    Melvin'sWifey's Note:

    Chicken, pasta and broccoli! This is an easy clean up dish because it just uses the one large skillet and a pot to boil pasta. This weeknight meal also is stock full of ingredients most of you will have in your cupboards! This can be easily adapted and varied with just a few spice changes and more red pepper for heat! Kids always enjoy this as well. Put this quickie together with a crusty sliced bread and a green salad with grape tomatoes.

    1. 1
      Heat cooking oil over medium high heat in large skillet with tall sides.
    2. 2
      On a plate combine breadcrumbs, garlic powder, italian seasonings, chili powder, and seasoning salt.
    3. 3
      Wash chicken breasts and dredge in breadcrumb/spice mixture until fully and evenly coated on both sides, adding more breadcrumbs if needed. Place chicken pieces in hot oil and cook on each side 6 minutes or until completely cooked through. Remove chicken from pan and set aside 15 minutes, then chop into bite sized pieces and set aside. Leave drippings in pan for further use.
    4. 4
      While chicken is cooking, boil enough water for 1/2 pound pasta and add 1/2 teaspoon salt to the boiling water. Add pasta and cook according to the number of minutes on the box.
    5. 5
      While the pasta and chicken are still cooking (separately of course) in a medium bowl mix 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper.
    6. 6
      After pasta is al-dente, drain water then add pasta into the bowl with the olive oil, salt and pepper. Stir until all pasta is coated and set aside.
    7. 7
      In the skillet where the chicken cooked, turn it back onto medium high heat, and add 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add chopped onion to hot oil and sauté 4 minutes, stirring often.
    8. 8
      Lift skillet away from heat and add white wine. Return to heat and add balsamic vinegar. Stir together and scrape breadcrumbs/drippings from skillet, as the wine will loosen everything up.
    9. 9
      Bring to medium high heat and add the cut broccoli. Pan fry for 5 minutes, turning once. In small cup combine 1/4 cup water, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper until salt is dissolved. Add mixture to broccoli and bring to a quick boil. Turn down to simmer, COVER 5 minutes to steam cook and leave broccoli tender crisp.
    10. 10
      Add to the skillet: cut up breaded chicken, and al-dente pasta with olive oil dressing, and toss to coat with pan fried balsamic broccoli.
    11. 11
      Add freshly grated Parmesan cheese and toss everything together in skillet! Serve hot and serve immediately with a crusty bread and green salad.

      We thought this was just okay. I agree that the breading had good flavor, but it all seemed rather flat. Thanks for the approx cooking times on for the chicken, that helped out tremendously. In the end, it got dinner on the table and the youngin' ate it pretty well.

      I really really liked this dish. It was great for a quick meal after a hectic day. I used a little more cheese than was called for and also used the italian blend and it was still delicious. Next time I think I will increase the white wine, broccoli and onion for our own personal preference. Either way... it was tasty.

      We just had this for dinner. I had broccoli that I needed to use up so figured since I saw this, it would be a good use of the broccoli! The chicken coating is wonderful, I will probably use it for just frying chicken in the future. The pasta and broccoli/chicken mixture, though, didn't have quite enough flavor for our taste. I will definitely keep the chicken coating recipe for future reference though!
