As I promised yesterday, I am sharing a recipe I whipped up this weekend with you guys today. Nate and I seriously need to go for groceries. We don't have much in the house, so I needed to work with what I had. I had some chicken on hand, but I didn't want to just have chicken with rice on the side like normal. I wanted something different.
And so, Garlic Herb Chicken Penne was born. Super easy and so yummy. Keep reading to find out how to make this for your family tonight!
First, let's gather all of our necessary ingredients:
4 chicken breast tenderloins, cut into bite sized pieces
13.25 oz whole wheat penne
1/4 c olive oil
3 cloves of minced garlic
1 tbsp dried parsley
1 tsp red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp black pepper
1/4 c parmesan cheese
Okay, now we can get started!
Bring a pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook your pasta, drain and return to pot.
Saute garlic and parsley in skillet for 1-2 minutes. Add chicken and season with red pepper and black pepper. Cook until browned and done.
Add chicken to pasta, toss with olive oil and parmesan cheese.
And walah! You just made yourself a delicious, healthy meal that is just as good leftover for lunch the next day!
