Rigatoni with Chicken and Broccoli



Rigatoni is a tube shape pasta which I used to make this delicious and simple dish.  You can use leftover chicken for this dish instead of grilled or cooked chicken.   The Rigatoni is combined with broccoli, sundried tomatoes, coriander and a squeeze of lemon.


4½ cups rigatoni

400g grilled chicken

400g broccoli florets

40g sundried tomatoes

2 tbsp. oil

1 lemon

2-3 tbsp. coriander



If you are not using leftover chicken. Preheat oven to 200°C.

Season the chicken with  Italian herbs, salt and pepper.  Grill chicken for 25-30 minutes or until cooked. (Use 1 tsp. of Italian herbs.)

Cook Pasta according to packet instructions.

Boil Broccoli in boiling water for 3-5 minutes then refresh in cold water and then drain.

Chop sundried tomatoes and coriander and add to a bowl with the broccoli and Pasta.  Squeeze lemon and season with salt and pepper.
