1 onion, sliced, 1 cup

Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain, reserving 3/4 cup cooking water. Sprinkle chicken with 1 tsp. fajita seasoning. In 12" nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add chicken; cook, stirring occasionally until browned, 4 - 5 minutes. With slotted spoon, transfer to platter; reserve.
