TMTT – Grilled Chicken with Penne

Posted by djw209 on August 18, 2009

Blessed with Grace

So last week I introduced you to one of my favorite Youtuber’s, PrincessDiana161 and so I thought I’d post another of her recipes and videos because they all look so delicious!!!!

Grilled Chicken and Penne with Awesome Sauce

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts(seasoned with Salt & Pepper)
1 lb. penne pasta
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 or 3 cloves garlic, minced
½ cup chicken broth
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1 cup heavy cream
½ to 1 tsp salt & pepper (to taste)
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (I used dried)
6-8 fresh basil leaves, chiffonaded

Rinse chicken breasts in cold water. Layer between sheets of wax paper and pound to even thickness. Season both sides with McCormick Montreal Steak seasoning. Preheat grill for medium high heat, lightly oil grate, and grill chicken breasts on medium high heat for 6-8 minutes each side. OR heat 2 tbsp butter & 2 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Once the butter and olive oil is nice and hot, add chicken breasts and cook 5 minutes each side. Set chicken aside to cool.

In a large pot, boil water with salt. Add 1lb penne pasta and boil according to package directions.

Heat 2 tablespoons butter and 2 tablespoons olive oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until garlic is tender, but do not let the garlic burn!!! (about 3-5 mins). Add the chicken broth to the pan and allow to reduce by half.

Meanwhile, slice chicken.

Once the broth has reduced, stir in tomato sauce. Add the heavy cream and stir well to combine. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Turn heat to low. Chop the parsley and basil, add to sauce and mix well. Drain pasta and add to sauce. Stir well to coat. Serve pasta on plates, top with sliced chicken.

    I really need to start trying out some of the things you post on here. We eat the same meals over and over again it seems like.

    I was sorry to hear about your Grandfather. I have been keeping your family in my prayers.
