Chicken Mozzarella Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes Recipe
  • 3 large garlic cloves
  • 4 oz sun dried tomatoes
  • 1 lb chicken breast tenders
  • salt
  • pinch of paprika
  • 1 cup 2% Milk
  • 1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • 8 oz penne pasta
  • Parsley - to garnish
  • ½ cup reserved cooked pasta water
  • red pepper flakes, to taste
  • salt, to taste
  1. Dice up sundried tomatoes
  2. In a large pan - add oil and garlic and sun dried tomatoes --- I would add additional 2 tablespoons of oil if the mixture is dry since you need oil to cook the chicken
  3. While all this is cooking - cook the pasta according to the instructions on the box - remember to take about ½ Cup of the pasta water out before you drain the pasta
  4. Take out the garlic and sundried tomatoes from the pan - place in the small bowl
  5. Add chicken to the pan - season with the salt, pepper, paprika, and red pepper flakes
  6. Cook chicken - once chicken is cooked - add the tomato mixture add milk and cheese
  7. Once that is heated add pasta - heat for another 2 minutes - if the sauce is too thick add some pasta water
  8. Garnish with parsley and serve
