Chicken and Broccoli Pasta with Cream Sauce, Gluten and Dairy free

Gluten and dairy free deliciousness.

The other night I had no idea what to make for dinner. Do you ever have those nights where a trip to the grocery store is over due and you have to get creative? On this particular evening my fridge was looking pretty bare. I did notice that I had my cashew cream with pulp that needed to be used. Because of this I decided on Chicken with a cashew cream sauce.

Chicken and broccoli in garlic cashew cream sauce, gluten and dairy free

Ingredients:

For the sauce:

  • 1 cup cashew cream with pulp, or cream of choice
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • a few tablespoons of  white wine (or broth)

Instructions:

  1. Cut your chicken into bite size pieces. I personally like to use thighs. Season with salt, pepper and granulated garlic.
  2. Prepare a pot of water and bring to a boil for your pasta. Cut broccoli and tomatoes into pieces and set aside.
  3. Heat skillet coated with olive oil over medium heat. Add chicken. Turn down to low heat.
  4. When chicken is almost cooked through you can add your broccoli. I added a dash of salt and pepper after adding the broccoli. Pour a splash of white wine or chicken broth onto skillet and cover with lid. Allow broccoli to steam.Chicken and Broccoli Pasta with Cream, Gluten and Dairy free.
