1 – Select long baking dish for the angel hair pasta. Place two handfuls of pasta in the dish. Add one inch of chicken broth. Do not cover. Cook in microwave for 2 minutes on high; then cook for 5 minutes on one-half power. When finished cooking, cover to preserve warmth.

3 – Cut off large end of broccoli stalk. Break apart the remaining broccoli, leaving some stem. Season with salt, pepper, and olive oil. Cook, covered, for 4 minutes on high in the microwave.
4 – Nestle chicken in the onion/tomato sauce. Salt and pepper, and add a tiny bit of olive oil on top. Cook for 5 minutes on high.
5 – Serve the chicken and sauce on top of the pasta, with the broccoli as a side.
