Ingredients

  • 1 chicken breast fillet
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • salt
  • pepper
  • 1 and 1/2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1/4 cup full-fat milk
  • 125 grams cream cheese at room temperature
  • cooked pasta for two

Instructions

  • Cut the chicken breast fillet into half-inch cubes.
  • Crush, peel and mince the garlic.
  • Melt the butter in a wide shallow pan.
  • Spread the chicken cubes in a single layer. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat for a minute without disturbing them.
  • Add the minced garlic to the chicken. Cook, stirring often, for another minute.
  • Add the broccoli florets to the chicken. Sprinkle in more salt and pepper. Cook the broccoli with the chicken, stirring often, for a minute. Scoop out the chicken and broccoli; transfer to a plate.
  • Set the heat to low. Pour the cream and milk into the pan. Add the cream cheese, breaking it into small pieces with a spatula. Cook the sauce, stirring a few times, just until simmering and the cream cheese is melted. Taste. Add salt and pepper, as needed.
  • Add the cooked pasta to the pan and toss to coat every noodle with the rich creamy sauce.
  • Turn off the heat. Add the chicken and broccoli to the noodles. Stir a few times.
  • Serve the chicken broccoli pasta with cream sauce immediately.
