  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the rotini, and return to a boil. Cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 10 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Preheat an oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  3. In a bowl, mix soup, broccoli, chicken, and milk. Season with garlic powder and pepper. Transfer to a baking dish and top with Cheddar cheese.
  4. Cover and bake 20 minutes in the preheated oven. Remove cover and continue baking 10 minutes, until bubbly.

This is very quick and easy. I made it with double the noodles and just added little extra milk. I also mixed unseasoned breadcrumbs with melted butter and sprinkled on top for a little crispiness.

I used left-over cajun chicken. This was okay. A little boring but quick and easy.

I made this as a side dish, so I excluded the chicken and added a few more ounces of pasta. I also used canned green beans instead of the broccoli and added the cheese in with everything. I added italian seasoning as well. Topped the dish with seasoned breadcrumbs mixed with a little melted butter...I also added a little garlic to the breadcrumbs. We really enjoyed it! Super easy and will make again!

This was an quick and simple, delicious meal for my entire family! Everyone (including picky eater 5 and 7 year old sisters) gave the dish a thumbs up. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!!!

Quick and a hit with the kids! I doubled this recipe and filled a 13x9 pan. I added approx 3/4 cup of sour cream and topped with a combo of melted butter mixed with a 1/2 sleeve of ritz crackers.

Pretty bland, but unobjectionable. Very family friendly. It doesn't say what size dish to use, but I used an 8x8 pan. I mixed the cheese in with the pasta so I could add a cracker topping, which the kids like.

I added some salt and onion powder to the mix. I accidentally added the 1/2 cup of cheese to the mix then topped it with more cheese. I liked it. My 2 year old loved it.

So yummy! I modified a bit. I added some sour cream, Cayenne, Paprika, and I topped with crushed Ritz crackers. I also mixed the cheese throughout and just added a little to the top along with the crumbs. It was so simple! I will definitely make it again with my small changes
