Ingredients: One head of Broccoli Crowns, 3 Chicken Cutlets, 1 ½ Cups of White Wine (pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc) 1lb of Pasta. ½ cup of Water. 1 onion, 2 cloves of garlic. Salt/Pepper. Deep Sauté Pan, and Medium sized Pot for Pasta. 2 cutting boards. 1 strainer.
Let’s Get Cooking:Let’s start by washing the broccoli, I also like to rinse off the chicken. Taking two different cutting boards, keeping your meat separate from your vegetable, place both on separate cutting boards. Slice your chicken length wise so that they are about an inch and a half long. Place on the side. Cut your broccoli into large pieces, taking off the stems, you can discard those, or save them for another dish. Slice your Onion in round slices and then cutting again in half moon shape, put to the side. Cut your garlic by either pressing it or slicing in the shape of almonds. Put to the side along with your onions.Fill your medium sized pot with enough water to make 1 lb. of Pasta. Place on the stove adding 1 table spoon of salt to the water, cover and turn heat to Medium/High.In your Sauté pan, add about 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil. Turn your heat on Medium. Once you can feel some heat coming off the pan, add in your garlic/onion. It should sizzle. Now add in your Chicken slices. After two minutes, turn your chicken. Now add in your Broccoli. Cover for about 5 minutes. After that time add in your White Wine, Water, Salt and Pepper. Cover for 10 minutes. At this point, your chicken will be done, so now it’s up to you on how soft or crunchy you like your broccoli. Don’t be shy, taste a floret, so it’s to your liking. If you think it’s done, remove the cover for about 5 more minutes. During this cooking process if your water comes to a boil, add in your pasta, stirring every 4-5 minutes until it is done. Again, how people like the consistency of their pasta varies, so at the 10 minute marker, make sure you taste it. Once the pasta is done, strain it in your sink, and then add it back to the pot you cooked it in. Now add in all contents of your Sauté pan. There should be a good amount of liquid in that pan to be absorbed by the pasta. If there isn’t, simmer 1 cup of Chicken Broth if you have it handy or another cup of white wine. You can serve this dish out of the pot into your guest’s dishes, or put in a large bowl for family style serving.
