   Posted by: John   in Recipes

Here is what’s for supper tonight at John’s house…

Fettuccine with Chicken and Broccoli

  • 1 bunch broccoli, cleaned and chopped (or 12-14 oz frozen florets, thawed)
  • 8 oz fettuccine
  • 4 tsp olive oil
  • 4 (4 oz) skinless boneless chicken breast (or 1 lb chicken breast tenders)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp dried oregano (can use ground oregano)
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil

optional: 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper

1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook the broccoli for 2 minutes.  Remove with a slotted spoon to a bowl.  In the boiling water, cook the fettuccine according to package instructions; drain.

2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tsp of the olive oil over medium heat.  Add salt, oregano and optional red pepper and stir until mixed.  Add the chicken and saute until cooked through about 5 minutes per side.  Transfer to a plate.

3.  In the skillet, heat the remaining 2 tsp of oil over medium-low heat.  Saute the onion and garlic until tender, about 4-5 minutes.  Stir in broccoli and cook, stirring frequently until tender, about 4 minutes.  Add the fettuccini and chicken, mixing everything together.  Sprinkle with the black pepper.  Stir frequently for another 3-4 minutes, until evenly heated.  Add the basil and stir.  Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve. 

Serves 4.
