Recipe Ingredients for Chicken with Broccoli

24 ounce chicken breasts
1 cup white wine
1 large onion
2 cloves garlic
3 tablespoon shallot
2 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons butter
3 cups broccoli
16 ounces pasta
4 ounces parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Chicken with Broccoli

Lightly browning chicken breast strips in butter started building flavor. We kept the chicken tender and added more flavor by letting the strips finish cooking in the sauce, and we kept the broccoli fresh and crisp by blanching it in the boiling pasta water and then putting it aside until the dish was assembled. But our real breakthrough was to eliminate the cream typically used in this dish and create instead a broth-based sauce, which we rounded out with a few tablespoons of butter, a handful of Asiago cheese.
