Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Rotini


  • 1 box of Rotini noodles: $0.82
  • 1 frozen bag of cut broccoli: $0.77
  • 1 frozen family size bag of fajita chicken: $6.28
  • 1 can of Ragu Double Cheddar cheese sauce: $1.66
  • Optional: Garlic toast for an even better meal


  1. Start by boiling the Rotini noodles according to the package instructions until they are al dente. This usually takes about 8-10 minutes. Drain the noodles and set them aside.
  2. In a large skillet or pan, heat the frozen fajita chicken strips and frozen cut broccoli. You can cook them together until the chicken is fully cooked and the broccoli is tender. You may want to season them with some salt and pepper or other preferred seasonings.
  3. Once the chicken and broccoli are cooked, add the can of Ragu Double Cheddar cheese sauce to the skillet. Stir it in with the chicken and broccoli, allowing the cheese sauce to warm and coat the other ingredients. You can adjust the thickness of the sauce by adding a little water or milk if desired.
  4. When the cheese sauce is warm and everything is well-mixed, add the drained Rotini noodles to the skillet and toss them together with the cheesy chicken and broccoli mixture. This will create a creamy, cheesy pasta dish.
  5. Serve your meal hot, and consider adding some garlic toast on the side for extra flavor and texture.

This meal is not only affordable but also quick and easy to prepare, making it perfect for a family of six. You can customize it by adding more seasonings, such as garlic powder, crushed red pepper flakes, or herbs like basil and oregano, to suit your family’s taste. Enjoy your delicious and budget-friendly family dinner!
