Karen’s Killer Fixin’s #recipe ~ Sauté of Chicken & Broccoli, Italian Style

Cooking

It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe. A cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes my eye and fancy…which today is SAUTÉ OF CHICKEN & BROCCOLI, ITALIAN STYLE!

I found this recipe on the Food Network and it’s really delicious. Who doesn’t love pasta? I also like that there are some fresh and healthy ingredients to make it good for us.

I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!

Note: Although the recipe calls for al dente, I’m not overly fond of chewy veggies or pasta. If you’re the same, be sure to cook both a little longer to your preference.

Happy Eating!
