    WaterMelon's Note:

    This is a dish I came up with to serve with HeatherFeather's Red Wine & Rosemary Sauce over Linguine. This is so simple and extremely easy. I pan-fry the chicken in a skillet, then prepare the sauce in the same skillet. You might get some blackened 'stuff' in the pasta sauce - I strain it first before serving.

    3. 3
      Heat a skillet over med-high heat, and add olive oil.
    4. 4
      When pan is sufficiently heated, sear chicken breasts over high heat.
    5. 5
      Allow about 2 minutes (until lightly browned) before turning to other side.
    6. 6
      Optional: Before serving, sprinkle grated cheese on chicken and broil for approx 5-10 mins (until cheese is melted).
    7. 7

    8. 8
      Personally I love this with fried rice too.

      Sooo good! I added some ground italian seasoning to the breasts and I deglazed the pan with a little water, garlic, and dijon mustard which made the perfect sauce for the chicken and broccoli I served along side with a nice helping of mashed potatoes! A very delicious dinner that I will definitely make again! Thank you:)

      Yum! This was so simple and good. I can't believe how much flavor there was with such simple ingredients. Thanks WaterMelon for a nice keeper. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup Tag.
