Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Soup #RSC
By Sue Lau | Palatable Pastime
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!
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.
Round 1 – Categories:
Round 1 – Main Ingredients List:
Fresh – Citrus fruits/limes/oranges/grapefruit/tamarind
Cheese/ Gruyere, cream cheese, goat cheese, cheddar
Round 1 – Pantry List:
Elbow macaroni/bow-tie pasta
Orange bell pepper
Jarred roasted red bell peppers
Tropical fruit juice
Tea bags/ lose leaf
Ground Spices/ cinnamon/cardamom/nutmeg/allspice/cloves/ginger/star anise
You know I will be doing all four categories. And so for my Soups/Stews/Chili, we have Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo Soup. Enjoy!
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
- Brown chicken in oil with garlic, salt and black pepper.
- Stir in broccoli florets.
- Add uncooked pasta and cold chicken broth; increase heat to high, and cook, stirring frequently, for ten minutes.
- Reduce heat to low and stir in milk, cream cheese and Parmesan.
- Continue stirring until cheeses melt and blend in.
- 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.
