Chicken and Broccoli Pasta Dijon

This recipe courtesy of I Love Pasta

This Italian chicken with broccoli recipe sounds like something you might spend all day preparing, but it's actually a very quick Italian meal and very easy to prepare.

The Dijon mustard sauce is rich and creamy and a nice twist on the traditional italian pasta cream sauce.

Pasta Dijon With Chicken And Broccoli

  • 1 pound Mostaccioli, Penne or other medium pasta shape, uncooked
  • 8 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 large red bell pepper, cut into short, thin strips
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 12-oz. can evaporated skim milk
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 3 tbsp. Dijon mustard

Prepare pasta according to package directions.

While the pasta is cooking, season the chicken with salt, pepper and garlic. Coat a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray or 2 turns of olive oil; place over medium-high heat until hot.

Add chicken and stir-fry 4 to 5 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Remove chicken from skillet and place in a medium bowl.

Add broccoli, red pepper and chicken broth to skillet. Cover; simmer over medium heat 5 to 6 minutes or until vegetables are tender-crisp. Transfer to bowl with chicken. In a small bowl, combine 1/4 cup of the milk with cornstarch, mixing until smooth. Add to skillet with remaining milk; bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; stir in mustard. Stir in reserved chicken mixture.

When pasta is done, drain well. Toss with chicken mixture. Serve immediately with additional freshly ground pepper, if desired.
