Chicken Passionata

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Intl Teacher

Nice light pasta and chicken dish! Very versatile and forgiving that children tend to love. This has become a family dish we make often. I have even served it for large crowds and dinner parties. I have been making it for more years then I would like to admit and I received it from my mother-in-law. Omit the chicken, add more broccoli and you have a nice vegetarian meal.

This was very bland. Tried to add alfredo sauce. It didn't help. Maybe someone else can think what to add. pattyjas
