Zesty Chicken & Pasta

This is one of my favorite dishes. There's not a heavy sauce that you typically have with pasta dishes, so the flavor of the chicken and vegetables really shines. Plus, this is a combination of several of my absolute favorite things.


1/2 box mini farfalle pasta (about 8 oz)
1/2 cup Zesty Italian Dressing, divided
1-2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
2 cups small broccoli florets
1 large red pepper, chopped
1 small onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup Parmesan or Italian Cheese


Cook pasta as directed on package.

Meanwhile, heat ¼ cup dressing in large skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken, season with salt and pepper, and cook and stir until done and starting to brown.

Add vegetables; cook 5 min. or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.

Drain pasta; toss into chicken mixture and remaining dressing. Top with cheese.


This one is super easy to adjust quanity, so it's a great one for meal prep. Tonight, I upped the pasta to 13 oz uncooked. That gave me leftovers to make 2-3 lunches for the week.
