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.

- 2 tsp. olive oil
- 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, chopped

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.
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.
Stir in the Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and lots of black pepper.
