Creamy Chicken Primavera Pasta Recipe

Are you tired of making the same old, same old chicken dish for your family dinner? Are you looking for a simple recipe that doesn't require the use of your oven and won't take you all day to make? If so, you've got to try out this recipe that I recently made! I found it on the back of a package of Knorr Pasta Sides ~ Creamy Chicken Flavor. The entire recipe is made on the stove-top and it will make 4 servings.

I'm really busy on the weeknights, so I elected to cook up my chicken the night before, left it cool and then I placed it into the refrigerator on a Sunday evening. When Monday evening rolled around, this recipe took me about 15-20 minutes to fully make and it was HOT and on the table. Don't want to cook up your chicken ahead of time? Then follow the recipe instructions below. In addition, Once I had the chicken fully cooked, I chopped it up into bite-size pieces.

Creamy Chicken Primavera Pasta Recipe

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced
2 tbsp. butter
1 small clove of garlic, finely chopped
1 3/4 cups water
1/2 cup milk
1 pkg. (10 oz.) frozen mixed vegetables
1 pkg. Knorr Pasta Sides Creamy Chicken Flavor
1/4 cup loosely packed basil leaves, thinly sliced
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

Season the chicken with salt and ground black pepper, if desired. Melt butter in a nonstick skillet over medium heat and cook chicken stirring occasionally, until the chicken is thoroughly cooked, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken and set aside.

Stir the finely chopped garlic into skillet and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in water, milk and the mixed vegetables and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in Knorr Pasta Sides - Creamy Chicken Flavor and continue boiling over medium heat, stirring occasionally, 8 minutes or until the pasta is tender.

Stir in the seasoned & cooked chicken, heat through. Stir in the freshly chopped basil and sprinkle with the grated Parmesan cheese. Serve immediately.
