Fettuccine With Chicken and Broccoli Rabe

So, the Veal and Twice baked potatoes I was going to make last night I decided to wait and make this Saturday instead, so those recipes are coming later. Tonight I made "Fettuccine With Chicken and Broccoli Rabe," from a Weight Watcher's cookbook (the picture above is said book cover, and the dish on the cover is this one). I was not able to find Broccoli Rabe, but did find Broccolini (neither is a form of broccoli, and they aren't that similar to each other...but the broccolini worked fine in the dish). John and I both thought it was good; I definitely will make it again. Here is the recipe:

  • 1 bunch broccoli rabe, cleaned and chopped
  • 6 ounces spinach fettuccine
  • 4 tsp olive oil, divided
  • 4 (4 oz) boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp tried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 onion, thinly sliced and separated into rings (I just used onion powder)
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 head radicchio, shredded
  • 2 tbs grated Parmesan
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  1. In a large pot of boiling water, cook the broccoli rabe 2 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl. In the boiling water, cook the fettuccine according to package directions; drain.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 tsps of the oil. Add the chicken, salt, oregano, and red pepper and saute until cooked through, 4-5 mins on each side. Transfer to plates
  3. In the skillet, heat the remaining 2 tsps oil; saute onions and garlic till tender, 3-4 mins. Stir in the broccoli rabe and radicchio; cook, stirring frequently, until tender, 4-5 minutes. Add the fettuccine, then sprinkle with the cheese and black pepper. Serve topped with the chicken and sprinkled with the basil.
