Recipe - Kim's Chicken & Sundried Tomato Pasta

Remember when Joey Tomatoes had a dish called the Michelangelo?  Well, it was one of my favorites, and it's no longer on the menu.  I had a craving for it one day and decided to make up my own version of it.  I have shared it with a few of my friends and they loved it, so I thought I would share it with all of you. 

Hope you like it! 

This makes enough for 2 people with a little bit left for lunch the next day. 

Ingredients

1 large or 2 small chicken breasts cut into bite size pieces
1 Tbsp flour
1 tsp basil (use more to taste if using fresh basil)
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp ground pepper
1 tsp olive oil
4 green onions, sliced
2-4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup white wine
1/4 cup chicken broth
3/4 cup green peas (fresh or frozen)
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes (oil packed) ( I dab some of the oil off with a paper towel)
Freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 cups dried Fusilli pasta

Method

Mix flour, basil, salt, and pepper together.  Add chicken and toss to coat.  (I use a baggie to make it easier).  Add olive to skillet and cook green onion for about 2 minutes, then add the garlic and cook for another minute.  Add chicken and cook until it is lightly browned.  Add the white wine to the pan, stir and reduce for about 2 minutes. Stir in the sun dried tomatoes, chicken broth, and peas.  Cook until the peas are warmed.  Toss with cooked pasta and top with fresh Parmesan.  Quick, easy and delicious!

  2. My favorite pasta too! Trying this with some changes. Trattoria and Italian Kitchen in Vancouver serve something similar to the Michelangelo.
