Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add penne and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large bowl.

  • While the pasta is cooking, heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in chicken and season with 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir until chicken is cooked through and browned, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken to a paper towel-lined plate.

  • Pour chicken broth into the skillet. Stir in asparagus, sliced garlic, and another pinch garlic powder. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and steam until asparagus is just tender, 5 to 10 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet and cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Stir chicken mixture into pasta and mix well. Let sit for about 5 minutes. Drizzle with remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, stir again, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
