Incredible and easy

I used a rotisserie chicken and steamed my broccoli so it was pretty fast. Its a great way to use up your home grown tomatoes. I would consider adding some grilled yellow onion but just fantastic as described. I added a little less pepper.

tons of flavor and super healthy

Packed with Flavor

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this recipe. I have made it 3x now, and learned a few helpful things along the way:

1. Use a rotisserie chicken; no clean up and you have chicken left over for salads or other meals afterward
2. DON'T use a non-stick pan for the tomatoes. I tried this the 2nd time b/c the stainless steel pan was so hard to clean the 1st time, but you don't get all of the good charred bits when using non-stick, and the tomatoes simply don't "char" well.
3. Steam the broccoli so it's slightly more firm than you would like it. It will continue to soften as it sits to cool, but if it's too soft, it gets mushy and falls apart when you stir the dish up.

This dish is packed with flavor, and so yummy and fresh tasting. And you can't beat a 3-ingredient recipe (assuming you have the lemons, chili powder and olive oil, which to us are staples). This is staying in my pile of favorites!!

Cheap, makes enough for leftovers, healthy

If you're going for healthy,

If you're going for healthy, please skip the rotisserie chicken. They inject those with salt water and worse.

I used pre-roasted chicken from the supermarket, which I shredded into a bowl. I sauteed the broccoli with a bit of olive oil in a deep skillet until slightly charred and added a package of grape tomatoes until the skins split. Dumped the veg into a bowl with the shredded chicken and used the same skillet to make the dressing. Another night we added some store bought cheese tortellini, which we cooked and added to the salad for carbs and it was excellent.

I have made this numerous times and find that roasting the broccoli, tomatoes, and an onion cut into wedges on a baking sheet until charred works really well, too.

I wasn't too crazy about the recipe. I made it, but the flavors didn't blend well enough for me.
