How To Make

Step 1

Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add carrot, onion, and celery; cook for 5 minutes.

Step 2

While vegetables cook, pour 2 cups water and stock into the pot or alternatively a microwave-safe bowl and microwave at HIGH for 5 minutes. (This saves up to 10 minutes in the pot.)

Step 3

Add hot stock mixture to pan and bring to boil. Stir in thyme and pasta; reduce heat to medium, and cook for 8 minutes.

Step 4

Add cooked chicken, salt and pepper to pan; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated and pasta is tender.
