Boneless chicken and broccoli make a delicious pairing in a tomato-garlic sauce. Use your favorite shaped pasta - penne and shells work well.

I agree that this recipe needed something. I prepared it by browning the chicken, then added the onions and lots of garlic, cooked it until the onions were soft, then added the brocolli and 1/2 cup of chicken broth. (The chicken broth helps take away the natural bitterness of the brocolli). I then added a 24 oz. can of crushed tomatoes, basil, oregano, parmesan cheese, and a cup of dry red wine. I then let it simmer for 30 minutes and tossed with rigatoni. Turned out very well and I would definitely make it again!

I used chicken broth to cook the chicken, onion and garlic in and skipped the cheese so it was very low-fat. I also added more onion and garlic and a heaping teaspoon of both oregano flakes and basil flakes. My husband and I both thought it was terrific!

Very good! I added extra garlic (5 cloves), one large onion, a tsp+ of oregano, and some canned mild green chilies (drained). I also added a fresh yellow pepper from the garden which added a nice flavor. I didn't have fresh broccoli, but the frozen worked great. This recipe is not for people who like thick tomato sauces, but the end result is a very flavorful, fresh-tasting dish.
