READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Geema

This recipe is a simple, fast, one dish meal,yet elegant enough for company dinners. Just add a green salad and some garlic bread. I make this whenever I have some leftover chicken breasts.

This was about the yummiest thing I've ever made. Husband and four year old loved it too. We didn't use the red pepper flakes, and I used frozen broccoli and probably had more than half a pound. Magnificent! Thank you!
