You will love this Creamy Sundried Tomato Broccoli Chicken Pasta! Perfect for a quick weeknight meal that will please everyone at the table.
This is no secret but I will literally eat anything with a cream sauce. Like ANYTHING. I would probably eat a sock if it had cream sauce on it. It’s so easy to make too, and there are a ton of different ways to make a cream sauce. For this Creamy Sundried Tomato Broccoli Chicken Pasta, I used a super simple method that doesn’t require any prep work or additional cooking, so anyone can do it.
The ingredients for this dish are also pretty simple and don’t require a lot of prep work, so this comes together pretty fast. You really just have to make sure the broccoli is cut into small enough pieces.
I also just love the fresh basil and lemon in this dish. If you don’t currently use fresh lemon juice and zest in pasta dishes, you definitely will after this. It adds this amazing tanginess that you just don’t get from bottled lemon juice. I’m a little obsessed with adding lemon zest to like everything I cook now.
I like to use rigatoni when I make this dish, the large noodles help to grab the sauce and hold everything together really well. You can definitely just use whatever pasta you have on hand though, any type would work just fine. I used regular rigatoni but feel free to use whole wheat if you prefer. I actually use whole wheat pasta normally but this made for prettier pictures 🙂
You can see from this picture, the sauce is minimal. This keeps the dish pretty light despite using heaving cream and it doesn’t drown out the flavors of the broccoli and the chicken. I didn’t cut my chicken up before adding it back to the sauce but you certainly can. Make this Creamy Sundried Tomato Broccoli Chicken Pasta your own!
