After having this dish in an olive oil-based sauce, my family prefers it over an alfredo one. I came up with this one.

How to Make Ziti, Broccoli, and Chicken


  1. Marinate cut up chicken in dressing. Let sit for at least two hours in the refrigerator.
  2. When ready to prepare, heat oil on medium-low heat until hot. Remove from heat and add garlic. Add butter and salt to oil and set aside.
  3. In a large sauce pan, boil water for pasta. In a skillet, pour chicken, including any remaining dressing, and cook about 10 minutes.
  4. When water boils, add pasta. Cook according to the package directions, minus 5 minutes. When the pasta is cooked within 5 minutes, add the broccoli to the same pan to blanch.
  5. Drain pasta/broccoli together. Mix in large bowl with chicken and toss with the oil/garlic/butter mixture. Serve with parmesan cheese.
