  • 1
    Cook and drain fettuccine as directed on package.
  • 2
    While fettuccine is cooking, spray 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium heat. Cook chicken and salt in skillet 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is brown. Stir in frozen green beans. Cover and cook over medium heat 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beans are crisp-tender.
  • 3
    Mix orange juice and cornstarch until smooth. Stir orange juice mixture, marmalade and cherries into chicken mixture. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beans are tender and chicken is no longer pink in center. Add fettuccine to chicken mixture; toss. Sprinkle each serving with walnuts.

Expert Tips

  • Bake nuts uncovered in ungreased shallow pan in a 350° oven about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until golden brown. Or cook in ungreased heavy skillet over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
  • Boneless chicken breast for stir-fry is available in most larger grocery stores, but if you can't find it, cut boneless, skinless chicken breast halves into thin strips.
