Speedy Chicken Stir-Fry

We had this for dinner tonight. I got it from the Kraft's Food & Family book. You should subscribe to this if you don't get it--it's free--and it has really yummy and delicious recipes that are realistic for a family (not too difficult or over the top exotic). This gets added to our meal rotation for sure.


ingredients:
8 oz. angel hair pasta (capellini), uncooked
2 cups broccoli florets
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1/2 cup Kraft Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing (you wont be sorry you bought this ingredient--it's fabulous)
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. each ground ginger, garlic powder, crushed red pepper
1/3 cup chopped Planters Dry Roasted Peanuts (we used some cashews)
Sesame Seeds (this was our own little add in)

directions:
Cook pasta as directed on package, adding broccoli to the boiling water for the last 3 minutes of the pasta cooking time.
Meanwhile, spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 6-8 minutes or until cooked through, stirring occasionally. Stir in dressing, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and crushed red pepper; cook 1 minute; stirring occasionally.
Drain pasta mixture; place in large bowl. Add chicken mixture; mix lightly. Spoon evenly into 4 serving bowls; sprinkle with the nuts.
Makes 4 servings, 2 cups each.
Substitute: Use whatever vegetables you have on hand, such as snow peas, sliced bell peppers, sliced carrots or chopped red onions, instead of broccoli.
