1 tbsp olive oil
1 lb chicken breasts in small pieces
1/2 tsp salt and pepper
1 onion chopped
4 cloves garlic minced
8 oz pasta uncooked, such as penne, shells, rigatoni, etc.
1 cup chicken broth
2 cups milk
2 cup broccoli cut into small florets
1/4 tsp nutmeg
2 cups cheddar cheese shredded
Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add the chicken breasts to the skillet and season them with salt and pepper. Cook for about 5 minutes until the chicken is cooked through and starts to lightly brown.
Add the onions, garlic and cook for another 2 minutes until the onions softens.
Add the pasta, chicken broth, milk and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to low, stir, cover the pot/skillet and simmer for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the pasta cooks through.
Uncover the pot and stir in the broccoli. Continue cooking until all the liquid evaporates. Stir in cheese. Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt and pepper if needed. Serve while warm.
