Savory Bow Tie Pasta with Chicken and Broccoli
I just stumbled on this recipe in some old files – and I’m not sure I ever posted it. So in the spirit of sharing the love (and an easy recipe I won some contest with) this one’s for you:
If you’re looking for a recipe to wow your family, this is a great option. It’s a savory dish with starch, protein and vegetables all in one! As an added bonus, here’s some of my best hints for this recipe!
Notes: I like to do a little prep work before I cook to get organized. For this recipe, I like to cut the chicken, and have the onion, garlic, broccoli, sun-dried tomatoes, and artichoke hearts cut and ready to go before I start cooking! It’s also handy to have the pasta cooked and drained ahead of time!
In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Saute the onion until softened, about 3-4 minutes, add the minced garlic and saute for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the chicken strips and saute until white and almost completely cooked. Add broccoli and saute until crisp-tender. Add sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, red pepper flakes, salt and pepper. Add vinegar, wine and butter and cook 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally until thickened slightly. Toss the cooked pasta with the chicken mixture. Serve with Parmesan cheese and garnish with basil!
