- 8 ounces of angel hair pasta
- 1 pound of boneless skinless chicken breast

- ½ cup+ of grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 teaspoons of dried basil

Boil a large pot of salted water and cut the chicken into bite-sized pieces. Cook the pasta according to the package directions and as it cooks, sauté the chicken in 1 tablespoon of the oil until cooked through (about 5 minutes).
Set the chicken aside, keeping warm. Add the rest of the oil to the skillet and cook the carrots in it for three minutes. Add in the broccoli and garlic and cook for two more minutes. Return the chicken to the skillet, along with the chicken broth, Parmesan, basil, and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil, then simmer uncovered until the veggies are tender (about 5 minutes).
