The Great Chicken Experiment Day 4

Here is another day of the chicken experiment. 
Today I am back on tract and making Chicken breast Alfredo with broccoli. 

Ingredients:
2 Tablespoon butter or margarine
2 Tablespoon flour
broccoli
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2 box fettuccine pasta
1/2 of a chicken breast

 I cooked the pasta according to the package directions.
I admit I didn't have any fettuccine pasta, so spaghetti had to do.
 Cut up the broccoli. If you don't have fresh
broccoli, then use frozen broccoli florets.
 I boiled my broccoli for about 2 minutes.
I wanted them still a little crunchy for the pasta.
If you are using frozen-follow the package instructions.
 I cut up the half of a chicken breast into slices and pan fried it.
 I drained the broccoli and pan fried it with the chicken for a minute.
 In another pan, I melted the 2 tablespoons of butter.
 After the butter was melted, I added the flour.
 I mixed in the butter and flour. This should be like a paste.
 Pour in the milk and cook on med-high heat.
 I whisked in the butter-flour mixture with the milk.
Cook this until it starts to bubble.
It should get thick enough that it coats a spoon. 
 Remove the pan from heat. Mix in the Parmesan cheese.
Give it a minute for the cheese to melt.
 Pour in your sauce with the chicken and broccoli.
Here is a delicious chicken pasta dish.

I have to admit, this was not the best dish I have made. It was good, but not great. My husband loved it and licked his plate-no joke. I liked it too, but it wasn't my usual delicious quality. I'm still on the fence about doing this dish again. What do you think?
