Recipe

This recipe couldn't be any easier and the results are amazing - One Pot Creamy Parmesan Chicken and Broccoli Pasta. Such a delicious meal and so simple.

I am becoming a bit obsessed with one pot pasta dishes. Any meal that only produces one dirty dish is my kind of meal, especially when it is a creamy Parmesan pasta dish packed with chicken, broccoli, and plenty of garlic. Yum.

So the secret of this dish is cooking the pasta in a mixture of milk and chicken broth. The milk, broth, and starch in the pasta combine to create a creamy, rich sauce right in the pot. The liquid keeps the chicken nice and moist and that's really all there is to it. It's so easy and so good.

Directions

  1. Heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the pot and cook for 3-4 minutes until just browned.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add the pasta, chicken broth, and milk. Bring to a boil and then turn down to a simmer. Cook for 18-20 minutes, stirring often. Add the broccoli after 8 minutes. Cook until the pasta is fully cooked and absorbed the liquid to create a creamy sauce. If needed added more milk or chicken broth.
  3. Stir in the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and lots of black pepper.

    Loved this dish! I am no gourmet so I added garlic powder to my chicken and more to my sauce. I also used more broth than it calls for. Sauce was creamy and flavorful

    My sauce for the recipe did not turn out that great and was a little flavorless. The recipe was easy to follow.
