Well we are back from vacation and back to our normal routine. I finally cooked tongiht. I have not even been to the grocery in 3 weeks! It was great to get back in the ktichen and have a stocked fridge! For dinner I made Chicken in a garlic cream sauce! I got the recipe from another food blog. It was so good! It was the first time I had made a cream sauce and it turned out pretty good I think. I think the best part was that Chad wanted seconds! I'm glad I was able to find another recipe for him to enjoy!
Chicken in a Cream Sauce
1 box penne pasta (all I had was ziti)
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup chicken broth
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp olive oil
1 Tbsp italian seasoning
2 chicken breasts, cut into cubes
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper to taste
Cook pasta as directed on package.
While it's cooking, heat olive oil in a pan and saute chicken.
Add salt and pepper.
When chicken is done, remove from pan and set aside.
Melt butter in the same pan and cook garlic for about 2 min making sure not to burn it.
Add chicken broth, heavy cream and italian seasoning. Stir to combine. Add chicken to the sauce and let simmer for 5 min.
Add parmesan cheese to help thicken the sauce.
Add more salt and pepper to taste.
Next add drained pasta to the pan and let heat through for another 4-5 min.
*If the sauce doesn't thicken enough, add a little flour and stir before adding the pasta*
