GF Penne with Chicken & Asparagus

1  box GF (Schar brand)  penne pasta
5 tablespoons light olive oil, divided
2 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves
(cut into cubes) 
salt and pepper to taste
garlic powder to taste
1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
1 bunch slender asparagus spears
(trim & cut into 1 inch pieces)
1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil. Add pasta, and cook to desired texture as called for on the box. Drain, toss lightly with some olive oil so as not to stick together, and set aside.
Warm 3 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in chicken, and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder. Cook until chicken is cooked through and browned, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken onto paper towels.
Pour chicken broth into the skillet. Then add asparagus, garlic, salt, and pepper. Cover, and steam until the asparagus is just tender, about 5 to 10 minutes. Return chicken to the skillet, and warm through.
Stir chicken mixture into the pasta, and mix well. Let sit about 5 minutes. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons olive oil, stir again, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

This dish is delish, and serves about 8, unless you are a pasta lover like me!!! I love using Schar GF pastas as they remind me of the pastas from days gone by...
