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.

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.

DELICIOUS!!!! Anything less than 5 starts is ludicrous! I used low sodium chicken broth and 1% milk but a lot of fresh garlic and a little extra grated parmesan, but...maybe that makes the difference between 4 and 5 stars?

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.
