  • 1 lb Chicken Breast 2 cups chopped
  • 2 tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 3 ½ cups Chicken Broth Low Sodium
  • 3 cups Chopped Broccoli 2 heads
  • ½ cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 teaspoon Dry Mustard
  • 1 lb Pasta Any variety
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheddar
  • Salt and Pepper to taste


  • Wash the broccoli and chop it into bite sized pieces. Set that aside.
  • In a large pan that has a fitted lid, add the olive oil and chopped chicken breast. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté for 5 minutes until the chicken breasts pieces are browned.
  • Add the chicken broth, heavy cream, and dry mustard to the pan. Stir everything to combine and season again with salt and pepper.
  • Add the pasta to the pan, lower the heat to medium, and stir so most of the pasta is submerged. Cover for five minutes.
  • After five minutes, add the broccoli to the pan and cover again for four more minutes.
  • Add the cheddar to the pan and stir until the cheddar is completely melted. Top with more cheddar if you would like and serve immediately.


  • Frozen broccoli can be substituted for fresh broccoli
  • Do not overcook the chicken when you are sautéing it.  It will cook for another 10 minutes when the pasta is cooking.
  • If you don't have heavy cream, whole milk can be substituted, or you can leave it out and increase the amount of chicken broth.
