Another wonderful and very tasty chicken dish! I have even added in green olives to this. The complete dish is prepared in an extra large frypan. If desired you can also mix in about 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese into the cream mixture while cooking.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Cook the pasta until just firm-tender; drain, toss with about a tablespoon of oil (to prevent sticking); set aside.
  2. Saute the chicken cubes in butter or margarine until almost done; transfer the chicken to a plate.
  3. Saute the onion and garlic until soft (not brown).
  4. Add in the chopped tomatoes and basil; cook stirring for 3 minutes.
  5. Pour the wine and chicken broth into the pan, bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook until reduced by about two-thirds.
  6. Stir in half and half cream, salt, pepper, and cook until slightly thickened.
  7. Add in the cooked chicken cubes (and all the juices that were left on the plate).
  8. Simmer for about 3-4 minutes.
  9. Stir in about 1/3 cup parsley; mix to combine.
  10. Toss/mix in pasta.
  11. Serve in large serving bowls.
  12. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
  13. Delicious!

Great stuff! I took a few "liberties" with the recipe,but made it basically as posted. I used ground chicken because I was too lazy to cut up breasts today,skipped the wine and just added a little more broth,used heavy cream, and added fresh mushrooms that I sliced and then halved. The Husband declared it "a keeper" and The Kiddo was sad because she couldn't eat more.(had to pitch tonight) But I saved the leftovers for her lunch tomorrow which made her happy again! Thank you for an easy, tasty recipe that I am postive I'll be making again.
