Speedy Chicken Stir-Fry

For those of you who are short on time and want to make a one-dish meal, I would highly recommend this stir-fry recipe. I got it in the Kraft Food & Family magazine that anybody can receive for free by signing up on their site: . I don't usually make the recipes out of the magazine they send to me, but this stir-fry recipes caught my attention because of the use of a new salad dressing of theirs: Asian Toasted Sesame Seed Dressing. I'm a huge fan of Asian salads, so I knew I would love this new dressing. And seriously, it's my favorite. My mother-in-law bought it for me after I showed her that I wanted to try this recipe and we all sampled it on a garden salad and loved it! Now, I don't usually promote store-bought dressings because I think homemade versions are MUCH better, but this one is a must-have in your pantry.

  • 8 ounces angel hair pasta, uncooked
  • 2 cups broccoli florets
  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breast, cut into strips
  • 1/2 cup Kraft Asian Toasted Sesame Seed Dressing
  • 2 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon each: ground ginger, garlic powder, crushed red pepper
  • 1/3 cup chopped peanuts (I used cashews)

Cook pasta as directed on package, adding broccoli to the boiling water for the last 3 min. of the pasta cooking time. Meanwhile, spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 6 to 8 min. or until cooked through, stirring occasionally. Stir in dressing, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and crushed red pepper; cook 1 min., stirring occasionally.

Drain pasta mixture; place in large bowl. Add chicken mixture; mix lightly. Spoon evenly into four serving bowls; sprinkle with the peanuts.

I receive this magazine as well, but I don't think I've ever made anything out of it before. This sounds wonderful, though - maybe I need to take a second look at the magazine!

Looks good! I do generally agree with your opinion on store bought salad dressings, but I trust you :)
