You may know of peppercorns as those little balls of sneeze that waiters grind-up for your salad, but you'll be reintroduced to them in this meal in a very special way. For these aren't your standard black peppercorns; like Kermit the Frog and the Incredible Hulk, these are as green as the grass is long. Whatever color, you'll taste their distinct flavor in a creamy sauce the enrobes the chicken to perfection. Speaking of green, the panko-covered broccoli provides a healthy side with flavor to match. You didn't know a color could be so delicious.
