With frozen chicken nuggets and refrigerated fettuccine, even busy cooks can prepare a 20-minute meal.

Updated September 7, 2010

Ingredients

  • 1
    package (12 oz) frozen southern-style chicken nuggets
  • 1
    package (9 oz) refrigerated fettuccine
  • 1
    can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen diced tomatoes with Italian herbs, undrained
  • 1
    can (15 oz) tomato sauce
  • 2
    tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
  • 2
    tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 400°F. Bake chicken nuggets as directed on package.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, cook and drain fettuccine as directed on package. Leave fettuccine in colander after draining. In same saucepan, heat tomatoes and tomato sauce over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until thoroughly heated.
  • 3
    Add fettuccine, chicken and parsley to tomato sauce; toss to coat. (If desired, cut chicken nuggets in half.) Sprinkle with cheese.

  • If you've purchased breaded chicken breast fillets instead of the nuggets, go ahead and bake them, then cut into pieces just before tossing with the fettuccine.
  • Refrigerated pasta cooks more quickly than the dried variety, so follow the directions on the package carefully.
