This simple dish cooks easily in steps and adds an unusual spice to an old family favorite.
  • 2 qts. water
  • 8 oz. whole wheat spiral pasta
  • cooking spray
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces

  • 1 c. chopped onion
  • 1 small zucchini, sliced
  • 2/3 c. nonfat plain yogurt
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice

Boil the water in a large, deep skillet. Add the pasta. Cover and continue boiling for about 10 minutes or until the pasta is al dente. Drain the pasta and temporarily move to a serving bowl and keep warm.

Spray the skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium heat. Add the chicken, mix and brown on all sides. Add the veggies and cook, stirring constantly, over medium heat until the veggies are tender and the chicken thoroughly cooked.
