  • 1
    In 2-quart saucepan, heat 3 cups water to boiling. Stir in pasta (from Chicken Helper box). Return to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer uncovered about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until pasta is tender. Drain; cover to keep warm.
  • 2
    Meanwhile, in 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt margarine over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms, onion and bell pepper; cook about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender. Remove from skillet.
  • 3
    In same skillet, mix milk, sauce mix (from Chicken Helper box), Italian seasoning, paprika and ground red pepper. Heat to boiling, stirring occasionally.
  • 4
    Reduce heat. Cook uncovered 6 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in tomato pasta sauce, vegetables and chicken. Cook uncovered about 3 minutes longer or until thoroughly heated. Serve over pasta.

Expert Tips

  • You can use uncooked chicken breasts instead of the rotisserie chicken. After removing vegetables from skillet, melt 2 tablespoons margarine or butter in skillet; carefully add 1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch cubes. Cook over medium-high heat about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally, until outsides turn white. Beginning with step 3, continue with recipe as written—except omit rotisserie chicken.
  • Kick up the heat by serving with hot pepper sauce—each person can choose their own heat level!
