From "The South Beach Diet Cook Book" c. 2004 Probably one of the best-known ways to prepare chicken, this phase 2 dish is deeply rooted in Eastern European tradition.


  1. Prepare linguine as directed. Drain and cover to keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, sprinkle the chicken with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a large, non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium heat.
  4. Add the chicken and cook, stirring, for 7-8 minutes or until the pieces begin to brown.
  5. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  6. Add onion, garlic, and 3 tablespoons of the broth to the skillet.
  7. Cook, stirring, for 5 minutes or until onion is tender. (Add more broth if necessary to prevent sticking.).
  8. Stir in paprika and cook for 1 minute.
  9. Stir in remaining broth. Then add chicken and broccoli. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
  10. Stir in the sour cream.
  11. Cook, stirring, over low heat for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through. (Do not boil.).
  12. Serve over Linguine.
