  1. In a medium skillet, saute chicken breasts over medium high heat for about 10 minutes, or until browned. If the chicken sticks at all, you can add a little of the broth. When chicken is browned, remove from skillet and cut into 1 inch cubes. Sprinkle with garlic powder.
  2. In the same skillet heat the broth, basil, pepper and vegetables. Bring to a boil. Stir in the uncooked noodles and return the chicken to the skillet. Reduce heat to low. Cover skillet and simmer all together, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes or until chicken meat is no longer pink and noodles are soft. Serve.

I never cook the meat for recipes like this. I file the recipe away in a "leftovers" folder in my recipe box & wait until I have leftovers. (I almost always make extra when grilling or broiling chicken, steaks, pork chops, etc & then use them in salads, pasta dishes, soups, stirfrys...the list is endless). For this recipe I used leftover turkey from Herb Roasted Turkey Breast (from this site) & cubed it. I scaled the recipe down to two since it was just me for lunch, only I knew it was going to take a lot more than 1/2 cup of broth to cook the noodles so I added extra. Quite a bit actually as I had to keep adding it to keep it from running dry. I did not thaw the veggies (didn't see the point) & I used a large clove of roasted garlic instead of the powder. When the noodles were about half done, I added the turkey & sprinkled on some Wondra flour (it's an instant flour used to thicken sauces & gravies)....very good & extremely quick...thanks Christine!

Pretty good but next time cook the pasta and chicken separately

I thought this was really good, but I added a lot of my own ingredients. I made it more lemony. :)

I gave this 5 stars because my very picky eater ate it up. My 10 year old is terribly picky and HATES cheese. She ate this and my other daughters were able to sprinkle cheese on top of theirs. I don't cook to please the picky eaters, but it was nice to find something everyone liked. :)

This was OK. I cooked chicken with salt & pepper in a little olive oil, and added fresh garlic and basil part way through cooking. I removed the chicken from the pan, and added the stock. That helped to deglaze the pan and add flavor to the pasta when I added it. It also took WAY more stock than called for. I didn't thaw the vegetables first, either. It was OK, I'd make it again when I'm in a hurry.

Not bad, but very bland. I doubled the chicken broth, and cooking the noodles in the broth did help flavor wise. I surely wouldn't cook the noodles separately, as the noodles DID pick up flavor in absorbing the broth. Along with the noodles and broth, I cooked cut up carrots, red pepper, onions, a little broccoli, as well as fresh basil. Stirred in fresh spinach and added left over cooked (boiled) chicken last.

Pretty good recipe for something quick and tasty.

This was very easy. I tried rice instead of noodles. It was a hit.
