Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Pasta 5 0 5 4

A great way to use up leftover cooked chicken, or simply grab a hot chicken on the way home from work and enjoy a one-pot fuss-free recipe that cooks relatively ‘fast’ in your slow cooker 😊

  • Prep: 15 mins
  • Cook: 2 hrs 20 mins
  • 15 mins

    2 hrs 20 mins

    2 hrs 35 mins

  • Yields: 5


1 x 400g can of condensed cream of chicken soup (no water added)

300ml cooking cream

1tsp cracked black pepper

1T wholegrain seeded mustard

1 hot cooked BBQ chicken, meat shredded from the bones

1 x 500g bag of frozen broccoli florets (defrosted while the early steps cook)

250g raw macaroni pasta shells

1 cup of milk

2 cups grated cheese


1Add soup, cream, pepper and mustard to 6L slow cooker

2Cook on high for 45mins

3Add chicken and cook on high for an additional 45mins

4Add broccoli, pasta and milk and cook on high for an additional 45mins – or until pasta is cooked to your liking (if it needs extra time in your cooker it may need additional milk – just watch it doesn’t dry out)

5Stir through grated cheese and leave for approx. 5mins to melt prior to serving

6Note: Cooking cream is one that resists splitting when heated. If you only have regular thickened cream, stir through 1-2 tsp cornflour to it first to help prevent splitting.

A quick and easy recipe that is perfect for cold winter nights. A real favourite in our house now. Freezes well and can stretch it out to 6 or 8 smaller serves, depending on how much chicken or broccoli you get in your packet. We have it with garlic bread/toast.
I make it as stated but leave out the pepper and mustard due to allergies.

Yes Sally you can

Wow! Instant family favourite. This was easy to throw together, I prepped in the morning before work and the teen threw it together and followed the steps. It was yummy and there were calls for it on the monthly rotations!
