Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts cubed
  • ½ c all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 c fresh broccoli cut into florets
  • 2 c mini rotini pasta
  • 4 c chicken broth (2 14.5 oz cans)
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 2 c half and half
  • ¾ c parmesan cheese freshly grated

Instructions

  • In a large deep skillet, heat the oil and butter together over medium high heat.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the flour, salt and pepper.
  • Lightly dredge the chicken cubes in the flour mixture and place into the hot pan.
  • Brown on all sides, cooking for a total of 4-5 minutes or until cooked through and no longer pink in the center.
  • Transfer chicken to a plate and add in minced garlic. Cook for 30 seconds.
  • Slowly pour in chicken broth and scrape up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan.
  • Bring it to a boil and add in the pasta.
  • Cover the pan with a lid and cook for 10 minutes.
  • Add in the broccoli florets and cover. There should be about 1 cup of liquid in the pan. Add a little water if needed to make up the difference.
  • Cook for 4-5 minutes or until broccoli is tender.
  • Reduce heat to medium low and pour in half and half.
  • Sprinkle in cheese and stir until completely melted.
  • Season with more salt and pepper if needed.
  • Let it simmer for 5 minutes to allow the sauce to thicken.
  • Add in chicken and stir to coat.
  • Serve with more grated parmesan cheese.
