Ingredients

  • 2
    cups uncooked farfalle (bow-tie) pasta (4 ounces)
  • 1/4
    cup crushed butter-flavor crackers
  • 1
    teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1
    pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/4-inch strips
  • 2
    cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2
    cups frozen broccoli flowerets or broccoli cuts (from 1-pound bag), thawed and drained
  • 1
    cup chicken broth
  • 1/2
    cup fat-free (skim) milk
  • 2
    tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/8
    teaspoon pepper
  • 1
    can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed reduced-fat cream of chicken soup

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°. Spray rectangular baking dish, 13x9x2 inches, with cooking spray. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package.
  • 2
    While pasta is cooking, mix crushed crackers and lemon peel in small bowl; set aside. Spray 10-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook chicken and garlic in skillet 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until chicken is brown. Remove skillet from heat; stir in pasta and remaining ingredients. Spoon chicken mixture into baking dish. Sprinkle with crumb mixture.
  • 3
    Cover and bake 25 minutes. Uncover and bake 10 to 15 minutes longer or until hot and bubbly.

  • If you don’t have butter-flavor cracker crumbs, regular cracker crumbs or seasoned bread crumbs also work well in this recipe.
