This recipe is my first attempt at making a meal that I didn't just already know how to throw together or have a recipe for right in front of me...I was out of something I needed for everything I could think of to make for dinner, so I just started pulling things out of my fridge. This was the result, & my family all told me that I NEEDED to write this one down so I don't forget how to make it! We all loved it, & I will for sure be making it again.

How To Make chicken bacon broccoli yum

  • 1
    In a large skillet (mine was cast iron) add butter, allowing to melt over med heat, then adding chopped onions & bacon pieces. Cook, stirring as needed, until bacon starts to get crispy (or however you prefer your bacon cooked).
  • 2
    Next, add chicken pieces, cook until the pieces turn white, stirring as needed. (I listed 3 to 4 large chicken breasts, mine were large, but we like chicken, so you can change this to be less if you prefer).
  • 3
    Turn heat to med-low, add broccoli florets. (I just dumped mine on top, no stirring) put lid on & let cook for 15 min.
  • 4
    Remove lid, stirring everything together. Lower heat to low. Add cream cheese, cutting into chunks so it melts better, & pour evaporated milk over everything. (I started with one small can, but decided I wanted it saucier, so I added the second can). Put lid on & let simmer for 10 to 15 min.
  • 5
    Add salt & pepper to taste. Serve over hot noodles or rice.
