired Tip: Omit the Parmesan cheese. Substitute 3 cups cooked basmati rice and 3/4 cup cooked broccoli florets for the linguine and uncooked broccoli.  Stir 1 teaspoon curry powder and 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin in the skillet with the chicken. Sprinkle with toasted slivered almonds, if desired.
    • Asian-Inspired Tip: Omit the Parmesan cheese. Substitute 1 package (6 ounces) rice noodles for the linguine. Prepare as directed above. Stir 1 tablespoon soy sauce, 2 cloves garlic, minced and 2 teaspoons minced fresh ginger root in the skillet and cook with the chicken
    • Easy Substitution: You can substitute spaghetti or fettuccine for the linguine in this recipe.
    • Make more for a crowd!  Use 1 pound linguine, 2 cups broccoli, 3 tablespoons butter, 1 3/4 pounds chicken, one 22.6-ounce can soup, 1 1/4 cups milk  and 1 cup cheese.  Cook as shown above but use a 6-quart saucepot.
  • Step 1

    Prepare the linguine according to the package directions in a 3-quart saucepan. Add the broccoli during the last 4 minutes of the cooking time. Drain the linguine mixture well in a colander.

  • Step 2

    Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.  Season the chicken with salt and pepper.  Add the chicken and cook until well browned and done, stirring often.

  • Step 3

    Stir the soup, milk, cheese and linguine mixture in the skillet and cook until the mixture is hot and bubbling, stirring occasionally.  Season to taste and serve with additional Parmesan cheese.

    I pinned this sometime ago and use this dish once a month. It is easy to make and easy to teach your kids to make. Especially the ones going to college. We added mushrooms and threaded swiss cheese to the top. My family loves it.

  • This was DELICIOUS and easy to do,

    What a yummy, quick dinner. I used frozen broccoli (2 cups as we love the veggies) and cream of mushroom soup with roasted garlic (the best Campbell's makes!). I will definitely make it again. I will also substitute shrimp for a twist on this quick dinner.

  • Absolutely Delicious

    This is a family favorite. Sometimes we leave out the chicken and broccoli and just make the alfredo sauce. It is absolutely delicious.

  • Kids Loved It !!!

    Both of my grandson's loved this recipe! I can never get them to agree on a same meal because if one likes it the other one doesn't. With this meal, I just sat back and watched to my enjoyment that they cleaned their plates. The fussy one said it smelled great and tasted even better...Success!!! Thank you Campbell's
