Recipe Ingredients for Chicken Asparagus and Pasta

16 ounce Garden Rotini Pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
3/4 lb skinless, boneless chicken breast halves - cut into cubes
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 lb slender asparagus spears, trimmed, cut on diagonal into 1-inch pieces
2 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Chicken Asparagus and Pasta

  1. Bring a large pot of water to boil. Add pasta, and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, and set aside.

  2. Warm 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in chicken, and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook until chicken is cooked through and browned, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken to paper towels.

  3. Pour chicken broth into the skillet. Then stir in asparagus, garlic, and a pinch more garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cover, and steam until the asparagus is just tender, about 5 to 10 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet, and warm through.

  4. Stir chicken mixture into pasta, and mix well. Let sit about 5 minutes. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
