Chicken, Asparagus and Carrots with Egg Noodles Recipe: Nutritious and So Delicious

A dash of citrus juice adds zing to this creamy dish

I’m always looking for hearty quick-prep meals that are good for you yet don’t skimp on flavor. That’s why this Chicken, Asparagus and Carrots with Egg Noodles recipe is so perfect. It’s packed with fresh veggies and lean white meat chicken. The noodles make it filling, and just a little cream takes it over the top. It tastes totally indulgent, but it’s healthy. Now that’s I what I call a win-win!

Carrots contain beta-carotene and vitamin A which help support immunity. Heart-healthy asparagus is loaded with antioxidants. Peas are a good source of vitamin C and zinc, and can help reduce inflammation, too. With all those nutrients, we can afford to be a little decadent. So, we make a silky sauce with a touch of flour to help thicken it up. Cook along with our video and see how easily this dish comes together. Then leave us a comment below.
