DIRECTIONS

  • Boil water for pasta and salt water prior to adding pasta.
  • Trim any fat off the chicken and butterfly the breasts. Season chicken with salt and pepper.
  • Bring chicken broth to a boil and add chicken and red pepper flakes on med/high heat until cooked. You'll notice the broth might thicken somewhat. This okay because you'll use this as the base for your sauce.
  • Remove chicken once all pink is gone and chicken is cooked though. Hold with tongs and shread chicken with a fork. Set aside.
  • Lower heat to medium and add in two cloves of garlic and saute for only about 1 minute.
  • Add cream to broth and garlic.
  • Roll up basil leaves and chop into thin ribbons. Add this to cream mixture.
  • Add chicken and cooked pasta into sauce mixture.
  • Add parmesan cheese and stir until well blended.
  • Leave to thicken slightly on medium heat for about 5-10 minutes.
  • Add pepperonchinis.(The yellow picked peppers mentioned above. These are on the pickle isle of your grocery store).
  • The sauce will not be as thick as alfredo sauce gets, but will be even better! Just serve with warm French or Italian bread!
