Recipe type: Main

Serves: 4-6

 Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. penne pasta (gluten-free pasta works great too!)
  • 1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast (cut into bite-size pieces)
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/2 cup plain bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3 1/2 cups halved grape tomatoes
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/8 tsp. black pepper
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1/2 cup parmesan cheese
  • fresh basil, to taste

What To Do

1. Preheat broiler.  Cook pasta, drain well.

2. Dip chicken into egg, roll in bread crumbs.  Heat 2 Tbsp. olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Saute chicken until browned and cooked through.  (I usually do this in two batches.).  Set chicken aside in a large bowl, add cooked pasta and combine.

3.  Heat the remaining oil in a skillet.  Add tomatoes and garlic and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes.  Add cream, oregano, salt and pepper.  Remove from heat and add to pasta and chicken mixture.  Add 1/2 of the mozzarella, parmesan and bail to the mixture and combine.

4. Pour mixture into greased 9×13 baking dish.  Sprinkle with remaining mozzarella.  Broil until melted.  Sprinkle with additional basil, if desired.

Makes about 8 cups (4 servings)

Enjoy!
