Orecchiette with Chicken and Broccoli
You can add red peppers while sauteing the garlic for extra color and flavor. I also like to add a pinch of crushed red pepper to the garlic for a touch of heat.
Romano cheese can be used in place of Parmesan, if desired.
I prefer to brine 4 to 5 pounds of chicken in 1/2 cup kosher salt, 1/3 cup light brown sugar, and 1 gallon water for 1 hour before seasoning, and then grill or saute the chicken in olive oil. I shred it with my fingers after it cools and have plenty for several recipes.
