  5. Once the chicken is cooked through, remove it from the pot, and set aside.

  6. Add the butter to the pot, and melt it. Once the butter is fully melted, add in the garlic and stir continuously for 10 seconds.

  7. Pour the heavy cream, salt, pepper, and nutmeg. Stir often, and cook until the sauce starts to bubble slightly.

  8. Once the sauce bubbles and begins to cook down, add in the parmesan cheese and stir until the sauce thickens. Add in the cooked chicken, pasta, and broccoli, and stir until fully combined.

  9. Top with parmesan cheese or red chili flakes, serve, and enjoy!
