Speedy Chicken Stir Fry

This recipe is from Kraft Foods. I changed it a little as I have noted at the bottom of the recipe.

8 oz. angel hair pasta, uncooked*
2 c. small broccoli florets
1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
1/2 c. KRAFT Asian Toasted Sesame Dressing**
2 T. soy sauce
1/4 tsp. each: ground ginger, garlic powder, crushed red pepper
1/3 c. chopped PLANTERS Dry Roasted Peanuts

COOK pasta as directed on package, adding broccoli to the boiling water for the last 3 min. of the pasta cooking time.

MEANWHILE, spray large nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat on medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook 6 to 8 min. or until cooked through, stirring occasionally. Stir in dressing, soy sauce, ginger, garlic and crushed red pepper; cook 1 min., stirring occasionally.

DRAIN pasta mixture; place in large bowl. Add chicken mixture; mix lightly. Spoon evenly into four serving bowls; sprinkle with the peanuts.

* I used 2-3oz. pkg. of Ramen Noodles, Oriental flavor, reserving the flavorings. They only take 3 minutes to cook, so wait until everything is almost done before cooking them. I also added the broccoli to the pan when the chicken was thoroughly cooked.
** Instead of using the sesame dressing, I used one of the packets from the Ramen noodles with 1/2 c. water. (You can also use chicken broth). I added 2 T. sesame seeds and 2 T. wasabi peas. They soften with cooking and add a nice flavoring to the dish.
