In Sussex, Wisconsin, Alice Hofmann counts this fast, easy and flavorful entree among her favorites. “I like serving it with asparagus spears or broccoli florets,” she notes. “Leftover ready-to-serve soup is next day’s lunch!” TIP: For a tasty alternative, Alice sometimes substitutes Italian-style veal steaks (chopped and formed breaded veal) for the chicken.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1-1/3 cups uncooked spiral pasta
  • 1-1/3 cups ready-to-serve tomato-basil soup
  • Minced fresh basil, optional

Directions

  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the flour, salt and pepper. Coat chicken with flour mixture. In a nonstick skillet, brown chicken in oil over medium heat; drain.
  2. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, pour soup over chicken. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 5 minutes or until chicken juices run clear. Drain pasta; top with chicken and sauce. Sprinkle with basil if desired.
