Italian dinner ready in 25 minutes! Let Chicken Helper® and frozen vegetables speed up your preparation of this beautiful dinner meal.
Updated Oct 19, 2016

Ingredients

  • 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 Frozen Broccoli Cuts
  • 1 cup frozen sweet peas
  • 1/2 cup julienne-cut carrots (from 10-oz bag)
  • Shredded fresh Parmesan cheese, if desired
  • Fresh basil leaves, if desired

Steps

  • 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.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    You can use other colorful vegetables for this beautiful dish--try green beans or diced red bell pepper instead of the broccoli or peas.
  • tip 2
    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.
