Directions

  1. Place water in the steamer pot (enough to boil for 30 or more minutes) and place over medium heat.
  2. wash and chop the broccoli, and/or cauliflower and place in the steamer basket.
  3. Slice chicken breasts into halves or thirds and place over the vegetables.
  4. Salt and pepper the basket contents to taste.
  5. When the water is boiling, add the basket and cover tightly with a lid.
  6. After 5 minutes or so of steaming, separate the chicken pieces gently with a fork and continue steaming.
  7. Steam until all is done (about 165 for the chicken and 190 to 200F for the broccoli). This is usually about 12 to 15 minutes if the chicken is divided.
