This was a lot better tasting than I thought it would be (honestly it was just as good as other more time-intensive recipes for alfredo that I've made at home.) I used less chicken and used the breast of a rotisserie chicken just because that's what I had left over. This was pretty convenient since using the already-cooked chicken cut the preparation time in half. I liked this dish with less chicken and when I make it next time I will add more broccoli as I didn't think it had enough. The cook time for the broccoli was perfect - it was still nice and bright green with just a slight crunch to it. I personally thought this was fine with the cream of mushroom (I hate mushrooms but I hardly noticed the tiny little pieces in there) but I think this dish could be done with just about any type of cream soup.

What is up with people adding mushrooms to everything! Mushrooms don't belong in alfredo. Alfredo should be creamy and cheesy. Read More

I absolutely love this recipe. I made one small alteration by adding about 2 oz of cream cheese to the soup mixture. Maybe not for the low-fat conscious but the addition makes it ten times better! Read More

I was really impressed with this dish! It had such a true alfredo flavor for something that was not a true high fat alfredo sauce. It was quite simple and quick to make with very little mess. I used frozen broccoli spears and to saute the chicken I used half butter half olive oil for a great burst of flavor! I increased the parmesan to 3/4 cup also. I will definately make this dish again.

I'm a college student on a fixed food budget who is still getting the hang of cooking. This recipe was a good quick meal that I had time to make while studying. While I am not a fan of mushrooms the Campbell's Condensed Cream of Mushroom soup (I used the healthy request variety) proved to be a very handy ingredient. Overall the recipe made a delicious meal but personally I would add 1/4 tbsp of garlic powder to the recipe to give it more of an Alfredo taste. Read More

I made this tonight for dinner and made it with shrimp and scallops instead of the chicken. I added a can of diced tomatoes with chilis and it was wonderful. I think the chicken would be just as good. Read More

Very good and very easy to make. I think next time I would use less cheese and a little more broccoli to make it lighter. We added french bread and white wine to make it an easy meal! Read More

Excellent! I saw this recipe advertised in Martha Stewart magazine and it looked very easy and good. I offered to make dinner for my boyfriend and told him I wanted to try this. I used penne instead of the linguine at his request. The dish was great. I added extra parmesan black pepper and red pepper flakes on top for the perfect spice. I also made the broccoli on the side. I definately will be making this again. It was easy and most of the ingredients are staples in your pantry. Read More
