Anything is good, in moderation. I cook because I love to and because I can share with those around me. I crochet for the same reason.

Do what you want to do, enjoy what you do and use it to touch those around you.

Chicken and Broccoli Pasta

This is a great meal for carb loading before a long walk or strenuous activity.

  1 Tbl olive oil                                                                          3 Cups broccoli
  6 chicken thighs                                                                      1/2 Cup hot water
  3 Garlic Clove, Minced                                                            8 Ounce Whole Wheat Pasta
  1 1/2 Tsp Dried Thyme                                                           1/4 Cup Grated Parmesan
  1/2 Tsp crushed red pepper                                                     Salt to taste

Bone and skin chicken thighs, cut meat into bite sized pieces.  Cut the broccoli, stems and all, into pieces.  Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook pasta to package directions.  While that is working, heat olive oil in a nonstick pan. Add chicken and cook over medium heat 6 to 8 minutes, until lightly browned. Add garlic, thyme and red pepper and cook 30 seconds more. Remove chicken from pan and keep warm.  Add broccoli to pan and saute for 30 seconds. Add 1/2 cup hot water and cover.   Cook about 4 minutes, until broccoli is slightly soft. Drain pasta, stir in all other ingredients and serve.
