Chicken, Veggie Pasta Primavera

This is a recipe we got from our dad. It is one of my "go-to" recipes when I need something quick and that everyone likes.  I don't really measure everything exactly, I just keep tasting along the way. You can adapt it to what you and your family like.
Here's what you need:
  • 1 Packet of Knorr brand Vegetable recipe mix or Spring Vegetable mix
  • 2-3 chicken breasts, thighs or whatever you like, I slice mine into smaller pieces to cook faster, but you can use them whole
  • 2-3 c chicken broth or stock
  • fresh veggies that you like, I use stringless snap peas, broccoli,  okra, or whatever I have that needs to be eaten
  • pasta I use a small box of Angel Hair, but again.. use what you like
Start your pasta water boiling and cook the pasta. In a skillet, cook chicken until it's not pink anymore then add stock and Knorr mix, add veggies and put the lid on. Cook until veggies are cooked/steamed but still crisp. Drain pasta, save a little pasta water to add to the chicken and veggies,it will help the sauce still to the noodles. Add pasta to the skillet with chicken and veggies and gently toss to mix. You can add more broth if you want it to have a little more sauce. When your veggies are how you like them, it's done!  Enjoy!
