Sundried Tomato Chicken Pasta

This is sooooo good. My sister-in-law made it for us several years ago & it has been one of our favorites ever since. I have tweaked the original recipe a bit to suit our tastes and number of servings.
Just look at that creamy, flavorful sauce...
1 Tbs oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 medium onion, diced
3 chicken breasts, cubed
1/4 cup sundried tomatoes*, chopped
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk
3/4 cup grated parmesan
salt & pepper to taste
basil, chopped
8 oz pasta (I usually use bowties, but this time I happened to use campanelle)
2 Tbs butter
Cook & drain the pasta according to package directions. Stir in the salt & butter. Set aside.
Cook the garlic & onion in oil until translucent. Add the chicken & tomatoes and cook until the chicken is done. Stir in the cream, milk, parmesan, salt & pepper. Cook over medium heat until it is heated through.
Spoon over plates of hot pasta & sprinkle with a little chopped fresh basil. Serves 8.
*If the sundried tomatoes are packaged dry (as opposed to being packed in oil), rehydrate them by soaking them in very hot water for 10 minutes. If they're in oil, drain them well.


  1. oh my! that looks ridiculously good!

  2. I stumbled upon your blog about a year ago by googling something like 'great brownie recipe' and ended up with a plateful of Sugar Baby's Brownies an hour later. I just wanted to say thank you for the above recipe and all the others I've tried - though being in the UK I had no idea what a Tasty Cake was! I hope you continue posting mouthwatering recipes for ages yet :)
