Progressive Dinner: Chicken, Broccoli & Ziti


VPD Lauri Main Course

This recipe is from my dad. My oldest son requests it all the time and every time my parents come to visit, he always ask Gramps to make it. Apparently, mom does not do as good of a job! 🙂

Chicken, Broccoli & Ziti

Makes 4 servings
1 lb of ziti
1 lb of chicken breast
2 cups mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup heavy cream
olive oil
garlic seasoning
1 head broccoli
Cube chicken, season with garlic powder, salt and pepper. Cook until no longer pink inside. Set chicken aside on plate, but cover to keep warm. While chicken is cooking, cook pasta as directed. When there is about five minutes left on the pasta, toss in the cut broccoli. Warm a little bit of olive oil and heavy cream in the same pan the chicken was in. Pour over drained pasta, add chicken, and mozzarella cheese. Mix together. You may add black olives if you like.
