I’m all about quick and easy dinner ideas that my family will enjoy. One of my favorite go-to recipes is creamy chicken and broccoli. It’s a simple meal that I can make in just a few minutes – and my entire family gobbles it up!
There is nothing worse than standing in the kitchen cooking dinner after a long day. That’s why I’m all about those quick and simple dinners. But, of course, I need to make sure my family will eat it. Becuase, that’s the second worse thing about dinner!
One meal that all five of us eat (shocking, but true) is my cream of broccoli chicken. It is the perfect blend of garlic and butter that ties the entire dish together. Your family will absolutely love it!
I normally prepare this creamy chicken meal over a bed of rice. But, I’ve also used pasta and even serve it all by itself! It’s just that good.
