NO YOLKS® Skillet Salsa Chicken with Noodles

  • Product: NO YOLKS® Broad noodles
  • Prep. 25 minutes
  • Makes: 4 servings

The added protein from black beans adds a fibre boost and also allows you to use less ground chicken in this budget conscious variation on the traditional taco supper.

Ingredients

4 cups (1 L) NO YOLKS® Broad Noodles
1/2 lb (250 g) lean ground chicken or turkey
1 onion, finely chopped
1/2 cup (125 mL) each chopped green pepper and frozen corn kernels
2 tsp (10 mL) each chili powder and cumin
1/4 tsp (1 mL) each salt and pepper
1 cup (250 mL) mild or medium salsa (approx.)
1 cup (250 mL) canned no salt added black beans, drained and rinsed
3/4 cup (175 mL) sodium-reduced chicken broth
Shredded Cheddar cheese, chopped green onions and low fat sour cream (optional)

Directions

  1. Prepare the noodles according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, brown the chicken with the onion, green pepper, corn, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper in a large, deep nonstick skillet set over medium-high heat.
  3. Add the salsa, broth and black beans to the skillet. Bring to a boil; simmer for 10 minutes. Stir in the cooked noodles until coated. Serve with shredded Cheddar cheese, green onions, sour cream and additional salsa to garnish individual bowls at the table.

Tips:

  • Substitute extra lean ground beef for the chicken.
  • For a spicier dish, use hot salsa and add hot sauce or hot pepper flakes to taste.
  • Replace the chili powder and cumin with 4 tsp (20 mL) taco seasoning.
