This is a quick and easy dinner I whipped up the other night. I knew pasta was on the dinner menu, but I had no real other inclination as to what to do with it … until I saw a jar of Ragu Light Alfredo sauce. Alfredo pasta it shall be!
This was a rather quick, easy and filling meal I was able to whip up in less than 20 minutes.I had some Tyson Lightly Breaded Chicken Strips that I popped into the oven to crisp up while I set a pot of water on to boil. I was boiling up some Al Dente Carba-Nada pasta for myself. I popped a bag of fresh broccoli and carrots into the microwave and let them steam.When the pasta was done, I drained it, added in some black pepper, tossed in the broccoli and carrots, then added in some Ragu Light Alfredo sauce. I actually made 2 servings, one serving for diner and another to have for lunch the following day.
Since pasta, without a protein is something I don’t eat; I weighed out 3 ounces of chicken and served that alongside my pasta dish. It was delicious, filling and a perfectly different meal.The entire plate was only 10 points plus values.
I spotted the Tyson Lightly Breaded Chicken Breast Strips at Target and decided to pick up a bag. I have been a “faithful” Purdue lightly breaded chicken strips and chunks buyer for months on end. Since I had heard these were good I opted to give them a go even though they are a points plus value higher than the one I have been buying.
I cooked these in the oven, per the bag directions with a spray of non-stick cooking spray on the pan and over the frozen chicken strips.I found when done they crisped up nicely, but would’ve crisped up perfectly if I flipped it halfway through. The strips themselves were delicious. The chicken appeared to be more white meat chicken. I quite enjoyed these and will undoubtedly be purchasing another bag when we’re done with the bag I have.They were perfect alongside some oven crisped French fries but would also be great in a sandwich or even over a salad.
A 3 ounce serving is 150 calories or 4 points plus values.
