Daddy's Chicken Spaqhetti

This is a great high protein recipe I found in the book, "Low-Fat Soul", by Jonell Nash.

1 pound uncooked spahetti

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 medium-sized yellow onion, chopped

1 small green bell pepper, seeds and membranes removed, chopped

1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast, cut into 1/2-inch cubes

1 teaspoon salt (optional)

1/2 teaspoon ground white pepper

1 teaspoon dried basil leaves, crushed

28-ounce can salt-free whole tomatoes, cut up (with liquid)

1 1/2 cups Basic Chicken Broth

3 tablespoons tomato paste

Cook spaghetti slightly less time than package drections indicate. Meanwhile, in 5-quart dtch oven, heat olive oil. Saute onion and bell pepper about 5 minutes; push to one side

Add chicken, salt (if desired), white pepper, and basil to dutch oven. Cook 10 minutes, stirring often. Add tomatoes, broth, and tomato paste; reduce heat to medium. Cover; cook 20 minutes, stirring often.

Drain cooked spaghetti; stir into sauce, mixing well. Remove from heat; let stand 10 minutes before serving.
