Step 1

Bake the chicken breasts and season to preferred flavor (Be it cajun, mexican, or italian, etc.)

Step 2

Boil noodles (also until desired tenderness)

Step 3

Steam broccoli (and yet again, until desired tenderness)

Step 4

Once the chicken is cooked to desire, SHRED it, don't slice it, shredding it will help it mix easier)

Step 5

Mix Velveeta and milk together and melt for easy mixing.

Step 6

Mix the chicken, noodles, broccoli, Rotel tomatoes, and Velveeta together in a large frying pan, or preferably a large boiling pot (no need to turn on high heat, just stir enough to get all the items mixed together well).

Step 7

For the crushed red peppers, you can add as much as you like, the more, the spicier.
