Xakk's Lemon Broccoli Pasta with Chicken

This is another recipe from Bill Hilbrich from Saint Cloud, Minnesota. If you would like to know a little bit more about Bill have a look at his Bio page - click here.

Bill says: "I wrote this recipe for my friend Xakk, who loves his broccoli almost as much as he loves his partner, Liz. This is a solo meal for him, or with a side dish of fresh fruit, a light lunch for two".


1 cup broccoli florets
6 ounces dry pasta (Rotini is good)
1 boneless skinless chicken breast
1 lemon, juice of
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, diced
1/4 teaspoon black pepper

  • Cook the chicken breast in a non-stick frying pan, 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through.
  • Allow to cool slightly and then dice.
  • While the chicken is cooking, place the Broccoli and the Pasta in 2 quarts of salted boiling water, reduce heat to a simmer and cook for about 6 to 8 minutes or until the broccoli is fork tender.
  • Place oil, the juice from one lemon, garlic and pepper into a shallow dish and stir.
  • Drain the broccoli and pasta and add to the dish and toss.
  • Add chicken and toss again.
