Chicken and Broccoli Penne

This is a yummy meal that can be put together fast.


  • 2tb butter
  • 2tb flour
  • 3c chicken broth
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • 1tb Italian Dressing Mix
  • 1/2 tb dry minced onion
  • 1/2 tb minced garlic
  • 2-3 cooked, cubed chicken breasts
  • 1-1lb box rotini
  • 1 bag/2 heads of broccoli, cooked


  1. Cook rotini according to package directions. Meanwhile, melt butter over medium high heat.  Add flour and stir, cooking for several minutes until bubbly.
  2. Add chicken broth and continue cooking until the sauce thickens.  Add the cream cheese in chunks, and the seasonings.  Stir occasionally.
  3. Once cream cheese melts, add the chicken breasts, cooked rotini and broccoli.  Stir and heat if needed.

My husband likes the taste of broccoli but not the texture, so I usually puree the broccoli before adding to this recipe.
