  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water, and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Cook pasta in boiling water until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain well.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breast, and cook until browned on all sides, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and capers, and continue cooking until chicken is no longer pink in the center, about 5 minutes longer. Remove chicken from pan.
  3. Using the same pan, add asparagus, broccoli, mushrooms, and water to the juices remaining in the pan. Cover, and simmer until the broccoli and asparagus are tender. Layer pasta, chicken, and vegetables in a large platter or bowl to serve.

Make sure to use extra-virgin olive oil, and add some chopped garlic and fresh grated parmesean for added flavor. Delicious!

This dish is in serious need of seasoning, (salt, pepper, garlic, parmesan cheese, lemon zest). Some fresh herbs might be nice too. Otherwise it is great hot or cold.

This was the best chicken and broccoli Pasta that I have ever tried. I will definately be making this recipe again. Thanks.

Not enough "kick" for our taste. I added a small onion and a wee bit of instant boullion. I'm comparing it to one that had tarragon in it...which was an interesting ingredient.

Good and very healthy. I made it with whole wheat penne. This is basically a chicken piccata. I'd suggest the following: Cut the chicken into slices rather than cubes to make them bite-size. ...

First time I have ever really wanted to review a recipe!! I usually add my own twist to recipes, but I didn't really need to with this one!! I added roasted red peppers for color and it turned o...

I also added onion and a couple of cloves of garlic. I have made it twice now. Very delicious, but I think next time I make it i will also add some lemon zest.

Really needs "more"... used 1.5 lbs chicken, seasoned with montreal chicken seasoning, and cooked it in the oil with zest and juice of one lemon. Added onion and garlic with the veggies, as well...

Very fresh and flavorful. I didn't have broccoli so I added extra asparagus. I also added some chicken bouillon powder and garlic.
