A broccoli and chicken main dish that's easy to prepare and flavorful, a meal in itself.
  • 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 1 tbsp dark chili powder
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1½ lbs fresh broccoli, broken into florets
  • 4 large garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • ¼ c. water
  • ½ cup diced green chile
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  1. Cut the chicken up into bite sized pieces no more than ½ inch thick and coat with the dark chili powder (you can freeze this in portions).
  2. In a very large skillet, heat 2 tbsp of olive oil and add the chicken. Sear lightly for 2-3 minutes, stirring on high heat, then turn down to medium high and add the garlic, broccoli and remaining tbsp of olive oil.
  3. Stir and cook for another 2-3 minutes, then stir in the water. Turn down to medium low, add the green chiles, cover, and cook about 5-7 minutes until chicken is fully cooked and broccoli is just tender.
  4. Turn heat off, add salt and pepper to taste, sprinkle with lemon juice, and serve.
  5. Enjoy!
