This garlic chicken is so easy to make. Take a couple of chicken breasts season with a bit of salt, lots of fresh garlic, and pan sear the chicken for about 5 to 6 minutes on each side, then remove the chicken from the pan. Toss in some fresh broccoli, and cook until it is just tender. Add some Parmesan cheese, and you can enjoy a light chicken dinner in no time at all.

If you want to change up this recipe a bit, you could add some additional fresh vegetables like some red pepper, or even slices of carrot to this dish. Either carrots or red pepper would work very well.

    You can be so creative with this meal. I added onions, mushrooms, pesto sauce,fresh ginger, S&P and extra parmesan cheese to the pan. I also added some chicken stock. Tasted Great!

    I just made this for supper. I wasn’t expecting much but was totally shocked by how good it tastes. It is a perfect mingling of flavors. My hubby says it can put on his favorites list.

    Can this be cooked using frozen broccoli instead of fresh broccoli? If so, how do I go about adjusting the recipe?
