Chicken Primavera

Chicken Primavera is a tasty and easy-to-make meal that brings together chicken, veggies, and pasta in one pot. You don’t need to be a chef to create this delicious dish. With a bit of chopping, stirring, and cooking, you’ll have a fantastic dinner on the table.

Start by cutting chicken into small pieces and giving them a sprinkle of salt and pepper. Cook these pieces in a big pot until they turn golden brown. Take them out and set them aside for a bit.

In the same pot, toss in minced garlic and diced onion. Let them sizzle until they’re soft. Add slices of bell pepper, zucchini, and cherry tomatoes. Cook them until they’re nice and tender.

Now, throw in your favorite pasta, chicken broth, and some cream. Let it all simmer until the pasta is just right – not too hard, not too soft. Put the chicken back into the pot.

Time to add some grated Parmesan cheese and dried herbs for extra flavor. Mix it up, taste it, and add a pinch more salt and pepper if needed.

Let the dish rest for a few minutes. Sprinkle some fresh parsley on top for a pop of color. Serve it hot, and if you’re feeling fancy, maybe add some garlic bread on the side.

This Chicken Primavera is a winner for a simple, satisfying dinner that won’t make you feel like you’re in a cooking show. Enjoy your meal without the drama!
