1/2
cup julienne-cut carrots (from 10-oz bag)
Shredded fresh Parmesan cheese, 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.

Expert Tips

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.
