Dinner Menu: Tuesday “Chicken Pasta Stir Fry”

Tonight’s dinner was another product of “What does Amy want to eat together tonight”. And let me tell you–my taste buds have never steered me wrong!

We get so tired of the same old thing all the time so I like to mix things up often. Even if it’s only one or two different ingredients sometimes it can make it seem like a whole new dish.

Tonight’s dish I am calling “Chicken Pasta Stir Fry” because it was simply that. Chicken, pasta and a whole bunch of vegetables.

Again, I don’t measure out my ingredients per say and we make according to our taste buds. Here is what we did tonight:

6-8 chicken thin cut tenderloins cut into small cubes
Angel hair pasta
Zucchini
Red Bell Pepper
Mushrooms
Onion
Garlic cloves
Lime
Olive oil
Butter
Salt
Ground black pepper
Garlic salt
Parmesan Cheese

In a large skillet drizzle olive oil in the pan and add chicken. Cook on medium heat about 5 minutes or until they are no longer pink.

Add chopped zucchini, red bell pepper, mushrooms, onion, fresh garlic (3 or 4), 1 tsp butter, salt, pepper and garlic salt to taste.

Squeeze half a lime over the entire mix. Stir the dish, cover and cook for 10-12 minutes on medium heat.

Cook pasta accordingly.

Drain pasta, serve the chicken vegetable stir fry over and add a few sprinkles of Parmesan cheese.

Enjoy!
