How to Make Skillet Chicken, Broccoli, Pasta and Asiago


  • 1Season 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.
  • 2Add 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.
  • 3Add 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.
  • 4Add 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.
  • 5Uncover 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.
