Wok's For Dinner: Chicken Angel Hair Pasta

I ended up working late tonight (seems to be a reoccurring theme lately), so hubs tried his best to get started on supper to help me out. So sweet! How I love him so. :) I do not use Alfredo sauce in my recipe, but hubs pulled it out of the cupboard, so I took the hint that he wanted the Alfredo sauce. Not a problem. It's a very rare treat that I make anything with Alfredo, so I didn't put up a fuss and allowed it for this meal, especially considering that my hubbie pulled all the ingredients out so they'd be ready for me to put it all together when I got home.

Chicken Angel Hair Pasta (with Alfredo sauce)

1 Tbsp olive oil
2 chicken breast halves, cooked and shredded or cut in 1-inch cubes
1-2 carrots, sliced into 1/4-inch pieces
1 pkg (10oz) frozen broccoli
1 clove garlic, minced, or 1/2 Tbsp garlic powder
12oz angel hair pasta or spaghetti
2/3 cup pasta water or chicken broth or 1 bottle Alfredo sauce (we used the Alfredo tonight)
1 tsp lemon juice
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
ground black pepper, to taste

Heat olive oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Begin heating water for pasta; cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, add carrot to skillet; cook, stirring for 3-4 minutes. Add broccoli and minced garlic or garlic powder to skillet; cook, stirring, for 2-4 minutes longer. Add chicken broth / pasta water or Alfredo sauce. Stir in lemon juice and cooked chicken. Reduce heat and simmer for 4 minutes. Drain pasta; stir into chicken mixture. Serve immediately with grated Parmesan and ground black peppper.

  1. Sounds delicious either way, but I would need to lay off the Alfredo sauce myself. I'm looking forward to seeing what you have to say for Crock Pot Wednesday this week. Mister Linky is up and ready for your link. Thanks so much for joining me.
