Recipe Cost for 4 People: $9.54 ($2.38/serving)*
Preparation Time: 30 minutes
  • 4 boneless chicken breasts (about 1 pound)
  • 2 tbsp garlic and herb blend (like Mrs. Dash)
  • 2 tbsp Country Crock® Spread, divided
  • ½ cup water
  • 4 cups fresh broccoli florets
  • 2 oranges, sliced
Coat chicken breasts with herb blend. Melt 1 tbsp Country Crock® Spread over medium heat in a 12″ skillet (with lid – for cooking broccoli). Add the coated chicken and brown on both sides. Reduce heat slightly, and cook chicken until done, turning a couple times. Remove chicken from skillet; add water and broccoli to skillet, cover with lid. Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover, and simmer about 3 minutes until broccoli is slightly tender, yet still bright green. For each individual plate, place 1 chicken breast on plate and garnish with orange slices. Mound broccoli next to chicken and dab with remaining Country Crock® Spread.
