Chicken and Broccoli Pasta = Approval

Chicken and Broccoli Pasta = Husband's Approval



I tested out this new recipe last night and Husband loved it! I went to take a picture of a plate of it and he had taken all of it. So sorry its such a bad picture, but it was all that was left on his plate.

Ingredients

3/4 box of whole wheat penne pasta
1 head of broccoli
olive oil
1 shallot chopped
2 clove of garlic chopped
2 skinless chicken breasts cut into strips
2 tsp basil
1 can fat free cream of mushroom soup
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chicken broth
salt and pepper

Directions

Boil pasta and broccoli until cooked. Sauté the garlic and shallot in a small amount of oil. Season chicken with salt and pepper to taste and cook chicken until browned and thoroughly cooked. Add basil, cream of mushroom soup, milk and chicken broth. Allow to simmer and reduce. Then, add the cooked pasta and broccoli and stir to combine and heat through.

It was really tasty and I might even try mix it up a little next time. Maybe we'll try some peas or another veggie!

Have you tried any new recipes lately?
