Creamy Chicken and Sundried Tomato Pasta

  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 8 ounces pasta (gluten free for gluten free)
  • 1 tablespoon oil (I use the oil from the sun-dried tomatoes)
  • 1 pound chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • red pepper flakes to taste
  • 4 ounces sun-dried tomatoes, sliced thinly
  • 1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 8 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into chunks
  • 1/2 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup basil, julienned


Bring a large pot of water to a boil and start cooking the pasta as directed on the package. (The sauce should be done before the pasta is finished cooking and when the pasta is done al-dante, drain it reserving some of the cooking water.)
Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan over medium-high heat, add the chicken and cook until lightly golden brown on all sides, about 2-4 minutes per side.
Add the garlic, red pepper flakes and sundried tomatoes and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Add the wine and deglaze the pan before adding the broth and cream and brining everything to a simmer.
Reduce the heat to medium-low, let the pan cool, mozzarella, parmesan and dried basil, and stir until the cheese melts, about 3-4 minutes.
Remove from heat season with salt and pepper to taste, mix in the pasta along with enough of the reserved pasta water to make a nice and creamy sauce before, adding the fresh basil.
