This can be a little spicy depending on the heat of the chiles in the can. Ro-Tel(R) tends to be milder than Hatch(R) brand. You can also substitute asparagus, zucchini, and Cajun seasoning with broccoli, snap peas, and ginger for an Asian flavor.

  • Rub olive oil over chicken tenders.

  • Arrange chicken tenders in a large skillet over medium heat; season with half the seasoning mixture. Cook chicken until halfway cooked, about 5 minutes. Flip and season the other sides with the remaining seasoning mixture; cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and juices run clear, about 5 more minutes. Remove cooked chicken from skillet.

  • Mix tomatoes with green chile peppers, onion, asparagus, carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, bell peppers, and garlic in the same skillet; cook until vegetables are softened, 3 to 4 minutes. Add chicken broth, lemon juice, lemon zest, and chicken tenders to the vegetable mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer for 10 minutes.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook egg noodles in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, about 10 minutes. Drain and return noodles to pot. Add Parmesan cheese and mozzarella cheese; toss until cheeses melt. Transfer noodles to 5 serving bowls; top each with 1 chicken tender and 1/5 the vegetable mixture.

i'm going to admit that i cannot give a true review b/c i altered so much.. but i would still like to submit what i did so i can go back in the future.. i almost never carry canned tomato products in my house so i usually just substitute fresh with great results.. i cut this recipe in half and used a roma tomato and a baby jalapeno for the canned stuff.. didn't have asparagus so used broccoli instead.. i only had a half of a bell pepper in the fridge so i used that for the 1 1/2 listed.. i used 1 T of bottled lemon juice for the lemon and left out the zest.. me and bf weren't in the mood for cheese in this and i'm serving his portion over rice instead of noodles.. i had to heavily salt this after it was done and i splashed a bit more lemon and sprinkled cilantro over my bowl.. this is very healthy.. but not something i was impressed with.. UPDATE: bf had this for dinner several hours after i had submitted my review.. having been able to sit this actually tasted really good.. so i'm going to change my rating from 3 to 4 Read More

I made this for dinner tonight and my husband and I loved it! I used regular spaghetti because that's what I had. I didn't have asparagus so I used broccoli and green beans because that is what I had on hand. It's a great recipe to make substitutions because of all the vegetables. Will be making this again!

I'm so glad I tried this recipe. I tasted great and it is pretty healthy with all the vegetables. It takes a little work but it is worth it. I like that it is a whole meal. You can add a green salad if you want but it is really not necessary with all the vegetables in this dish. I made the dish as written with the exception of substituting green beans for asparagus and shell pasta for no yolk egg noodles because those are what I had on hand. I will definitely make it again.

Thought it was good but found it almost too spicy even for us and we love spicy. Great way to use lots of summer veggies. Will make again perhaps with fresh tomatoes and chilies so I can control the heat. Read More

I loved this recipe! It's often hard to find a healthy pasta dish without all the sauces but this one had great flavor texture and looked pretty too. I will definitely try this with company. Easy and pretty quick. Read More

Very yummy flavor and best of all it was easy and fast! You can even make it faster by having all the veggies pre-chopped. The next time I make this I will make one small adjustment. The asparagus and squash came out a little soggy so I would suggest adding those the last 5 minutes of cooking. Read More

Delicious. I substituted the egg noodles with wheat pasta and chose canned tomatoes without the chile peppers. Instead to add some spice I used a red pepper olive oil to rub into the chicken strips. A whole onion was too much in my opinion so I used 1/2. Also make sure you use the largest pan you have as there are so many veggies going into this! Read More
