Ingredients

1 lb
chicken breast halves, skinless and boneless-cut up in 1 inch cubes
salt and pepper
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1
medium onion, finely chopped
3-5
large garlic cloves
1/4 tsp
dried oregano
1/8 tsp
red pepper flakes
2 3/4 c
water
1 can(s)
chicken broth, low salt
4 c
broccoli florets
1/4 c
oil packed sun dried tomatoes - rinsed, dried and coarse chopped
1/2 c
heavy cream
1 c
asiago cheese, grated (1/2 for recipe and 1/2 for topping/garnish)
1 Tbsp
juice from lemon

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Season chicken with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tbs. oil in skillet. Add chicken and cook until most pink has disappeared, stirring a few times. Remove chicken and put in a bowl, set aside. Do not drain.
2
Add other tbs of oil to pan and onion and 1/2 tsp salt. Stir often until onion is translucent and softened. Stir in garlic oregano and pepper flakes. Cook 30 seconds until fragrant.
3
Add pasta (I like ziti, penne or rigatoni) and 2 cups of water and the can of broth. Bring to a boil and continue to cook over high heat until liquid becomes thick and syrupy. It will almost be absorbed in 12-15 minutes.
4
Add broccoli, sundried tomatoes and final 3/4 cup of water. Cover and reduce heat to medium. Cook until broccoli is bright green and almost tender. 3-5 minutes.
5
Uncover and return to high heat. Stir in cream and 1/2 Asiago cheese and reserved chicken and juices. Simmer uncovered to cook chicken all the way through and thicken sauce. Roughly 2 minutes. Stir in fresh lemon juice and season with salt and pepper to taste.
