Olive Garden's Garlic Herb Chicken con Broccoli
This is my absolute favorite dish to get at Olive Garden and I am so pleased that I can make it at home now!!
You will need:
1 pound chicken breasts
2 tsp EVOO
4 ounces dry orecchiette pasta
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 Tbsp butter
2 tsp minced garlic
2 tsp cornstarch
1 cup broccoli florets
salt and pepper
2 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
1-2 tsp dried basil, parsley, & rosemary mixture
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
Combine ingredients from spice mixture. Rub onto chicken breasts. Cook chicken in the EVOO until done and browned on each side, set aside.
Cook orecchiette in a large pot of salted water until almost done, drain and return to pot.
Stir butter and garlic into saute pan. Cook til garlic carmelizes, then add the cream and cornstarch on medium heat until it thickens to a sauce, and add that to the pasta.
Stir chicken and broccoli into the pasta. Simmer until pasta is done and remove from heat.
Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper!
