    Quick and easy chicken and broccoli with pineapple is sweet, savory and can be made in just 30 minutes.

    Preparation

    1.

    Steam the broccoli until crisp tender. Set aside.

    2.

    Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Melt the butter in the pan. Add the chicken tenders and cook until browned and cooked through. Add garlic and cook, stirring frequently until the garlic is softened.
