Once you get past cleaning and chopping up all of the broccoli, this is really very easy to put together. If you're in a time crunch, just use frozen broccoli. I've said it before, but I strongly dislike frozen broccoli because I feel I always end up biting into "woody" stem pieces and I hate that! So, it's fresh broccoli for me! I hope you decide to try this!

Chicken Shopping Tip

Buy whole chickens and ask the butcher to quarter them for you. You will save an average of $5 per pound, or more.

Chicken Cooking Tip

Allow meat to rest for at least ten minutes before slicing into it; otherwise, the juices will leak out.
