Ziti, Broccoli, and Chicken

Jo-Ellen Kenney


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

2 lb
boneless chicken breasts, cubed
1/2 c
italian dressing, zesty or robust
3 clove
garlic, minced
1/3 c
olive oil
1/4 c
butter or margine
1 lb
ziti pasta
2 bunch
broccoli crowns, cut up


1Marinate cut up chicken in dressing. Let sit for at least two hours in the refrigerator.
2When 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.
3In a large sauce pan, boil water for pasta. In a skillet, pour chicken, including any remaining dressing, and cook about 10 minutes.
4When 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.
5Drain pasta/broccoli together. Mix in large bowl with chicken and toss with the oil/garlic/butter mixture. Serve with parmesan cheese.
