Chicken Meets Pasta and Broccoli

Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 45 mins
Serves: 4


  • 1 Large Onion
  • 1 Head Broccoli
  • 1 Pint Cherry or Grape Tomatoes
  • 4 Chicken Cutlets ( boneless)
  • ½ box Pene Pasta
  • ½ cup Chicken Stock
  • 2 Tbs Butter
  • White Wine
  • Soy Sauce
  • Sesame Oil
  • Olive Oil
  • 1 Tsp Red Chili Pepper Flakes

Step by Step

  1. Cut Broccoli into florets and Chicken into small pieces , pre cook Broccoli by dropping into boiling water. Save water as you will use for pasta. Don't over cook! 2 min max, should be still crunchy. Remove with a skimmer, keep water boiling.
  2. Pre cook Pasta...Al Dente ! It cooks further later so be careful not to over cook. Drain , set aside
  3. Cut Onion into medium size pieces and sauté with Tomatoes ( we like to do all this in a Wok ) in a mix of 2/3 Olive and 1/3 Sesame Oil until nice and brown adding splashes of wine along the way to deglaze the pan.
  4. Remove from pan. Crank up the heat and add a bit more Olive Oil.
  5. Add a bit more oil to pan and sauté Chicken till nice and brown. Once the Chicken is done add all the cooked ingredients back to pan keeping pan on a pretty high heat.
  6. Add chicken broth, splash of wine , butter and Red Chile Pepper Flakes, a hit of Soy Sauce, and pepper. Careful with adding salt as this tends to get salty on it's own.
  7. Keep stirring over hi heat till some of the juices evaporate and form a thick dark broth.
  8. Serve it up!
