Spinach Fettuccine With Chicken and Broccoli

"This recipe looks as good as it tastes! It started as a Weight Watchers recipe, but I made some modifications (don't worry - it's still healthy!). Even my 4-yr old liked it! This dish is beautiful, nutritious and filling... nice enough to serve to company! Since the chicken breasts were quite large, I had the meat counter cube them into bite-sized pieces so it would cook faster. This might look like a lot of work, but really it's not. I hope you'll give it a try!"

  • In a large pot of boiling water, cook the broccoli for 2 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a bowl. In the boiling water, cook the fettuccine according to package directions; drain.
  • Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat 2 teaspoons of the oil. Add the chicken, salt, oregano, and red pepper and saute until cooked through, 4-5 minutes on each side. Transfer to a bowl.
  • In the skillet, heat the remaining 2 teaspoons of oil; saute the onion and garlic until tender, 3-4 minutes. Stir in the broccoli; cook, stirring frequently, until tender, 4-5 minutes.
  • Add the fettuccine and chicken back to the skillet, then sprinkle with the cheese, black pepper and basil.

    Good, but a little dry. Definitely lower in fat than my standard chicken/broccoli fettuccine with alfredo sauce! I'll have to do some experimenting to come up with a chicken broth based sauce to reduce the dryness of the dish.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I live just outside Iowa City, Iowa... home of the University of Iowa (Go Hawkeyes!). In my former life, I was a Marketing Manager for Ladies' Home Journal magazine, but am now a stay-at-home mom. My husband and I have been married?15 years and have a 12-yr old son, as well as 5-yr old twin boys!!! ?We all love to be in the kitchen! While I tend to rely on recipes, my husband is more of a throw-it-together/experimental kind of cook (it usually turns out great!). I make a weekly menu, but it's never the same. Cookbooks and recipes are a passion, so I always have something new on the menu. That's why I love Food.com so much!
