Italian Stir Fry

The recipe card says "Zesty Chicken and Pasta." But it's actually Italian Stir Fry. I decided.

I don't have step by step photos because I didn't think of it. But while we were eating, after Derek said "I love this meal," I decided to take a quick pic of the final result and share with you! I'm telling you it's so yummy and so easy you will thank me later.

The original recipe is from

What you need:
  • 1lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut in 1 in. pieces
  • 1/2 c. Italian dressing, split
  • 2 c. broccoli florets
  • 1/2 c. thinly sliced onions
  • 1 1/4 c. chopped red peppers
  • 1 T chopped fresh parsley
  • Cooked pasta
What you do:
  1. Cook chicken pieces in 1/4 cup dressing on med-high heat until there's no pink.
  2. Add the veggies and parsley. Cook until tender.
  3. Toss with hot pasta and another 1/4 cup dressing

The first time I made this it was rather bland. So I added:
  • Chicken seasoning
  • Italian seasoning 
  • Significantly more dressing than it calls for 
  • Crushed hot peppers
Also, I have only used dry parsley. Fresh parsley would probably boost some serious flavor, also! Basically, be generous with everything that has flavor and you'll have a delicious dish!

If you make/have made this meal and have tips, please share!
