  • 1/3 cup white wine or chicken broth

Directions

  • In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute chicken, squash and carrots until chicken is heated through, 6-8 minutes.

  • Remove from heat; stir in green onions. Serve immediately.


Test Kitchen Tips
  • The noodles soak up the sauce to become extra flavorful.
  • This recipe is perfect for using up leftovers. Try it with leftover pork or rotisserie chicken.
