In the Kitchen with Jason: Corkscrew Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo

This meal was very delicious. I enjoyed the bow tie pasta as it is a type of noodle we don't eat often. This recipe came from the cookbook, Eat What You Love, which contains many delicious recipes. I recommend picking up a copy for your house right now.
Ingredients
  • 1 box uncooked bow tie pasta
  • 1 head of broccoli, chopped into small yummy pieces
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 Tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan Cheese
  • 2 cups, cooked and chopped boneless skinless chicken 
Directions
  • Cook the pasta according to the package directions.
  • Bring a medium sauce pan with water in it to a boil.
  • Add the broccoli to the boiling water.
  • Three minutes later, remove the water from the broccoli.
  • In another medium saucepan, whisk together cornstarch, broth, cream cheese, garlic powder, and black pepper.
  • Over medium heat, bring to a boil.
  • Cook for about 4 minutes once it starts boiling.
  • Add the Parmesan and cook for another 2 minutes.
  • In a large bowl, combine the cooked pasta, broccoli, chicken and sauce.
  • Serve in bowls or on wide plates.
If you would like, extra broccoli and extra chicken would not ruin this recipe. If anything, it will make it even better.

Please enjoy!
