Chicken and Broccoli Almost Alfredo

This sauce isn't really an alfredo sauce......but it is along the same lines!  It's healthier though!

2-3 chicken breasts, cooked and diced
2 cups cooked broccoli
8 oz small pasta (rotini, shells, bowtie, etc.)
Onion and Garlic (I just use a small amount of both, can omit too)
2 TB flour
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup milk (regular or almond)
1/4 cup plain yogurt
3/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions.  Drain and set aside.

Heat oil in skillet and cook garlic and onions for about 1 min.  Add in flour and whisk together.  Slowly whisk in chicken broth, then milk.  Turn heat to low and simmer until thickened, 3-5 min.  Stir in parmesan cheese until melted.  Turn off heat.  Add chicken to sauce.  Pour sauce mixture over cooked pasta.  Add cooked broccoli.  Can add water/milk if it's too thick.  Serves 4-5.
