Cooking Light APRIL 2003

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: about 1 3/4 cups)


  • 3 1/2 cups uncooked wide egg noodles (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 pound skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 bacon slices, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons bottled minced garlic
  • 1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 small head of escarole, cut into large pieces (about 3/4 pound)


Cook noodles according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.

While noodles cook, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and bacon to pan; cook for 5 minutes or until chicken is done, stirring frequently. Add red pepper and garlic; sauté 30 seconds. Add broth, salt, and escarole. Cover and cook 3 minutes or until escarole wilts, stirring occasionally. Combine the chicken mixture and noodles.
