Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1-1/4 pounds chicken breast skinless and boneless
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons garlic minced, ~ 2 cloves
  • 2 cups chicken broth low sodium
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 pound penne pasta uncooked
  • 2 cups Parmesan cheese freshly shredded
  • 3-4 Roma tomatoes diced
  • 2 cups prosciutto or ham chopped
  • 1 cup feta crumbled
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Slice chicken breasts into 1-inch pieces. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Brown the chicken pieces in olive oil over medium-high heat. Don't overcook the chicken. It doesn't have to be fully cooked at this stage because it will continue cooking.
  • Once chicken is browned, add minced garlic and saute for about one minute.
  • Add chicken broth, cream, and uncooked pasta to the pan and stir to combine.
  • Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce to a simmer. Simmer 15-20 minutes, until the pasta is tender.
  • About 5 minutes into simmering, add feta, prosciutto, tomatoes, and basil to the pot. Reserve some of the basil to use as garnish.
  • Remove from heat and stir in shredded Parmesan cheese.
  • Season with salt and pepper as needed.

Notes

  • Any short pasta shape will work for this recipe.
  • To switch it up, try adding in cooked bacon, different herb,s and cheeses.
  • Leftovers can be stored in the fridge for 1-2 days.
  • I don't recommend freezing this as the dairy products can split and the pasta will lose its texture
