- Start water to boil in large pot. Meanwhile cube chicken. Chop peppers. Slice mushrooms and olives.
- Cook pasta al dente. Last three minutes of cooking add broccoli.
- Meanwhile in skillet saute chicken, garlic, and mushrooms in olive oil. Should take about 7-9 minutes and will be ready when pasta is ready.
