To be honest, some recipes just scare me. This was one of them. I love broccoli, egg noodles and chicken. The other ingredients I was a little skeptical on if they would taste well together in the same dish or if we were going to be getting take-out somewhere again.
I was very pleasantly surprised and my husband was too. He rarely eats anything with broccoli or any green vegetable in it. When doing the dishes later, I was so happy to find that he didn't even push his broccoli aside, he ate them all!! Another fantastic success! Now if I could just find something to coat asparagus in..
Chicken, Broccoli and Noodle Supreme
Adapted from: Recipezaar
1 lb chicken breast, cubed
3 cups uncooked egg noodles
2 cups fresh broccoli florets
1 can cream of chicken soup (10 oz)
1/2 cup sour cream
1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Boil uncooked, cubed chicken pieces on medium-high heat in 80% water 20% chicken broth. Once boiling, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer covered for about 15-20 minutes or until chicken is cooked throughout.
After chicken is simmering, place a pot on stove to boil egg noodles in water (add a little extra for the broccoli in later step). In the last 5 minutes of cooking time, or once the noodles begin to loose their "stiffness" add the broccoli to the pot and cook another 5 minutes. Be sure to not over-cook the noodles though.
Drain the pot with noodles and broccoli and return to stove. Place on medium heat and add chicken cubes, sour cream, parmesan, soup, and pepper. Mix well and cook a bit longer until warmed.
