Chicken with bow tie pasta and broccoli in a delicious lemony cream sauce come together in this easy weeknight meal that doesn't heat up the oven. It's a good recipe to use leftover chicken if you have it or to quickly sauté or grill it if you are starting from scratch.
Season chicken with lemon-pepper and grill or broil it until done.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta and vegetables according to package directions.
When the chicken is done, slice it into strips and set aside.
Drain pasta and return to the cooking pot.
Add the butter to the pasta and stir gently until melted.
Add the half and half and turn stove on to low heat.
Stir in feta cheese, vegetables, and chicken. Heat until everything is hot and the sauce is thickened to your preference.
Gluten-freeYou can find a variety of gluten-free pastas in most grocery stores, or you could add more vegetables and omit the pasta. VegetarianLike most stovetop pasta meals, it's easy to omit the chicken from this recipe and balance it out by adding additional vegetables or a can of rinsed and drained cannellini beans.
