READY IN: 30mins

Not necessarily unique, but another Friday night surprise from my hubby & he did create it without a recipe. Simple with lots of flavours we hope you enjoy it as much as we did!

Very simple and great tasting recipe! I used spinach fettuccine instead of the spaghetti noodles. I did not have any carrots in the house, so I substituted an orange pepper diced.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute onion and garlic for 2 minutes.
  2. Brown chicken meat with onion and garlic so it gets some color but is not cooked through.
  3. Add broccoli, carrot, pesto, cook for a few minutes, stirring so pesto is mixed through.
  4. The carrot will be crisp but that's how we like it. For a softer carrot add it in earlier, or even microwave it prior to starting the recipe.
  5. Add evaporated milk to chicken, pesto and vegies. Stir thoroughly and taste for seasoning. Add more pesto if you would like and a good grinding of black pepper.
  6. Simmer sauce ubtil milk is hot & everything is combined.
  7. Add spaghetti to pan and toss to coat.
  8. Serve hot with parmesan cheese if desired and good crusty bread.
