Chicken Mozzarella Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes Recipe

Chicken Mozzarella Pasta with Sun-Dried Tomatoes Recipe

3 large garlic cloves
4 oz sun dried tomatoes
1 lb chicken breast tenders
pinch of paprika
1 cup 2% Milk (or milk of choice)
1 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
8 oz penne pasta (can use whole wheat/grain)
Parsley – to garnish
½ cup reserved cooked pasta water
red pepper flakes, to taste
salt, to taste
Dice up sundried tomatoes
In a large pan – add oil and garlic and sun dried tomatoes — I would add additional 2 tablespoons of oil if the mixture is dry since you need oil to cook the chicken
While all this is cooking – cook the pasta according to the instructions on the box – remember to take about ½ Cup of the pasta water out before you drain the pasta
Take out the garlic and sundried tomatoes from the pan – place in the small bowl
Add chicken to the pan – season with the salt, pepper, paprika, and red pepper flakes
Cook chicken – once chicken is cooked – add the tomato mixture add milk and cheese
Once that is heated add pasta – heat for another 2 minutes – if the sauce is too thick add some pasta water
Garnish with parsley and serve
