Chicken Noodle Bowl Recipe Is a Toss-Together Delight That’s Ready in 35 Minutes

When the summer heat is in full swing, I avoid dishes that are too hearty and opt for lighter yet still filling options. That’s why I’ll be adding this Chicken Noodle Bowl recipe to my weekly dinner roster. It’s a vibrant toss made with angel hair pasta, vegetables, chicken breasts and other ingredients. Not only is this dish packed with flavor, but many of the ingredients are full of prebiotics — which feed the “good” bacteria in your gut. Ultimately, if you’re looking to serve up a delicious and nourishing meal in 35 minutes this recipe is a perfect fit for you!

The best part about this recipe is that you can mix-and-match the ingredients without skimping on flavor. Add in other veggies including broccoli and carrots for a nutrient boost. Use roasted almonds or pistachios in place of peanuts. Or, substitute steak or shrimp for chicken breast halves. Share what ingredients you’d put in your noodle bowl dish in the comments below!
