I never get tired of recipes like this.
Fast to throw together with easy clean up.
It was delicious!
I was going to call it Cheesy Chicken Artichoke & Broccoli.... but
I didn't want to give the wrong impression.
It has just enough cheese to pull it all together and add another level of flavor,
but not enough to add a lot of extra fat and calories.

Pinch of red pepper flakes
