Printable Recipe: Chicken and Broccoli Pasta
I have recently discovered the delights of using Knorr side dishes to make delicious, and fast dinner entree recipes. They taste great and I can alter the ingredients to slim them down to suit my New Year’s desire to get more healthy.
I lightened it up by using skim milk and low fat sour cream, and I baked the bacon to reduce the fat by a huge amount.
Start by baking the bacon in the oven on a rack. Remove, and place on paper towels (although baking it means almost no grease.)
Place the chicken breasts in a non stick pan and cook about 5 minutes on each side until cooked through and slightly browned. Set aside and keep warm.
Add a package of Knorr Pasta Sides – Chicken and Broccoli flavor to the frying pan and add 1 1/2 cups of water and 1/2 cup of skim milk.
Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium and continue cooking for minutes.
Stir in the broccoli florets and cook another 2 minutes.
Stir in the low fat sour cream, combine well, and continue cooking for about 2 more minutes.
Return the chicken to the pan, coat with the sauce and cook another minute.
Serve by placing the pasta and broccoli on a plate. Top with the chicken and garnish with crumbled bacon and spring onions.This dish is perfect for busy week nights. It is done in about 30 minutes, including baking the bacon in the oven. Serve with a tossed salad and enjoy!
