  • 1
    Season chicken with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and 1/4 teaspoon of the pepper.
  • 2
    In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken; cook 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is browned on both sides and cooked through. Remove chicken from skillet. Add onion; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Add garlic and lemon peel; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until fragrant.
  • 3
    Add broth; heat to boiling. Stir in pasta, carrots, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt and remaining 1/4 teaspoon pepper; reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook 11 minutes. Uncover; add asparagus and cooked chicken. Cover and cook 7 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is al dente and asparagus is just tender.
  • 4
    Stir in cubes of cream cheese, the Parmesan cheese and lemon juice until smooth. Add frozen peas; cook 1 to 2 minutes or until peas are heated through and sauce is creamy.
  • 5
    Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes. Sauce will continue to thicken as it stands.

Expert Tips

  • Boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces, can be substituted for the chicken tenders.
  • A sprinkling of chopped Italian (flat-leaf) parsley and additional grated Parmesan make a nice garnish to this dish.
