Pasta turns out to be a great meal for every one of us. The recipe I will be sharing with you today is garlic broccoli and chicken pasta.
This pasta recipe is quick and easy to make. It gives a perfect flavor of garlic with the richness of creamy parmesan sauce. Unlike other creamy kinds of pasta, this combination of chicken breasts combined with broccoli and pasta is not heavy at all. It is because of the use of milk instead of cream.
Garlic broccoli and chicken pasta is an easy recipe. Boil the pasta. Add broccoli to it when it is on the verge of being done. Cook chicken coated with flour and pepper till tender. Sauté garlic with the chicken. Add wine to it and bring it to a boil. Sprinkle the cheese and serve.
