Speedy Chicken Stir-Fry

I love this recipe because it uses my new favorite dressing!

Kraft Light Asian Toasted Sesame is really yummy -- less gloopy than some of the creamy dressing and really flavorful! It tastes great in a spinach salad, with some sliced almonds and mandarin oranges.

Like the recipe name says, this was super-speedy! I loved the dressing which had a little kick from the red pepper and some crunch from the peanuts. Next time, I will add more veggies -- maybe use a bag of frozen stir-fry veggies.

The sodium content is a little high for this recipe, but substituting with the light version of the dressing and low-sodium soy sauce, you could cut it down a little. In any case, it's definitely lighter than take-out!


1/2 lb. angel hair pasta (capellini), uncooked
2 cups small broccoli florets
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1/2 cup KRAFT Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing
2 Tbsp. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. each ground ginger, garlic powder, crushed red pepper
1/3 cup chopped PLANTERS Dry Roasted Peanuts
COOK pasta in large saucepan as directed on package, adding broccoli to the boiling water for the last 3 min.
MEANWHILE, spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 6 to 8 min. or until done, stirring occasionally. Stir in dressing, soy sauce and seasonings; cook 1 min., stirring occasionally.
DRAIN pasta mixture; place in large bowl. Add chicken mixture; mix lightly. Serve topped with nuts.
Go get this dressing and enjoy!
