Five ingredients, 30 minutes and you've got a delicious chicken and pasta dinner!
lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 3/4- to 1-inch pieces
small red onion, cut into thin wedges
cups uncooked fusilli (corkscrew) pasta (about 6 oz)
bag (19 oz) frozen stir-fry Szechuan meal starter
Spray 12-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Add chicken and onion; stir-fry 3 to 5 minutes or until chicken is light brown.
Stir in water; heat to boiling. Stir in pasta. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is almost tender (do not drain).
Stir in contents of meal starter bag. Reduce heat to medium; cover and cook 8 to 9 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender and sauce chips are melted.
For an additional time-saver, look for already sliced chicken breast strips in the meat aisle (the package may be labeled "chicken for stir-fry"). You'll need about 1/2 pound of strips for this recipe.
