Pesto Pasta with Chicken
Original recipe yields 8 servings
- 1 (16 ounce) package bow tie pasta
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 2 breast half, bone and skin removed (blank)s boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes to taste
- ⅓ cup oil-packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and cut into strips
- ½ cup pesto sauce
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Sauté garlic until tender, then stir in chicken. Season with red pepper flakes. Cook until chicken is golden, and cooked through.
In a large bowl, combine pasta, chicken, sun-dried tomatoes and pesto. Toss to coat evenly.
