Chicken, Pasta and Veggies in a Lemon Wine Sauce

This is one of my favorite pasta dishes. I don't make pasta very often, but whe, I do, I load it up with veggies to cut down on the guilt. I never use frozen veggies for this dish because I find they get mushy during the cooking process. It seems like a lot of ingredients, but it really is quite easy.

This was delicious! I had already marinated my chicken in a lemony marinade (for chicken fajitas) but decided to try this one instead. What a winner! I wouldn't change a thing.

This review is for the sauce only. I needed to use up some leftover grilled shrimp, so I skipped the chicken and just tossed the shrimp into the sauce until warm. The entire family devoured this.

We really enjoyed this dish. Quick, easy and tasty. For our preference I increased the chicken (1 1/4 lb) & broccoli (5-6 oz. As a result I increased the wine & broth abit. I didn't have fresh basil so I used 1-2 tsp dried. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
