Chicken & Pasta With Marinara Sauce

Chicken & Pasta With Marinara Sauce created by Nick Nelson

OMG! You've got to try this! My DH created this 10 years ago. I forgot how wonderful it tastes. There was a time where we had this at least once a week! I'm posting this in response to someone had 3 chicken breasts and wanted a quick and easy recipe that would feed 5. This will feed five, but they will be fighting over the leftovers (if there are any!).

    I make spagetti using chicken breast diced up instead of ground beef all the time. Mine always turns out very good. I do not mean this comment to be ugly at all so please don't take it that way. I dice my chicken breast up and set it aside. Then I use EVOO and a little butter to saute diced onions and minced garlic. Once the onions are translucent I add the diced chicken back to the skillet and cook until the chicken is done, add some diced tomatoes. Fresh basil cut into ribbons and oregano chopped up. Once the tomatoes have cooked down enough to get the can taste out I add hunts garlic and herb spagetti sauce, my cheat, and S & P to taste. Once that comes to a boil I cut it down on simmer and leave it there for about 30-45 min. Really the longer you let it simmer the better it is because it gives all the flavors time to come together. I keep chicken broth or stock on the side in case the sauce starts getting to thick you can a little bit to loosen it up. When the sauce starts tasting to your liking put on the pasta in salty water, not to salty, and take it up when it becomes aldente. Add the pasta to the sauce. Stir or toss together and that's all I do. Make sure to continuously taste in case you need to add more S&P or Italian seasoning. It's worth trying if you would like.

    I was excited to try a red sauce with chicken, but it didn't turn out tasting very good. It was more like chicken and tomatoes with some herbs... Don't try it with Spaghetti, it won't stay on the pasta.
