Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes

  • 1 raw chicken breast, cut in half lengthwise
  • ½ 1 lb. 8 oz. (816 g) jar pasta sauce
  • ½ cup (125 mL) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 4 oz. (125 g) dry spaghetti


  1. Prepare 2 servings of spaghetti as directed on package.
  2. Heat canola oil in 10-inch (25 cm) skillet over medium-high heat and brown chicken breast, turning minimally to maintain juiciness. Cook until internal temperature reaches 165°F (70°C).
  3. Add pasta sauce and bring to a boil. Sprinkle with cheese. Reduce heat to low and simmer covered 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Serve with hot cooked spaghetti.
