Chicken Milano

“Store-bought rotisserie chicken can be tossed into countless recipes from burritos to casseroles to pastas. Because the bird is already cooked, all you need to do is toss the chicken into your desired meal. [This] is a simple Ramen recipe where rotisserie chicken can be substituted in place of raw chicken breasts.”

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1 cup chopped jarred sun-dried tomatoes
1 cup lower-sodium chicken broth
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 packages Ramen Noodles with 1 seasoning packet

Heat oil in a skillet; add chicken and garlic and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until chicken is done. Add tomatoes, chicken broth, basil and pepper. Simmer over low heat 5 minutes.
