Asian Chicken


Prep time: 10 minutes     Total: 25 minutes
Servings:    4 servings (2 cups each)


8     oz angel hair pasta, uncooked
2     cups broccoli florets (both fresh and frozen work well)
1     lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1/2  c. Kraft Asian toasted Sesame dressing
2     TBSP soy sauce
1/4  tsp. each ground ginger, garlic powder, crushed red pepper
1/3  c. chopped dry roasted peanuts (optional)

1.  Cook pasta as directed on package, adding broccoli to the boiling water for the last 3 minutes of the pasta cooking time.

2.  Meanwhile, spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 6-8 minutes or until cooked through, stirring and cutting into bite-sized pieces.  Stir in dressing, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and crushed red pepper; cook 1 minute, stirring occasionally.

3.  Drain pasta mixture; place in large bowl. Add chicken mixture; mix lightly. Spoon evenly into 4 serving bowls; sprinkle with the peanuts.

Note: For a family of 5, I double this recipe using 6 cups broccoli and 2 lbs of chicken.

Substitute: Use whatever vegetables you have on hand, such as snow peas, sliced bell peppers, sliced carrots or chopped red onions with or  instead of the broccoli.
