All it takes is four ingredients and 20 minutes to have this hearty dish from Anne Nock of Avon Lake, OH ready for the table. Chicken, snap peas and pasta star in this dish, and the garlicky sauce ties it all together nicely.

"I was unable to find a package of garlic-herb pasta sauce mix so I used garlic-alfredo sauce mix. Instead of sugar snap peas, I used brocolli which was good. Overall, the recipe was pretty good."
