 I make this chicken and broccoli dish for the Chief Taster when he is in the need of a chicken comfort dish and I don’t want to spend a long time in the kitchen.   It is simple enough that he could cook it himself too for the next time I am off the island.  Although we both know he is more like to stop off at a chicken take-away restaurant!


Although I have specified bacon in this recipe, I use turkey bacon as the husband does not eat pork.  A few times I have added fresh basil to the recipe too which was well received.   The addition of bacon (in whatever form) makes this almost a version of carbonara sauce without the eggs.

Easy Chicken Recipe

I almost did not share this recipe as it’s such an easy recipe to make but the Chief Taster insisted it was blog worthy based on flavour alone.  I like how the cream cheese melted makes an easy low carb cheese sauce.  You could add other cheese to this chicken broccoli dish but I’ve only added Parmesan.   Perhaps a strong stilton cheese for extra flavour.

I have made many variations of this easy skillet recipe depending upon what vegetables I have in the fridge.  I’ve replaced the broccoli with spinach and sliced zucchini.  I’ve also served this over cooked zucchini noodles too.   Either way this is made, it’s still a tasty, fuss free and easy chicken dish!
