Recipe: Pesto Chicken and Broccoli Pasta

Pesto Chicken and Broccoli Pasta

This pesto chicken and broccoli dinner is a jazzed up version of my favorite creamy chicken and broccoli pasta. It’s loaded with garlic, parmesan, pesto, and chicken + broccoli.

The chicken is first cooked in browned garlic and onions then the parmesan, pesto and cream is added and that’s where the real fun begins. Aldente pasta and broccoli is then added to this delicious mixture of creamy heaven and the result is the best most flavorful pesto pasta you will ever have.
