Directions

1. To make the broccoli chicken recipe: In a large bowl, season diced chicken breast with Italian seasoning, crushed red pepper, and salt & pepper. Let sit while you’re prepping veggies.

2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chopped chicken breasts and sautee for 4-5 minutes or until chicken is golden and cooked through.

3. Add the garlic and saute for one minute or until fragrant. Add the chopped sundried tomatoes and broccoli and cook for another 3-4 minutes.

4. Finally, add cream cheese and shredded cheese to the skillet, give a good stir and cook for 3 minutes more to melt cheese through. Thin the sauce with chicken broth, to your liking. Serve the broccoli chicken skillet with zucchini noodlescauliflower rice or pasta, or rice if you’re not on low-carb/keto diet. Enjoy!

Note:

  • You can thin the sauce by adding a little more water or chicken broth to the skillet

    Peggy - if you click on detailed recipe, there’s a link w nutrition Donna - I used frozen broccoli (microwaved it first) - I think it turned out fine. I added a little chopped onion also. Quite yummy! Add this to my low carb repertoire.
