Can you tell I love chicken, especially when it is served over pasta? The other day I realized that since I moved to Philadelphia and started to always make my own meals, I have yet to buy/eat red meat! I have strictly been eating chicken and the occasional seafood dish! I really must start branching out my meat selections! Anyway, this dish was easy and quick but tasted like it took hours! (Original Recipe found here)
What You Will Need:
1/2 pound boneless skinless chicken breast cut into bite-sized cubes, seasoned with salt and pepper
1/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, plus extra for topping
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 cups cooked broccoli florets
1 package whole wheat angel hair pasta
White Wine Sauce:
4 cloves minced garlic
1 cup white wine
2 cups chicken stock
1 tsp crushed red pepper
4 tbsp butter (divided)
1.5 tsp Kosher salt
In a large zip-lock bag combine chicken, breadcrumbs and cheese and shake to coat chicken. Heat olive oil in a large skillet and add chicken. Brown on all sides until thoroughly cooked and remove from heat.
Cook angel hair according to package directions. Set aside.
Mix broccoli, chicken and pasta. Cover and set aside.
In a small saucepan mix garlic, wine and broth and bring to a boil. Heat until reduced by half and whisk in butter 1 tablespoon at a time. Add salt and red pepper. Toss with pasta and top with Parmesan cheese.
