Easy Pasta & Chicken Casserole

Today at work a friend of mine and I were chatting about what to make for dinner.  We both started throwing out ideas and this is what her and I came up with!


Serves: 6

Ingredients:

1 pack of boneless skinless chicken breasts (2 pieces)
1/2 a large onion
1 can of sliced mushrooms
2 boxes of Three Cheese Kraft dinner (shell kind) - prepared as you would normally
1 medium sized head of broccoli
Bread crumbs
1 cup of shredded cheese
Parmesan cheese
Salt & Pepper to taste
Dash of Thyme
Dash of Rosemary (optional)
Dash of BBQ Chicken Spice
Garlic

Instructions:
1.  Chop chicken breasts into small chunks and put in lightly oiled frying pan
2.  Cut up onion and add to chicken - cook until chicken is thoroughly cooked.  Turn off and set aside.
3.  Add spices and mushrooms.
4.  Boil water for Kraft dinner.
5.  Prepare broccoli and add to Kraft dinner for the last 2 to 3 minutes & drain.
6.  Make Kraft dinner as you would normally (I add a dash of milk, butter, salt & pepper with the cheese sauce mix)
7.  Pre-heat oven to 350F
8.  Mix pasta & chicken in a glass baking dish. (I used an 8"x11")
9.  Top mixture with shredded cheese
10.  Sprinkle on bread crumbs & Parmesan cheese
11.  Bake until edges start to turn a bit golden (approx 15 to 20 mins)

Let cool and enjoy!
