Serves 4 

Ingredients

  • 2 chicken breasts seasoned with salt & pepper then cooked and cut into bite­sized pieces 
  • 2 cups cooked broccoli 
  • 8oz gluten­free or regular rotini 
  • 2 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil 
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic 
  • 2 Tablespoons flour 
  • 1 cup chicken broth 
  • 1/4 cup milk (any kind, I used almond milk) 
  • 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt salt & pepper 
  • 3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese 

Directions 

1. Cook pasta according to package directions, reserving 1/2 cup pasta cooking water before draining. Set aside. 

2. Heat extra virgin olive oil in a medium­sized skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until golden brown, about 1 minute. Sprinkle in flour then whisk to incorporate and cook for 1 additional minute. 

3. Slowly whisk in chicken broth, then milk. Whisk in Greek yogurt, salt and pepper, then turn the heat down to low and let the mixture simmer until thickened, about 2­3 minutes. Turn the heat off then stir in parmesan cheese, then chicken. Pour over cooked pasta then add broccoli and stir well. Add a little reserved pasta cooking water if sauce is too thick. 

4. Serve
