Chicken Broccoli And Ziti

CB zitiI saw this recipe on one of our local news stations when they do their weekly visits to restaurants. I have tried it a few times and it is mmmm absolutely delish! I have to say that this is definitely one of my favorite meals. I generally love anything with cream sauce in it and when we got out to eat and this is on the menu then its for me. I have to admit that I am not a broccoli fan and I generally pick it out or eat very little of it but with this recipe I eat every single bite!

* 1/4 cup oil
* 1/4 Stick Butter
* 1/4 Cup chopped garlic (less if using fresh)
* 1 qt heavy cream
* 8 Cups Broccoli Florets (frozen)
* 10-12 pieces of chicken tenders (I used a pkg of grilled Perdue Short Cuts)
* 3 cups of artichoke hearts (I passed on this ingredient)
* Pinch of Salt & Pepper (I used Goya Adobo All Seasoning instead)
* Pinch of granulated garlic
* 3 Cups Parmesan
* 7 Cups of ziti cooked aldente

  1. Start out using an 8qt sauce pan/pot
  2. Make sure your veggies are strained of excess water
  3. On low/medium heat, add your oil and butter and heat until the butter melts
  4. Add your garlic and saute until it (just starts) to turn light brown (about 2 min)
  5. Add your cream and heat until it just starts to slightly boil
  6. Add your broccoli florets and stir for about 2 min
  7. Add your chicken and keep stirring about 2 min ( I sprinkled Adobo on chicken to season)
  8. Add your Artichoke hearts, salt, pepper, granulated garlic and let simmer about 2 min.
  9. Next put in your ziti and stir into the pot followed by the Parmesan and shut off
  10. Continue stirring for a couple minutes so the cream and Parmesan do not stick or burn in the pot
