Chicken Broccoli Alfredo, Chicken Roll Ups, Chicken Casserole, 2 cups diced cooked chicken

Chicken Broccoli Alfredo For One

1 leftover chicken breast
1 cup of cooked broccoli
oil and butter (about a tablespoon of each)
1/3 cup cream
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
3 garlic cloves- pressed or chopped fine

Cut up a leftover chicken breast into chunks. Melt butter and oil in pan and add chicken and garlic. Cook for a couple of minutes over med-high heat until it's hot but don't burn the garlic. Pour in about 1/3 cup of cream and sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over it. Stir to combine. Cook until hot and cheese is melted. If it doesn't look cheesy enough, add some more parmesan and it will get all cheesy and thicker. If it's too thick, add a little cream. Pour over chicken and broccoli.

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
