Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain.
  2. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Saute chicken in hot oil until cook through, about 5 minutes. Transfer chicken to a plate.
  3. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Saute zucchini, yellow squash, onion, red bell pepper, and garlic in hot oil until slightly tender but still crisp, 5 to 10 minutes. Stir chicken into vegetable mixture.
  4. Whisk chicken broth and cornstarch together in a bowl until smooth. Pour chicken broth mixture into chicken mixture; bring to a boil and cook until liquid thickens; 1 to 2 minutes. Pour in lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Add bow-tie pasta and stir to combine.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • You can use a prepared lemon-pepper sauce or marinade instead of the lemon juice and pepper. These prepared products are fairly strong, so start by adding a tablespoon or two, then taste and adjust.
  • For a vegetarian version, skip the chicken, use a mild vegetable stock, and double the zucchini and yellow squash.
