1 lb Orchiette ("Little Ears") pasta
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts
3/4 cup drained oil packed sun dried tomatoes, reserve oil
4 cloves of garlic, minced
1/2 cup chopped artichoke hearts, packed in oil
1/4 cup fresh chiffonade of basil (don't prepare until just before adding)
1 1/4 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
1 1/2 cups heavy cream (this ain't no diet pasta! lol)
1/2 cup chicken broth

Prepare pasta according to directions on package, or heck, just boil until

al dente.

Thinly slice the chicken breasts. Heat some of the oil, about 2 Tbsp, from

the sundried tomatoes in a skillet or sauté pan. Sauté the chicken until golden and

cooked through. Add tomatoes, artichokes, and garlic, sauté 1 minute, then add chicken

broth. Allow it to reduce to about half and add cream and simmer until

slightly thickened.

Drain pasta well, then toss with chicken & garlic cream sauce, and parmesan.

Last, prepare and toss in the chiffonade of basil. It may seem very saucy at

first, but the pasta will absorb the excess and taste wonderful for having

done so!

This is a recipe I made up after having a similar dish at Maggiano's one night. I knew it couldn't be very complicated, but it sure is delicious!
