"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." — Kristin

broccoli, cut into florets
What a great, easy idea for brocolli. I loved the flavor, but found that the brocolli was pretty tough. The next time I cook brocolli this way (and it will now be a favororite method) I plan on tenting it with foil to keep it a bit moister.
A good way to cook broccoli. Very easy and practical. I wish allrecipes.com had half-star ratings so my husband and I could split the difference. He gave it a lower rating (3 stars) as it is a bit fatty cooked in the chicken drippings. I would've given it 4 stars but I gave in to his rating. I took the advice of another rater and left the broccoli in the oven longer (about 15 minutes or so) and that was great.
Ya, I know..it's my recipe, but I forgot something :) Don't forget to taste! It might need salt and pepper! Enjoy!
This truly is pure genius! The fresh garlic and drippings added just the right seasoning. I microwaved the broccoli for 2 minutes prior to adding to the pan which shortened the cooking time in the oven.
I cooked "Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style" (submitted by Sue Rogers on Allrecipes.com) and then cooked my broccoli using this recipe. The spices from the chicken mixed with the broccoli and garlic were phenomenal. The only problem I had it that my broccoli didn't get done anywere near the time suggested in recipe. Next time I will cook broccoli in microwave until it is almost done and then cook using this recipe. Thanks for a WONDERFUL EASY way to make broccoli special!!
This was a very easy recipe and will make my broccoli this way anytime I roast chicken! My kids loved it. I did add a bit of butter and a splash of water since there wasn't very much chicken drippings. (I used a store-bought roasted chicken and used the drippings from it and heated in the oven while I had another side cooking in the oven) It did take a bit longer than indicated. The temp was at 400 degrees and it took close to 20 mins.
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 crunchiness.
