Chicken Pasta with Veggies

It seems like I haven't posted in forever!  Probably because I haven't.  I'm finding it harder to come up with new recipes.  Thankfully I found this one on Pinterest.... changed it slightly to add some flavor.   It is a FAVORITE!   I've actually cooked it several times... I'll eat it for three days and not even care that I'm eating the same meal three days in a row!  Now that's a good recipe!!
8 ounces angel hair pasta
2 cans organic chicken (or about 1lb of cooked chicken... I use can for ease when I can)
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 medium carrots sliced diagonally
1 1/2 Cups fresh broccoli
3 tsp Minced Garlic
1 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth
1/2 Cup grated Parmesan Cheese
2 tsp dried Basil
2tsp Thyme
1/2 tsp Salt

1. Cook Pasta according to package.
2.  In a skillet cook carrots in oil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.   Add Broccoli and garlic, cook 2 minutes longer.  Stir in the chicken, broth, cheese, basil, thyme and salt.  Bring to a boil.  Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered for 6 minutes or until vegetables are tender.
3. Drain pasta;  serve chicken & veggie mixture over pasta... I usually pour some of the broth on the pasta as well.   Enjoy!

Yields about 5-6 servings.  


  1. Niki, this looks DELICIOUS!! I am going to try it :) Thanks for sharing!

  2. I love to cook as well Niki! My daughters, husband and son too! We are all great cooks. I will enjoy your recipe ! Thanks!

  3. Niki, someone has asked me what kind of broth you used that doesn't have a ton of sodium in it? I figured you probably used an organic low sodium brand? I believe Swanson makes one?


  4. I use Swanson Chicken Broth Fat Free, No MSG, 33% reduced sodium. I hope you like the recipe as much as me. Thanks for all your kind words. They mean so much!

  5. Niki, are you still posting on your blog?

  6. This looks delicious! Thanks for posting this! I'm just trying to buckle down on my IC diet and your recipes are giving me so many ideas and things to try!

  7. Hi Niki, love your blog. It has given me so much to work with given my new diagnoses. Thank you! Just curious if you will be posting any new recipes??

    1. I just added one and I'm going to try to start adding more!! I've been having babies the past 5 years so I really fell off. Thank you for your support!!!

  8. I just tried this recipe and it is SO good! It tastes a bit like chicken noodle soup but with a nice twist that makes it feel like italian which is great because I miss my spaghetti so bad right now. My kids loved it too which is a major plus in for me. Thumbs up on this one. By the way Niki, Wow! What a service! Thanks so much for taking the time/energy to put this together. Incredibly helpful!
