About the Recipe

a mildly spicy sauce complements this simple, but heavenly, chicken and pasta dish


1 C onion, finely chopped

1 Tbsp garlic, minced or pressed

(about 2�3 cloves)

4 C broccoli florets, rinsed

(about 1 lb)

1 Tbsp olive oil

8 oz very thinly sliced chicken

breast, cut into �-inch strips

1 jar (26 oz) no-salt-added pasta


� tsp ground cayenne pepper

� tsp salt

8 oz whole-wheat angel hair pasta

Cooking spray


1 In a 4-quart saucepan, bring 3 quarts of water to a

boil over high heat.

2 While the water heats, chop onion, mince garlic, and

cut broccoli into tiny florets. Set aside.

3 In a large nonstick pan, heat olive oil until very hot.

Add the chicken. Cook and stir until lightly browned

on both sides, about 5�8 minutes. Place chicken on a

clean plate, and cover to keep warm.

4 Coat pan with cooking spray. Over medium heat,

cook and stir the onion for about 3 minutes. Add the

garlic and broccoli. Cook and stir for 2 more minutes.

5 Return the chicken to the pan. Add entire jar of pasta

sauce, cayenne pepper, and salt. Gently mix to blend

ingredients. Cover. Simmer until chicken and

vegetables are warmed through, about 4 minutes.

6 Drop pasta into boiling water. Cook according to

package directions for the shortest recommended

time, about 2 minutes. Drain.

7 Divide pasta among four dinner plates (about 1 cup

each). Top each with one-fourth of the chicken and

sauce mixture. Serve immediately.
