Chicken With Angel Hair Pasta

If your family loves pasta and you want them to eat more vegetables, here's a flavorful compromise everyone is sure to love.

Angel hair pasta with chicken-serves 4
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 12-oz package angel hair pasta
1 10-oz package broccoli florets
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 carrot
2/3 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp dried basil

Put the pasta on to cook. Cut the chicken into 1-inch pieces. Slice the carrot diagonally into 1/4-inch pieces.

Using medium heat, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and add garlic and chicken. Stir and fry until the chicken is cooked through, about 3-4 minutes. Transfer the chicken and garlic onto a paper towel. 

Then, add the carrot and 1 tablespoon olive oil to the drippings in the pan and cook for 3-4 minutes. Add the broccoli and cook to another 2 minutes or until the broccoli is slightly tender. Add the chicken, broth, cheeses and basil and stir well. Drain the pasta and serve with the chicken. Awesome!

I've had similar sauce at Bahama Breeze that had butter and lemon added. With this recipe, you'll be making a dish worthy of a high-end restaurant for a fraction of the cost.
