Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Pasta

This dish is so simple.   I used some cut up leftover spaghetti for this; but any kind of pasta will work great.  It has a bit of an alfredo flair with the parmesan and garlic but a bit lighter sauce.   It can easily be adapted to be made with leftover cooked chicken and what ever vegetables you desire.

Creamy Chicken and Broccoli Pasta

  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 cloves garlic – minced
  • 1 Tbs olive oil
  • 1/4 ts cayenne
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 small heads broccoli
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup cream
  • 1 o.z. parmesan
  • cooked pasta

Heat olive oil in skillet over medium high; slice chicken breasts and add to hot skillet.  Add garlic, cayenne, salt, and pepper. Cook about 10 minutes until meat has browned and in cooked through.  Reduce heat to medium add broccoli and water cover and cook 5 minutes.  Stir in cream, parmesan, and cooked pasta; simmer another 5 minutes until heated through and broccoli is desired tenderness.

Enjoy ~ Kimberly
