1
lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
2
tablespoons margarine or butter
2 1/2
cups milk
1 1/2
cups hot water
1
box Chicken Helper® fettuccine Alfredo
2
cups Green Giant® frozen broccoli cuts
1

1/2
cup julienne-cut carrots (from 10-oz bag)
Shredded fresh Parmesan cheese, if desired
Fresh basil leaves, if desired
  1. Cut chicken into 1/2-inch pieces. In 12-inch skillet, melt margarine over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until outsides turn white.
  2. Stir in milk, hot water, sauce mix and uncooked pasta (from Chicken Helper box). Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
  3. Reduce heat. Cover and simmer 6 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. Stir in frozen broccoli, frozen peas and the carrots. Return to boiling. Reduce heat. Cover; simmer 4 to 6 minutes longer or until pasta and vegetables are tender. Remove from heat; uncover (sauce will thicken as it stands). Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Garnish with basil leaves.

You can use other colorful vegetables for this beautiful dish--try green beans or diced red bell pepper instead of the broccoli or peas.
You can use 3 cups cut-up deli rotisserie chicken instead of the uncooked chicken breasts. Decrease margarine to 1 tablespoon. Melt margarine in skillet and continue with step 2, adding rotisserie chicken with the milk. Continue as directed.
