Chicken, Broccoli, & Rice

 Large recipe!
  • 4 chicken breast halves, cubed
  • 3 cloves garlic, mashed/chopped
  • 2 red bell peppers, seeded, cut into chunks
  • 2 large onions, cut into chunks
  • 32 oz. bag frozen broccoli florets
  • 3 T. olive oil
  • ¼ t. oregano
  • 1 t. basil
  • 1 t. parsley
  • ½ -1 c. chicken broth or water
In large pan, (I use a large 4 qt pan - the one I used for the deer stew) slightly boil frozen chicken just enough so you can cut it into cubes.  Discard all but 1 c. broth.  Heat oil in pan, add chicken, garlic, and other spices.  Lightly salt chicken.
While chicken is browning, cut up red peppers and onions.  Add to pan.  When chicken is brown enough, add at least 1/2 c. broth or water, and pour 32 oz bag of broccoli into pan.  Stir, pushing broccoli to the bottom of the pan.  Bring to a boil, cover and turn down to medium to cook broccoli for about 8 - 10 minutes, or until broccoli is tender.
Serve over white or brown rice, with rolls brushed with garlic butter.
Of course I had to make oven potatoes for those who didn't want rice.  =)
