READY IN: 1hr 5mins
SERVES: 8-10




  • Pulse bread, Parmesan, garlic, and 2 tablespoons of butter in a food processor until coarsely ground. (Alternatively, using your hands to do such also works.).
  • Cook pasta as directed, drain it, and pour into a baking dish of choice.
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees, and make sure there is an oven rack in the middle position.
  • Heat remaining butter, flour, mustard, and cayenne over medium-high heat, stirring constantly, until golden, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Slowly whisk in broth, drained chicken broth, and cream and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce heat to medium and simmer until slightly thickened, about 15 minutes.
  • Take the pot off the heat, and whisk in the cheese, chicken, salt, and pepper until smooth.
  • Mix the sauce in with the pasta, cover with aluminum foil, and bake in the middle oven rack for 20 minutes.
  • Remove the foil, top with breadcrumbs, and bake until the breadcrumbs are golden brown and crisp, about 20 minutes.
