Make

  1. 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.

  2. Add chicken and saute until chicken is heated through, ~1 minute.

  3. 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.

  4. Season with some salt and pepper. Add some hot sauce if you’d like it spicy. Enjoy!

I made this for a dinner party and all 13 guests enjoyed it. Very easy in two big pots.

Easy to throw together. Mine was a little thick because I forgot to save the pasta water, of course. Looking forward to the leftovers.

Maybe it was because I did not have high expectations and did not expect to like this at all, but I found it very delicious and extremely in a category of a comfort food. Thoroughly enjoyed every bite and I'm looking forward to the leftovers.
