- Prep: 5 min - 10 min
- Cooking: 20 min - 25 min
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) butter
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or 8 chicken thighs
- 4 garlic cloves minced
- 1 tsp (5 mL) dried basil
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 2 1/2 cups (625 mL) reduced-sodium chicken broth
- 6 oz (180 g) broad egg noodles
- 1 tbsp (15 mL) all-purpose flour
- 1 cup (250 mL) 10% 10 % cream
- 4 cups (1 L) frozen mixed baby vegetables (about 1 lb) thawed and drained
- 2 tbsp (30 mL) freshly squeezed lemon juice or white wine vinegar
In a large, deep skillet or pot, melt butter over medium-high heat. Brown chicken, turning once, for about 3 min per side. Push chicken to one side and add garlic, basil and 1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper to skillet; sauté for 30 sec.
Stir in chicken broth and bring to a boil. Stir in noodles; arrange chicken in a single layer. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer for 5 min or until noodles are almost tender.
Flip chicken pieces. Whisk flour into cream and stir into skillet with vegetables. Increase heat to medium and simmer, stirring often, for about 7 min or until chicken is no longer pink inside and sauce is slightly thickened. Stir in lemon juice and season to taste with salt and pepper.
Plan ahead and put the frozen vegetables in the refrigerator to thaw the night before you plan to make this, or place them in a microwave-safe bowl and defrost them while you prepare the rest of the recipe.
Don’t try to turn the chicken too soon. Make sure it is brown and has loosened from the pan to prevent tearing.
