Chicken & Broccoli for One

It was just me eating tonight - I didn't want cereal, and I didn't want to go to the store - So I set out to see what I could find... I found pasta, a chicken breast, broccoli, red onion, and some garlic - I had dinner!

1 Chicken breast, cubed
1/4 Red Onion, chopped
2 Garlic cloves, bashed (skin removed)
1 Cup Broccoli
1 Cup Pasta, or more if you're really hungry
2 Tbsp Olive oil
2 tsp Herbs de Provence

Bring a pot of water to a boil and cook the pasta according to the package. Heat a saute pan to a medium heat and add the olive oil. Let the olive oil come to temperature then add the garlic. Fry the garlic for two minutes to flavor the oil, then remove and discard. Add the onion to the pan with a pinch of salt. Cook for 1 minute. Mix the chicken with the Herbs de Provence then add to the pan. Cook until the chicken is cooked all the way through - about 5 minutes or so. Once the chicken is done cooking add the broccoli and cook until it is tender. If you wish you can add a bit of fresh grated parm. Plate, Eat & Enjoy!

Happy Cooking & Eating!
