Step 1: Prep the Chicken
Cut the chicken into 1/4 inch strips and put them into a bowl. Add the flour, salt, garlic, and pepper and mix to coat the chicken. Heat the oil in a large fry pan over High heat. Add the chicken and cook for 3 minutes, tossing often to give it a quick sear on all sides. Remove the chicken and set aside.
Step 2: Cook the Pasta/Broccoli
Add the chicken broth, followed by the pasta and finally the broccoli. Bring to a boil and cook over High heat, stirring occasionally for 12 minutes.
Step 3: Finish It Up!
Add the milk, cheese, basil and seared chicken into the pan. Mix until combined and simmer covered for 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and sauce has thickened. Plate and sprinkle with more cheese as desired. ENJOY!!
