What a great weekday meal. Everyone loves chicken and fresh vegetables together. Try this, too, with snow peas or asparagus in place of broccoli.

1 pound ziti, uncooked (or any other medium pasta shape)
8 ounces boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch pieces
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 teaspoons Crisco® Vegetable Oil
3 cups broccoli florets
1 large red bell pepper, cut into short thin strips
1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
1 twelve-ounce can evaporated skim milk
1 tablespoons cornstarch
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard




Prepare pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, toss chicken with salt, pepper and garlic. Coat a large non-stick skillet with cooking spray; place over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken mixture; 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.
