September 27, 2021
Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Pasta Bake

Ingredients

for 4 servings

  • ½ tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 ½ tablespoons all purpose flour
  • 32 oz half & half (960 mL)
  • ¾ teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 ½ tablespoons onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon celery salt
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese (55 g)
  • 1 ¾ cups shredded cheddar cheese (175 g), divided
  • 2 cups Kroger® Brand Frozen Broccoli Florets (150 g), frozen, thawed, divided
  • 1 ¾ cups Kroger® Brand Grilled Chicken Breast Dices (350 g), divided
  • 1 box Kroger® Brand 100% Whole Grain Salad Rotini Pasta, cooked according to package instructions
  • Kroger® Brand Italian Herb Focaccia, baked according to package instructions, for serving

Preparation

  1. Preheat the broiler to high.
  2. Melt the butter in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Whisk in the flour until fully incorporated, then toast for about 30 seconds, or until slightly darkened in color.
  3. Add the half-and-half and whisk until the flour mixture has completely dissolved. Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 3–4 minutes, or until the liquid has thickened lightly.
  4. Stir in the kosher salt, onion powder, black pepper, nutmeg, and celery salt. Add the shredded mozzarella and 1 cup of the shredded cheddar, and whisk until completely melted and smooth, 2–3 minutes.
  5. Remove the pot from the heat and fold in 1½ cups Kroger® Brand Frozen Broccoli Florets, 1¼ cups Kroger® Brand Grilled Chicken Breast Dices, and the cooked Kroger® Brand 100% Whole Grain Salad Rotini Pasta.
  6. Transfer the pasta to an 8”x13” baking dish and spread in an even layer. Sprinkle the remaining ½ cup Kroger® Brand Frozen Broccoli Florets, remaining ½ cup Kroger® Brand Grilled Chicken Breast Dices, and remaining ¾ cup shredded cheddar cheese on top.
  7. Place the dish under the broiler for 3–6 minutes, or until the cheese on top has melted and is lightly browned and crispy.
  8. Serve immediately with Kroger® Brand Italian Herb Focaccia.
  9. Enjoy!
