    Adaptation from Rachel Ray--really good. I added garlic to mine because to me nothing can be made without garlic =)

    1. 1
      Heat a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and chicken and season with salt and pepper. Saute a couple of minutes then add onion and chives and cook another 6 minutes until onions are tender and chicken is cooked through. Turn off heat and reserve.
    2. 2
      In a separate pot boil water, add pasta and salt. Cook 5 minutes, then add broccoli and cook 3 minutes more or until pasta is cooked to al dente and the broccoli is just tender.

      This was very good even with substitutions. I swapped rice flour for the flour in the roux and also rice macaroni noodles (as my son has a wheat sensitivity). I also didn't have chicken so I left it out, but I'm sure it would be very good and more of a whole meal with it. Thanks for the recipe!
