I copied the this recipe for Chicken with Broccoli, Sun-dried Tomatoes and Bow Tie Pasta on a scrap of paper nearly two decades ago. It’s morphed a bit through the years.

Easy Dinner Recipe

To speed up production, start prepping your chicken and broccoli while bringing the pasta water to a boil. While the pasta is cooking, you can sauté the chicken et al, then patiently wait for both components to finish up. It won’t take long.

There are no exact measurements. You can use the whole box of pasta, more or less broccoli, or amp up the red pepper flakes. Every ingredient can be increase or decreased according to your preferences. I’ll give a general recipe and you can tweak away. This Chicken with Broccoli is my youngest’s favorite pasta meal. He doesn’t need to know it’s a no-brainer!

Tip of the day: always cook pasta in well salted water; it should taste briny like the ocean. The end result will be much tastier.
