Garlic Chicken and Broccoli

Here's a yummy and easy new recipe for you to try. :) This was the first time we made it and everyone liked it.  Joshua and Abby both had seconds and practically licked their bowls clean. LOL 

Garlic chicken and broccoli

Makes 4 servings @ 4 WW points each (about 1 cup each serving)

2 tsp olive oil
2 chicken breasts (skinless, boneless)
Dried thyme (about 1 tsp), salt and pepper to taste
6 garlic cloves, chopped up
4 cups of chopped fresh broccoli
1 can (or about 2 cups) fat free chicken broth (I used low sodium)
1 ½ TBS cornstarch

1. Season chicken with thyme, salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add chicken to skillet and brown on both sides.
2. Add garlic to skillet and cook for about 1 minute. Pour half of the broth into the pan. Cover, reduce the heat and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.
3. Remove chicken and set aside. Add broccoli to the pan, cover and cook for about 5 -8 minutes or until it is cooked how you like it (we like it on the firmer side.) While the broccoli cooks, chop up the chicken then add it back into the pan.
4. Mix the cornstarch with the rest of the broth and add it to the skillet. Simmer until the sauce is thickened (should only take a couple of minutes.) 

Serve over rice (extra points).
