1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
2 tablespoons butter
2 cups water
2 cups small shells pasta (or pasta of your choice)
1-1/2 cups frozen broccoli florets
1/2 cup milk
12 ounces processed cheese (Velveeta), cut into cubes
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
Salt to taste
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
3/4 cup sour cream
1. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, cook chicken in butter until meat is no longer pink. Add the water and bring to a boil; stir in the pasta. Reduce heat to medium; cover with a tight-fitting lid and simmer for 10 minutes. Add the broccoli florets; cover and simmer an additional 5 minutes or until the broccoli and pasta are tender and just a small amount of water remains in the skillet.
2. Stir in the milk, cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper, stirring frequently until the cheese is melted. Remove from the heat and stir in sour cream. Let stand 5 to 10 minutes before serving. Makes 6 servings.
