Total Time

"We have three children and a busy life in the country," relates Anne Drouin of Dunnville, Ontario. "So I appreciate not having to dirty extra pots and pans when I make this one-skillet dish of chicken and pasta in a light tomato sauce."


  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (4 ounces each)
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) Italian diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 ounces uncooked spaghetti, broken into 2-inch pieces
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large skillet, cook chicken and onion in oil until onion is tender; remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, add the tomatoes, broth, basil and pepper to the skillet. Bring to a boil; stir in spaghetti.
  2. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Return chicken to pan; cook until a thermometer reads 170° and spaghetti is tender. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
