This is an Olive Garden copycat - although I have never had the real thing, it was a great recipe. The seasonings are simple but quite delicious. I adore pasta and love even more to have broccoli (or any veggie really) with it. Although it uses heavy cream, it is not a heavy-sitting dish. So if you are looking for a great fast meal - this one is it! Honestly, now that I'm not pregnant anymore, I need to add this to the weekly menu asap. Chicken was inedible for me during pregnancy and thankfully, that aversion went away postpartum!

What you need:
  • Chicken breasts
  • Italian seasoning
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper
  • Red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 Tbsp. EVOO
  • Pasta of choice (I used penne)
  • 2 Tbsp. minced garlic
  • 1 pint heavy cream, divided
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 1 tsp. chicken bouillon granules
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups broccoli florets
  • Parmesan cheese for garnish
Directions:
  1. Sprinkle Italian seasoning, garlic, salt, pepper, and pepper flakes on chicken (cut to your desired thinness). Sprinkle with flour.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet and cook chicken until done. Remove from pan and keep warm.
  3. Meanwhile, cook pasta in salted water until al dente. Drain and toss with butter or a little olive oil.
  4. Mix together cornstarch with a few tablespoons of heavy cream and add to the same skillet that you cooked the chicken in. Give it a stir and then add the remaining heavy cream.
  5. Add chicken bouillon, Italian seasoning, and salt and pepper. Cook until thickened.
  6. Add broccoli and pasta and cook for a few more minutes.
  7. Meanwhile, slice your chicken into strips.
  8. Serve the pasta topped with chicken and Parmesan.
