I am a sucker for pasta recipes and really love pasta recipes with chicken. A pasta recipe with chicken that can be on the table in about a half hour....I had to try it.
1 large Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast Halves
3/4 Tbsp Olive Oil
1 tsp Chopped Fresh Thyme Leaves
Garlic Powder And Freshly Ground Black Pepper
1/2 Packages Fresh Fettuccine
⅓ cup Mayonnaise ( I used light )
¼ cup Freshly Chopped Green Onions
1 Tbsp Freshly Chopped Parsley Leaves
1 Tbsp Freshly Chopped Basil Leaves
½ tsp Pepper And Garlic Powder
½ tsp Lemon Juice
½ tsp Seasoned Salt
⅓ cup Sour Cream
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Slice chicken breasts lengthwise into 1-inch wide strips. Place on a rimmed baking sheet and drizzle with olive oil. Sprinkle with thyme, garlic powder and pepper. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until cooked through but still juicy; do not overcook.
While chicken is cooking; cook pasta according to package directions. Drain pasta. Pat excess moisture off pasta with a paper towel, if necessary.
Combine mayonnaise, green onions, parsley, basil, pepper, garlic powder, lemon juice,seasoned salt and sour cream. Pour dressing over pasta and toss gently.
Place chicken strips on top of pasta.
*I adapted this recipe a bit by adding some sour cream instead of part of the mayo. Super easy recipe and I loved how the thick sauce clung to the pasta. Nothing worse then a thin sauce swimming around the plate under the pasta!!
