1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1/4-inch strips
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 cup (1-inch) slices asparagus
2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1/4 cup (1 ounce) crumbled goat cheese
How to Make It
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat.
While pasta cooks, heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat; coat with cooking spray. Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Add chicken and asparagus to pan; sauté 5 minutes. Add tomatoes and garlic to pan; sauté 1 minute. Remove from heat. Stir in pasta, basil, vinegar, and oil to chicken mixture in pan. Top with cheese.
Serve with: Spinach Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette
This is one of our standby recipes. I use low fat feta instead of goat cheese and -- if I have time -- I marinade the chicken in balsamic vinegar and olive oil. The leftovers never last long in the fridge!
