Ready, Set, Cook! We are challenging each other in one of my favorite cooking groups, to create recipes using a restricted ingredients list (and nothing that is not on the ingredients list) and then have a face-off of recipes among friends. Sound like fun? It is!

We’ve been playing since our mob was encapsulated inside the community at the old Recipezaar. After the forums there went *kaput* we found new digs elsewhere.

All right  Sparky, here’s the deal!

Alright sparky heres the deal. If ya want to court the little lady you gotta br a straight shooter. Do ya got it?

Divided into three rounds. May submit up to one recipe per category.

Must use at least one  thing from the mains list, and as many from the pantry list, but nothing else.

Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Soup

  • 1 pound boneless chicken breast,  diced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • salt and black pepper  to taste
  • 4 ounces fresh broccoli florets
  • 6 ounces Barilla Pasta Pronto elbow macaroni, uncooked (don’t use a generic brand as it doesn’t cook the same)
  • 1-1/2 cups chicken broth (room temperature)
  • 2 cups milk
  • 10 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/2 cup shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. Brown chicken in oil with garlic, salt and black pepper.
  2. Stir in broccoli florets.
  3. Add  uncooked pasta and cold chicken  broth; increase heat to high, and cook, stirring frequently,   for ten minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to low and stir in milk, cream cheese and Parmesan.
  5. Continue stirring  until cheeses melt and blend in.
  6. Serve immediately; it will thicken  more upon standing so if you do  not serve it at once, you might need to add a little milk or water to adjust consistency.

  1. This RSC soup is a real treat, Sue. I halved the recipe for 2 of us & “made it my own” in small ways. I used garlic mellowed by roasting (dbl the amt) & no salt but a fairly generous amt of lemon pepper we esp like w/broccoli & chicken. I was a bit unsure about the pasta since I’ve mostly found elbow macaroni here to be poor quality & a flimsy imitation of the real thing. So I opted to use fusilli instead & broke it into small pieces for better cooking efficiency. I served your soup w/garlic buttered baguette bread we could tear in chunks & dip in the soup. Like most good quality soups, this works well as a starter course or a soup/salad meal. It ticked all my boxes. Yum!
