Today’s Menu: Mediterranean Chicken with Angel Hair Pasta w/ Whole Grain Bread
For dinner tonight I prepared Good Earth Mediterranean Chicken with Angel Hair Pasta. It had been quite a while since I had made any of the Good Earth Dinners and The Mediterranean Chicken with Angel Hair Pasta sounded right. With any of the Good Earth Dinners you just add the meat, and 1/4 cup milk and the rest is included in the Dinner. Boil your pasta and while that’s boiling fry your prepare your Chicken. The Dinner Kit includes the flour and creamy sauce for the Chicken. When everything is ready drain your pasta. Then serve the chicken and sauce over pasta, or toss with pasta (sauce will thicken as it stands). That’s it I had one delicious Mediterranean Chicken with Angel Hair Pasta Dinner! I also had Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread and a bottle of Lemon Tea Diet Snapple. For dessert later I made more loaves of Pillsbury Nut Quick Bread. I’ll have a slice of that along with a scoop of Breyer’s Carb Smart Vanilla Ice Cream.
Mediterranean Chicken with Angel Hair Pasta
100% Whole Grain Angel Hair Pasta
Creamy Sauce with Olive Oil
Mediterranean Seasoning with Tomatoes
Seasoned Whole Wheat Flour
YOU WILL NEED
1 Lb Uncooked Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts
2 Tablespoons Olive Oil • 1 Cup Hot Water • 1/4 Cup Milk
READY IN ABOUT 20 MINUTES!
1. Fill 2-quart saucepan 2/3 full of water.* Heat to boiling; stir in Pasta. Gently boil uncovered 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
While water is heating and pasta is cooking, continue with step 2.
2. Cut each chicken breast into 3 or 4 slices, holding knife at an angle. Empty Seasoned Flour into medium bowl or food-storage plastic bag. Coat chicken with flour. Heat oil in 10-inch nonstick** skillet over medium-high heat. Carefully add chicken and any remaining flour to hot oil; cook 2 to 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown.
3. Reduce heat to medium. Carefully stir in hot water, milk, Creamy Sauce and Mediterranean Seasoning until well blended. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally. Simmer uncovered about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center (sauce will be thin).
4. Drain pasta. Serve chicken and sauce over pasta, or toss with pasta (sauce will thicken as it stands). Refrigerate leftovers.
*Add 1 tablespoon oil to boiling water before adding pasta to prevent sticking.
**If using skillet without nonstick finish, increase oil to 3 tablespoons.
