Chicken Fettuccini with Broccoli

I decided this was a good day for a quick supper and also a good day to use up some items in the fridge, so made my fast and good chicken fettuccini with broccoli and a tossed salad.  This is truly a 30 minute meal that feels like it was much more time consuming.  You can substitute shrimp too and really make it feel special.  It makes a lot so can easily feed 4-6, especially if you make a salad or even add some garlic bread..


Before preparing the chicken and sauce,  prepare the salted water to cook the linguine or fettuccini according to directions on the box to the a dente stage.  (add about 1 cup of bite size frozen broccoli to the fettuccini while it is cooking-save a pan) Drain. 

Prepare 2 large or 3 smaller chicken breasts with salt and pepper, by either grilling them, cutting them in chunks and browning them in a little butter or using a George Forman grill and cooking them-that's what I did tonight because I like the grilled flavor..cut in chunks or thin slices if you grilled it.  set aside.

In a large fry pan with deep sides, melt 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) of butter on low heat.  Add 4 minced green onions and 1 mashed garlic clove; when softened add 1-1/2 cups cream and 1 cup parmesan cheese (I use fresh, grated), pepper and a little salt.  Add your prepared chicken and broccoli, toss with the pasta and serve.
