Broccoli in Roast Chicken Drippings


"Split breast chicken roasted with my favorite seasonings blend, taken out of the oven to rest. In its place, fresh broccoli spears and sliced garlic roasted until tender. Pure laziness, pure genius."

  1. After roasting a chicken, remove it from the roasting pan and place on a serving tray to rest. Leave the oven on. Pour off excess drippings from the roasting pan, leaving just enough to coat the broccoli. Toss broccoli and garlic in the drippings until coated and place in the still hot oven. Roast for 5 to 8 minutes, until tender.

  • Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

So good Kristin! Added a few more seasonings and roasted the broccoli longer than suggested. Some parts were even a little crispy which made it especially delish. Thank you!

This recipe sounded way too easy to be so good, but AllRecipes ratings never lie! It was excellent. The longer you cook, the softer the broccoli gets, so I taste test occasionally for crunchines...

I added some chopped garlic to the pan drippings prior to tossing in brocolli. It was delicious!
