This isnt your traditional Spaghetti

Hello everyone , thank you for stopping by. Feel free to leave comments, suggestions or concerns. Today I have a recipe for you all that is quick and easy to make. Not too many bells and whistles with it either and great for a summer time meal. I call this chicken spaghetti. We start out with 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts. Cut them into bite sized pieces and then season with salt and pepper. From there heat up a large pan with a tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil and just a sliver of butter. Add your chicken breast to the pan. While that is browning, start boiling your water for your spaghetti. Make as much or as little as you need here, I usually make about a quarter of a pound to feed 4 people, maybe a little less. After your chicken is browned you will need to add the following: 1 envelope of four seasons italian dressing (dry), and a quarter cup of white vinigar. Let the chicken mixture reduce. Optional at this point is adding a package of frozen broccoli. If you dont like broccoli you can substitute it for any other veggie or leave it out completely. From here you will need fresh parmesan cheese the stuff in the can will not do it. I know its rather expensive but if you keep a small triangle of it in your freezer it lasts longer and a little bit of this heavenly goodness goes a long way. Shut off the heat to your chicken (after it has reduced) and grate the cheese over the top. Drain your spaghetti and add your chicken and italian dressing mixture to the spaghetti and your done. For a side you can either make a mixed green salad or cheesy garlic bread. I will give you recipes for those at another time.
I know times are hard for some people today but if we take the time to live,laugh and love its quite possible to get through anything life throws at us.
