I recently posted a recipe for the amazing Sizzlin’ Chicken & Cheese. The chicken is served on top of mashed potatoes which is on top of a pepper & onion medley, on top of cheese. Well, I like to cook twice the amount of chicken that we need when I make that dish. Why? Because the chicken is so good for other recipes. It’s good on top of a salad and it is good in this pasta recipe.
I love pasta and so do most of my family members. I thought the Sizzlin’ Chicken would be great with pasta, but of course it needed a little sauce to go with it. So, I created this rich, creamy sauce and the Creamy Chicken Pasta was born! You could leave your chicken breasts whole, but I chose to cut up the pieces to put into the sauce. One reason I think I prefer this way is so that the yummy spices that are already on the chicken will mix into the sauce. Yum!
