Garlic Chicken Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Chicken + Pasta + Garlic = 100% yummy

I think that every single one of my kids went back for seconds on this dish and my husband was lucky there was any left when he got home from work. I love the texture and the flavor the sundried tomatoes gave to this easy dish. Thanks to my friend Karen for an awesome new recipe!

The ingredients:

3-4 green onions, chopped
1 tsp. garlic, minced (we added a 1/2 tsp. more)
2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1 (8-oz.) bottle sundried tomatoes packed in oil (the oil is used in the recipe, so don't drain it yet)
1 pint heavy cream
2 tsp. dried basil (or 1/2 cup fresh basil, finely chopped)
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1 lb. penne pasta, cooked as directed on package and drained

Directions: Drain oil from sundried tomatoes into a large skillet.

Chop the tomatoes into 1/2-inch pieces and set aside.

Heat skillet and saute onions, garlic, and chicken breasts in the oil from the sundried tomatoes.

Cook for about 3 minutes. Add the sundried tomatoes.

Simmer 5 minutes. Add cream.

Simmer 5 minutes more. Add basil, Parmesan, and garlic salt.
Stir until well combined. Pour over cooked and drained pasta and stir until combined. Makes 5-6 servings.

I can see why the kids gobbled it up so fast:)
Any pasta recipe containing cream is a winner for me!

Making this tonight, I'm truly looking forward to it!!

I made this tonight! I wished I had some artichoke hearts to add to it, but it was really good. I did not have the oil soaked sun dried tomatoes, but dried ones and I used half and half instead of whipping cream and leftover roast chicken breast. It was really good!

HOLY COW this dish was amazing. I probably will do half and half next time just to cut the calories down, but this was a for sure winner dinner. My kiddos loved it (3 and 1), my husband loved it, I loved it. I froze half of it for a meal some time down the road (I do this quite often- nice for those busy days) and will definitely be making this again. Thanks for the awesome recipe!
