  • 8 ounces thin spaghetti, dry
  • 1 bunch baby broccoli, cut into 2-3-inch lengths
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, cut into thin strips
  • 1 lb chicken breast, boneless & skinless
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ cup peanut sauce (I used Chinese Peanut Sauce)
  • salt
  • fresh ground pepper

How to Make It
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Add broccoli and sweet pepper during the last 3 minutes of cooking and then drain well. Return pasta & veggies to pan and set aside.
  2. Cut chicken into strips or large cubes and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  3. In large skillet heat olive oil over medium high heat. Cook chicken in hot oil 8 to 12 minutes or until no longer pink (170F), turning over while sauteing.
  4. Transfer chicken to the pan with the pasta & veggies. Toss with the peanut sauce and heat through over medium heat.
  5. Sprinkle each individual serving with crushed red pepper flakes to taste.
