Vodka Cream Pasta with Chicken
Why I Love This Recipe
J loves a good Vodka sauce, so this is a quick and easy meal (albeit fattening) that we can throw together on a weeknight before going to the gym to work it off, hehe. I actually prefer it "next-day", or re-heated, after the flavors have amalgamated.
Ingredients You'll Need
1 lb. Chicken tenderloin or breasts, chunked
1-2 Tbs. of Olive Oil
1 16 oz. jar of Vodka Sauce (I used Bertolli)
1 lb. of your favorite pasta (I used bowties!)
* I only use one jar of sauce per pound of chicken and pasta, but if you prefer your pasta "saucier", you may wish to add 1/2-1 extra jar of sauce!
Prepare pasta according to package directions.
While pasta is boiling, cook chicken in a skillet with olive oil, seasoning liberally with salt, pepper, and basil.
Drain pasta, and combine with chicken and vodka sauce.
Stir to coat.
