Recipe Ingredients for Chicken & Veggies Cheesy Pasta

12 oz Cheese 2% Milk
9 thigh, bone and skin removed Chicken, Thigh, Meat Only
8 oz Tomatoes
5 oz Broccoli
0.25 tsp Garlic Powder
0.5 tsp Pepper, Black
1 dash Salt, Table
6 serving Rotini Pasta

Recipe Directions for Chicken & Veggies Cheesy Pasta

  1. Bring water to a boil (while warming up, prep other items) Once at a boil, cook pasta 9-11 minutes (I used whole box=4.5 C pasta) For the last 7 minutes of boil, add 5 oz frozen brocolli.

  2. Season chicken thighs with salt and pepper, cook in saute pan over medium heat for 2 minutes, flip and cover with lid, cook for ten minutes on low-medium heat. Once completely cooked, and cooled, dice into bite size pieces.

  3. In separate sauce pan, cook cherry tomatoes until skin starts to wilt.

  4. Drain pasta and brocolli, return to pot, add in 12oz Velveeta cheese, cut up into squares, 1/4 Tsp garlic powder and 1/4 tsp black pepper. Also throw in diced chicken. Cook over medium heat and stir until cheese melted. Add in tomatoes and lightly mix. Serve warm, I would suggest with garlic bread and wine!
