Other vegetable options you can add to this chicken recipe is spinach, potatoes, squash and zucchini.

The vegetable possibilities are endless and so are the starches that you can serve with the creamy garlic sauce. Rice and pasta are always the go-to starches, but you can also try quinoa, couscous and wild rice. Crusty bread is also another great option to dip into the sauce and soak it all up.

It’s divine!

Skillet Creamy Garlic Chicken with Broccoli

We used chicken breast for the recipe, but it can easily be made with chicken thighs or legs.


  • 2 pounds (910g) boneless chicken breasts
  • kosher or sea salt, to taste
  • fresh cracked black pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 4 tablespoons (60g)  butter, divided
  • 4-5 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 can (10 1/2 ounces - 298g) Condensed Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 3/4 cup (180ml) water
  • 2 to 3 cups (480-720ml) chopped broccoli
  • 1 teaspoon (10ml) chopped fresh parsley
  • lemon wedges, optional

Serve with rice or pasta


  1. Season chicken with salt, pepper and paprika. Set aside.
  2. Heat large pan on medium-high heat. Melt half the butter (2 tablespoons). Add the chicken and cook for 5 minutes on each side or until the chicken is browned. Remove chicken from pan, cover and keep warm.
  3. In same pan melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, add the garlic and cook until garlic is lightly brown and fragrant. Whisk in the condensed cream of chicken soup and water. Cook until the mixture is hot and bubbly, then turn heat down to low.
  4. Add chicken and broccoli back into the pan cover the pan with a lid and cook for about another 10 minutes or until chicken is almost cooked through. If you want more firm or al-dente broccoli, add the broccoli after the chicken is almost cooked so that the broccoli is more crunchy.
  5. Serve with rice or pasta and wedges of lemon. Garnish with chopped parsley.

    What could be used instead of consended soup? For someone who has to eat gluten free.

    Do you have the nutritional information?

    @ Mary Lou:
    Substitute Chicken stock for the condensed soup. I’m too lazy to go to the store just for one can of soup. It was the only ingredient I was missing and this meal without the soup, still tasted great. Gave it a rich chicken-flavor.

      Great idea using chicken stock instead of this sodium heavy soup. Maybe stir in a little yogurt for the creamy part. I’m making it tonight.

      I made this tonight but since hubby doesn’t like broccoli I substituted canned green beans! It was very tasty!

    This was SUPER DELICIOUS!! Easy to make and even the kiddos ate it up! Hubby said this is a keeper!!

    I wasn’t expecting great things from this recipe…I just wanted something quick and easy that included ingredients I already had on hand. But let me tell ya, it was DELICIOUS! I made it exactly according to the recipe. My 11 year old son is super picky, and getting him to eat is a nightmare, but he really enjoyed this. This is definitely going into our regular dinner rotation. Thanks for sharing this!!

    Can you do this in the crackpot?

      Hi Tonya,

      We haven’t tried it in a crackpot or a crockpot yet. If you do, please let us know how it turned out for you. Thanks!
