Chicken and Broccoli Saute
- Onions, medium - 1, chopped
- Broccoli - 1 lb, chopped

- Arrowroot powder - 2 tsp
- Oil, cooking - 1 Tbsp
- Hot sauce (opt) - for serving
- Onions / Broccoli / Bacon - Prep as directed. Store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Pre-cook broccoli - Place broccoli in a microwave-safe container. Cover with a damp paper towel and microwave until tender but still crunchy, 2 to 3 minutes. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Rotisserie chicken - (Skip if chicken was prepped ahead for Tuesday.) Take meat off the bone and shred. Use a knife and fork or your hands. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
- Make sauce - Mix together stock, aminos, mustard, red pepper flakes, and arrowroot powder.
- Heat a skillet or saute pan over medium-high heat. Add oil and then bacon and onions to the heated oil. Saute for ~5 minutes.
- Add chicken and saute until chicken is heated through, ~1 minute.
- Add sauce and broccoli to pan. Wait until sauce begins to bubble and then stir everything together. Continue cooking until sauce thickens and broccoli is heated through, ~2 minutes more.
- Season with some salt and pepper. Add some hot sauce if you’d like it spicy. Enjoy!
I actually made this without the broccoli or chicken to be used as a side dish and it was awesome!2 Helpful
Very hearty and tasty. Super easy to make. I could see where someone would want more spice, but it was really so good the way it was.0 Helpful
I love this method. Fewer steps and just as tasty as a traditional roux. My picky eater ate a whole bowl. Since some of the reviews mentioned a bit of blandness, I added a bit more mustard, some paprika, and a couple of slices of chopped bacon.0 Helpful
This was pretty good and reheated well for lunches, but I wish it had more kick - I used extra sharp cheddar to try to add as much flavor as possible and served with red pepper flakes, but it still seemed like it was missing something.0 Helpful
It’s ok, just bland. Would recommend adding some cayenne or spice to bump up the flavor.0 Helpful
Super super easy. Definitely add cayenne and/or red pepper flakes to your sauce base unless you have spice-averse or kids eating this dish. Cooked up beautifully and easily. Perfect for a busy and chilly weeknight.0 Helpful
WOW! Definitely heavier than I am used to, but really yummy. I will save this for a winter day.0 Helpful
