Chicken, Sundried Tomato and Basil Alfredo

Chicken, Sundried Tomato and Basil Alfredo

I was hankering for a creamy-cheesey pasta dish and had some chicken in the fridge.  I found a tetra pack of heavy cream that I got at Trader Joes in my pantry and I always have sundried tomatoes packed in olive oil and Parmesan cheese in my fridge.  I also always have frozen basil that comes in handy when I don’t have fresh on hand, so I decided to make this dish.  I sautéed some chicken almost all the way through and removed it to a plate while I sautéed an onion and garlic.  Add the cream, sundried tomatoes, and chicken and when the sauce is almost finished, add the Parmesan cheese and basil.  I always reserve some of the pasta water so when I add the pasta to the skillet and it seems a bit dry, I can add some of the starchy water to bring the sauce together.  It satisfied that craving and the sweet and tangy sundried tomatoes cut the richness of the sauce.  Click here for the recipe….
