Chicken Spaghetti Skillet

I usually make pasta two times a week, we only eat half a box per meal. So I cook a whole box with the first meal. Then use the rest for the second meal.

1/2 box spaghetti
2 chicken breasts cut into small pieces
1/2 head cauliflower(precooked in boiling water until softened, or steamed)
1/4 c. white wine
1/4 c. chicken broth
1/2 red onion diced
Salt, granulated garlic and pepper to taste
1c. shredded parmesan

Make It:
Heat a large pot over medium heat, add chicken cook until browned. Add onion, and cook until softened. Add cauliflower, broth, wine and seasonings, stir and bring to a simmer(medium amount of bubbles). Cook uncovered for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add spaghetti, stir, cook until heated thru. Add parmesan stir to combine. Enjoy!
