Creamy Cheesy Tomato Chicken Pasta
My fantastic sister in law, Megan, made this dish for our family last week and I couldn’t get enough of it. Best of all, my kids loved it too! She calls it “Creamy Cheesy Tomato Chicken Pasta” – but around here, my kids know it as “Aunt Megan’s Pasta.” (which is even easier for me to say too!)

Ingredients:

  • 4 thin sliced chicken breast
  • 6 cloves of garlic
  • 2 tsp flour
  • 1 c. chicken broth
  • 1/2 c. heavy cream
  • 2 oz. cream cheese
  • 8 oz. tomato sauce
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 tsp. oregano
  • 2 tsp butter
  • 1 c. shredded Parmesan cheese

Notes:

  • The 1 tsp. red pepper flakes makes it pretty spicy, so I would add less if you are feeding to the kiddos.
  • You can also add one can of drained petite diced tomatoes to the mix, just to add a little something extra.

Directions:

  1. Melt butter in a pan; add chicken and cook until just done; move chicken to a baking dish and cover (keep drippings in the pan)
  2. Add flour to the pan and stir until pasty
  3. Add chicken broth, red pepper flakes, and minced garlic, simmer 1 minute
  4. Add cream cheese, cream, tomato sauce and most of the Parmesan cheese, and oregano
  5. Cook over medium-high heat until thick and bubbly; stirring almost constantly
  6. Pour sauce over the chicken; top with the rest of the Parmesan cheese
  7. Bake uncovered at 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes

ENJOY OVER YOUR FAVORITE PASTA!
