This dish will inspire compliments for its taste and colorful appearance. This is my favorite recipe from the book "Quick Meals for Healthy Kids and Busy Parents". I serve this over egg noodles and my family loves it. I usually add more vegetables than the recipe calls for.... I just go by what looks good to me.
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup broccoli - chopped
1/2 cup onion - chopped
2 cloves garlic - minced
1 carrot - thinly sliced
1 celery stalk - thinly sliced
2 cups cooked chicken - cut up
16-oz. can chopped tomatoes
4 cups cooked pasta (any shape)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon parsley - optional
In large skillet over medium heat, heat oil. Stir-fry broccoli, onion, garlic, carrot, and celery. Add chicken and tomatoes. Cook until heated through, about 5 minutes.
While chicken is cooking, prepare pasta according to package directions.
Spoon chicken and vegetables over hot pasta. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese and parsley, if desired.
