Skillet Ziti With Chicken & Broccoli

Recipe by Teri G.
READY IN: 30mins




  • Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Melt 1 tbs butter in 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and cook until it is lightly browned but not fully cooked, about 4 minutes. Transfer chicken to a bowl.
  • Add 1 more tbs butter, onion, red pepper flakes, oregano, & 1/2 tsp salt to the skillet. Cook until the onion is softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 15 seconds.
  • Sprinkle the ziti evenly into the skillet. Pour the broth and milk over the ziti. Cover and bring to a simmer about 5-10 minutes or till al dente (original recipe advised to cook pasta for only two minutes, I found this to be not long enough).
  • Reduce heat to medium low and stir in the broccoli and roasted red peppers. Cover and continue to simmer, stirring occasionally, until the past begins to soften and the broccoli turns bright green, about 8 minutes. (If the sauce reduces too much you could add more milk and broth).
  • Stir in the chicken and any accumulated juice. Cover and continue to simmer until the chicken is cooked through, about 3 minutes longer.
  • Stir in the remaining 1 tbs butter, Parmesan, and lemon juice. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
