Angel Hair Pasta with Herbed Chicken

1 Comment

I found this easy recipe in the newspaper when we lived in NYC and I just rediscovered it again. I used dry angel hair ~ just boiling it while I started the recipe. I don’t dice the chicken as the recipe originally called for ~ I just chunk it up.


Angel Hair Pasta with Herbed Chicken

1 teaspoon olive oil
2 tablespoons onions, finely chopped
1 carrot, diced small
3 boneless chicken breasts, cut  in cubes
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon oregano
1/8 teaspoon thyme
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 1/2 cups broccoli florets, small
12 ounces evaporated skim milk
9 ounces fresh angel hair pasta
3/4 cup parmesan cheese

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet. Add onion and carrot and saute over med heat until onion is soft, not brown, about 5 minutes. Add some water if it seems dry.

Add chicken to pan and saute just until no longer pink, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with basil, oregano, thyme and pepper. Add broccoli, cover and steam for 5 minutes. Stir in milk and warm but do not boil.

Meanwhile, boil water for pasta and cook according to pkg. directions; drain well. Stir pasta into sauce mix then add cheese.
Cover pan for 3-5 minutes or until sauce has thickened slightly. Serve immediately.

Makes 4 servings.


Happy Cooking!
