What to cook with chicken and broccoli
Melt the first 2 Tablespoons of butter in a pan, over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts to the pan and season them with the salt, pepper, and paprika.
Cook each side for about 5 minutes. You just want them to get brown, not cooked all the way through. Remove the chicken and set aside.
Add the remaining butter to the pan and brown up the garlic.
Whisk in the cream of chicken soup and water. Let it come to a simmer.
Turn the heat down to low and add the chicken and broccoli to the pan.
Cover and cook until the chicken is cooked through, about 10 minutes.
