Chicken Pasta Dijon

Evaporated skim milk is a great ingredient for adding rich, creamy texture to sauces while keeping the saturated fat in a dish low. A great thing about this particular sauce is that it’s very versatile. Make it to use up whatever odds and ends of veggies you’ve got kicking around the freezer or fridge.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb. spaghetti
  • 8 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast, cubed
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ¼ tsp. pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp. vegetable oil
  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 bell pepper, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated skim milk
  • 1 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 3 Tbsp. Dijon mustard

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. While pasta is cooking, coat a large skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium-high. Season chicken with salt, pepper, and garlic. Sauté until cooked through (4-5 minutes).
  3. Remove chicken from skillet and set aside. Add broccoli, red pepper, and water to skillet. Cover and simmer over medium heat until vegetables are tender (5-6 minutes). Transfer to bowl with chicken.
  4. In a small bowl, combine ¼ cup of the milk with cornstarch, whisking until smooth. Add to skillet with remaining milk and bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  5. Reduce heat and stir in mustard. Stir in chicken mixture.
  6. Toss cooked pasta with chicken mixture and serve immediately.
