Ingredients

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!


Pairs Well With


Notes

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!
