Delicious. At first, I was a little iffy about the peas and beans but it turned out to be a great recipe. However, I'm one for spicier foods, so I added some pizza seasoning and some Italian salad dressing so it was a little gooier and had a little extra zing. Delicious recipe nontheless.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 chicken breasts, cooked with skin and bone removed
  • 1 (15 1/2 ounce) can kidney beans, rinse and drained
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cup frozen peas
  • 3 cups macaroni, dry (I use whole wheat)
  • 2 tablespoons Mrs. Dash tomato basil garlic seasoning (Italian Medley)
  • 1 tablespoon Mrs Dash's extra spicy seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil


  1. Boil the macaroni according to package directions. While that is going, preheat a large skillet.
  2. Dice the chicken and add the olive oil and chicken to hot skillet. Toss with a bamboo spoon for a few minutes or until chicken is starting to brown.
  3. Add the diced tomatoes (with juice), drained and rinsed kidney beans, and frozen peas to the chicken. Cover and bring up to a simmer.
  4. Remove lid, add seasoning and stir in the macaroni.
  5. Serve immediately.
