Just different enough, but simple to prepare. I make it almost backwards though...I cook the chicken in a large fry pan, then add the garlic, sautee a bit, add broth & soy sauce, then broccoli & steam for a bit then add the Dijon. Seems faster and simpler that way to me. Great over rice. A keeper, thanks!
I don't know anything about the south beach diet, but this sounded good. It turned out great. The steps in this recipe are very strange though. You can easily pan fry the chicken for a few minutes first, then put your broccoli & garlic in for a few more minutes, and then finally mix in the sauce, then cover and simmer for a few minutes. Saves time, and I'd imagine it doesn't affect the outcome at all. I also cut the amount of broccoli in half and added 2 cups of mushrooms instead, and I added chopped chives, parsley, & a tablespoon of cornstarch to the sauce.
I have made this twice now. This is a GREAT dish. I made a couple of small changes because I didn't have all the ingredients. I substituted Herbox Sodium Free Chicken broth for the reduced sodium stock and used regular soy sauce. It was just right. I thought the broccoli was too crunchy for my taste so the second time I steamed it for 2 minutes before adding to the olive oil and garlic. I also thickened it with 1 tsp cornstarch at the end. I will be making this over and over. It is so good. Very versitile. One of these times I am going to add some mushrooms and cashews to really impress the family. Thanks Mindi for posting. Delish!
