Chicken & Pasta Toss with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Posted on

I wasn’t a real big fan of this dish. I think it was the sun-dried tomatoes that didn’t good to me. Maybe I’ll swap those out if I try this dish again.

Ingredients:

1 pkg. (16 oz.) bow tie pasta, uncooked
4 cups  broccoli florets
1-1/2 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
1 cup  Italian dressing
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes in olive oil, cut into strips
1/2 cup  Grated Parmesan Cheese
Directions:

1. COOK pasta as directed on pkg., adding broccoli to the cooking water for the last 3 min. of the pasta cooking time.

2. MEANWHILE, cook chicken in 1/4 cup of the dressing in large skillet on medium heat 8 min. or until chicken is cooked through, stirring frequently.

3. DRAIN pasta mixture; place in large bowl. Add chicken and all remaining ingredients; mix lightly.

Serves 8.

Easy Teriyaki Chicken and Brown Rice

Posted on

I loved this dish! So easy and so delicious! The only change is that I added the entire bottle of teriyaki sauce! I’m not sure why 1/3 cup didn’t cut it, but I kept adding the sauce until it had the taste I wanted, and by the time I was done, the entire bottle was gone!

Ingredients:

1 Tbsp. oil
1 lb.  boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into strips
1-1/2 cups water
1/3 cup  teriyaki sauce
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 cups  instant brown rice, uncooked
2 cups frozen broccoli florets
1/3 cup salted peanuts
Directions:

1. HEAT oil in large nonstick skillet on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook and stir 5 to 7 min. or until done.

2. ADD next 3 ingredients; stir. Bring to boil.

3. STIR in remaining ingredients; cover. Cook on low heat 5 min. Remove from heat. Let stand 5 min. Fluff with fork.

Serves 4.
