Single on Valentines Day? The Key to a Woman's Heart is this Creamy Chicken Sauce
It's been so long since our last post! Sorry! Guess we got a little overexcited by the superbowl. Anyway, this week is that special day for your special someone - Valentines day. And if there's one thing girls love, it's Italian food - specifically, creamy, decadent Italian food (right?).
So today we have a dish for you that will make your lover's knees tremble. Or if you don't have a lover, you can fill up on it and feel extremely satisfied. It's rich, creamy, and extremely flavorful. Best of all, it's really easy and will let you focus on your date instead of on the kitchen. Enjoy!
Making the Dish
2 pieces, chicken, sliced into thin strips
1/4 cup, sun-dried tomatos, sliced into thin strips
1.5 cups baby bella mushrooms, sliced
2 cloves garlic
1/2 lb, ziti or penne
3 tbsp, olive oil
1/2 cup, light cream
1/4 cup, grated pecorino romano
1 tsp, dried basil
Drain your pasta, and add it to the creamy chicken mixture. Toss together over medium heat for about 30 seconds to finish the cooking of the pasta and let all the flavors incorporate.
Serve, and enjoy!
This is a tremendous dish for Valentines day or any day of the week really. It's rich, decadent, and delicious. The sun-dried tomato has a nice sweet tang that works perfectly with the earthy mushrooms, and the chicken gives it a nice hearty finish.
