My friend Joe emailed me last week and said “do you have a lowfat recipe for ziti, chicken and broccoli”? And I was like, uh, I can make one – how about something creamy like an alfredo sauce. He replied “no but I want something lowfat” and I was all DO YOU NOT KNOW ME?????
So I created this and emailed it to him even though I have never made it. Tonight when I got home from the gym I couldn’t stop thinking about “mmm creamy alfredo and chickens and broccolis mmmm”. So I made it (without the pasta because, hi, have I mentioned I’m going to CA next weekend?)
It was yummy.
Ziti, Chicken and Broccoli for Joe
1 pound ziti
3 cloves chopped garlic
1 tablespoon flour
1 pint fat free half and half cream
1 can , fat free chicken broth
1 cube chicken bouillon
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
salt and pepper
1 bag broccoli florets, steamed
4 boneless skinless chicken breast, cooked and cubed
-Cook pasta until al dente
-In a large skillet, saute garlic the olive oil over medium heat. Add the flour to make a roux. When the flour makes a paste stir in the fat free half and half, 20 minutes., and bouillon. Add Parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. Simmer all together for about
-Once sauce is cooked and thickens, add broccoli and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes. Once sauce is done, put cooked ziti in a large bowl, pour sauce over pasta and mix. Then add the chicken pieces and mix all together.
