Lemon and Asparagus Chicken Pasta

Submitted by: HOY916

Introduction

A very light and low-fat pasta dish that works well in the spring and summer. Shrimp instead of the chicken would also work really well. A very light and low-fat pasta dish that works well in the spring and summer. Shrimp instead of the chicken would also work really well.
Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    One Chicken Breast, bone and skin removed
    1 cup asparagus, chopped in about 1" pieces
    2 cloves Garlic
    1/4 cup Onions, sliced
    2 Cups Pasta, cooked
    the juice of one lemon
    3/4 tsp Pampered Chef - Citrus & Basil Rub (lemon pepper would probably work well also)
    1 tbsp Olive oil
    1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (optional)
    Salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Sprinkle the chicken with the citrus basil rub and bake for about 20 minutes at 350 degrees or until juices run clear. (I used left overs from dinner earlier in the week)

Boil water and add pasta, which ever type you prefer.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet, add the chopped onion and the red pepper, add the garlic once the onion started to become translucent. Add the asparagus pieces cook for about 5 min until tender. Stirring so nothing burns. Turn down the heat and add sliced chicken and the lemon juice.

Drain the pasta, add to skillet. Toss pasta with the other ingredients, quickly so the pasta doesn't stick.

Remove and serve immediately, makes about 4 one cup servings.
