Want an easy home made asian lunch/dinner for 2? :-)

I made this for lunch today when I got home from my work out and it was so easy and yummy I just wanted to share. No oil, no additional fats. Ended up being around 300 cal, 40 carb, 3 fat and 35 protein. And its filling!
1 Large chicken breast (Just out of the freezer is fine)
1 Bag of frozen steam in the bag broccoli (or your fav mixed blend veggies - If you are REALLY hungry you could do extra veggies. They go great with this easy dish)
1 Cup of your fav pasta (I just used elbow macaroni since I had it on hand)
2 Tbs Kikkoman's Teriyaki Sauce
2 Tbs Panda Express Kung Pao Sauce
Medium pot with water
Spices of your choice
Put your chicken in the pot fill with just enough water to boil. Add your fav spices to the water. (I used onion powder, garlic powder, chili powder and a little low sodium Old Bay)
Boil till chicken is cooked thru. Once fully cooked, toss the cup of pasta into the boiling water. (Cooks in the broth and spices and makes it more yummy!)
Toss the veggies in the microwave according to package (around 7 min)
Pull out chicken and cut in half. One half for each serving. Cube chicken.
Drain pasta and split between 2 bowls. Add chicken to bowls.
Once veggies are done split them between the two bowls. Top with a tablespoon of each sauce and toss!
Very simple and easy to keep these items on hand. :-)
Om nom nom! Enjoy! ;-)
Side note: If you want a lower sodium version skip the Asian sauces since they are notorious for high sodium, and switch out for a tomato sauce and make it an Italian dish. Or toss with salsa for a spicy kick. :-)
