Zesty Chicken and Pasta

This is the first new recipe I have made this week. I wasn’t sure if this one would be a success or not, because it is pretty healthy. Children tend to be suspicious of healthy meals especially if they include broccoli. I was pleasantly suprised when they ate it and didn’t complain. It wasn’t as popular with them as say the chicken rice caserole, but my husband and I loved it.


1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 c. Italian Dressing, divided
2 c. Broccoli florets (about 1 small bunch)
1/2 c. thinly sliced onions (I used chives and not as much as the recipe calls for)
1 1/4c. chopped red peppers (Green tasts good as well)
1 T. choped frsh parsley
1 pkg. (8 oz) spiral pasta, cooked, drained
1/4 c. grated Parmesan Cheese


Cook and stir chicken in 1/4 c. of the dressing in large skillet on medium-high heat 4 minutes or until no longer pink.

Addbroccoli, onions (chives), peppers, and parsley; cook until tender, stirring occasionally.

Toss with hot past and remaining 1/4 c. dressing. Sprinkle with cheese.
