Chicken Primavera with Parmesan Pasta


Category: , ,

One of the best things about living in the South is shopping at Publix. They have cooking demonstrations, and more importantly, they give you an opportunity to taste their recipes. Last week, I tried their Chicken Primavera with Parmesan Pasta and really liked it. I changed up a few things, and this is my version of it.

Time saving tricks: Cook pasta while preparing/cooking Chicken Primavera. Use partially frozen chicken breasts and thin slice prior to cooking. I also subbed fresh garlic for some jarred mince garlic on hand. Use can also buy pre-diced onions and pre-sliced carrots to cut down on time as well.

Makes 6 large servings.
