  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons Mazola® Corn Oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon black medium grind pepper
  • 2 cans (14.5 ounces each) reduced sodium chicken broth

  • 4 cups fresh OR frozen broccoli florets

  1. Step 1) Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook chicken for 2 minutes or until lightly browned (chicken will not be fully cooked at this point). Transfer chicken to a plate and set aside.
  2. Step 2) Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan; stir in onions and cook for 2 minutes. Add garlic, Italian herb seasoning and black pepper. Stir in chicken broth; bring to a boil. Add pasta and stir gently. Reduce heat to medium and cover pan with lid. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes, stirring once. Add chicken, broccoli, red bell pepper (if desired) and cream cheese; stirring to combine. Reduce heat to low, cover and continue cooking for 5 to 7 minutes or until chicken is cooked through and vegetables are tender.
  3. Step 3) Stir in Parmesan cheese until melted and sauce has thickened. Serve immediately.
