DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350. Boil pasta according to package directions. Drain and place in baking dish.
  • Rinse and pat chicken dry. Season both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Heat large saute pan over medium heat. Add 1 teaspoon olive oil. Place chicken in pan, and cook 2 to 3 minutes per side, or until the chicken is browned. Remove from pan and place on a cutting board.
  • In the same pan, melt butter, and add the rest of the olive oil. Add the garlic and onions. Cook for about 2 minutes, until the onions are soft.
  • Stir in the tomatoes and 3/4 cup of the chicken broth or wine. Bring to a boil. Turn down and let simmer for about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, slice the chicken into 1/4-inch thick slices and place over pasta (the chicken will finish cooking in the oven).
  • Stir in cream and 1/2 cup cheese into the tomatoes. Simmer over medium heat until the sauce thickens.
  • Add the rest of the broth or wine if the sauce gets too thick. Stir in basil. Add salt and pepper to tast.
  • Pour sauce over chicken and pasta. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
