Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 1 cup of raw broccoli florets
  • 2 chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
  • ¼ cup butter
  • 1 tbsp garlic paste or puree
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 block of fontina cheese, shredded
  • 1 pint of heavy cream
  • ½ cup water
Instructions
  1. In a large skillet, add your fresh broccoli, chicken breast pieces, and ½ cup water.
  2. Cook on medium high heat for approximately 10 minutes, until chicken is cooked all the way through. The water should be completely evaporated, but if it isn't, drain the chicken and broccoli. You don't want the water to dilute your sauce.
  3. Remove the red wax from fontina cheese and shred.
  4. In a small pan, combine butter and garlic paste.
  5. Cook on low heat until the butter is melted.
  6. Add 1 cup parmesan cheese to butter mixture and stir.
  7. Add heavy cream and shredded fontina cheese and stir.
  8. Cook on medium low heat, stirring occasionally, until fontina cheese is completely melted into the sauce (approximately 15 minutes).
  9. Combine cheese sauce with chicken and broccoli.
  10. Serve.
