About this recipe: Chicken and broccoli make a delicious pairing in a tomato-garlic sauce. Penne or shells work well, as they soak up the sauce.
Followed recipe to the letter but it turned out rather bland! I seasoned it well but it tasted like it was lacking something. As I'm the first to review, I don't want to put off others trying it as it was very easy to put together. So c'mon cooks try it and see what you think. As I said I made it exactly as instructed. - 23 May 2010
Ditto the first review. Tasted bland so had to grate more cheese on top to flavour it a bit more. Won't do this one again - 26 May 2015
I agree that this recipe needed something. I prepared it by browning the chicken, then added the onions and lots of garlic, cooked it until the onions were soft, then added the brocolli and 1/2 cup of chicken broth. (The chicken broth helps take away the natural bitterness of the brocolli). I then added a 24 oz. can of crushed tomatoes, basil, oregano, parmesan cheese, and a cup of dry red wine. I then let it simmer for 30 minutes and tossed with rigatoni. Turned out very well and I would definitely make it again! - 01 May 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
