Recipe Ingredients for Penne with Chicken and Asparagus

8 oz penne pasta
5 tbsp olive oil
3/4 lb boneless chicken breast halves
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup chicken broth
8 oz asparagus
1 clove garlic
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

Recipe Directions for Penne with Chicken and Asparagus

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

  2. Warm 3 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. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil, stir again, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
