Creamy Pasta with Roasted Chicken

None 0 0 5 0

This time when D requested for Pasta, I wanted to try something new, something quite different from what I had been making. A quick look at my saved recipes, I came across this Creamy Penne Pasta with Roasted Chicken recipe from 'Simple Daily Recipes'. It was indeed a simple recipe and it turned out to be delicious too. D absolutely loved it

Though I used Penne pasta for this recipe, any pasta of your choice would be just as fine. Vegetarians can use vegetables in place of chicken. Here's the recipe

Creamy Pasta with Roasted Chicken

Source:** _Simple Daily Recipes

Ingredients

2-1/2 cups (1-1/4 cups raw pasta) - Cooked Pasta
4 tablespoons - Butter
1 clove - Crushed garlic
1/3 cup - Chopped Onion
4 tablespoons - Flour
2 cups (I used 2 cups water with 1 chicken stock cube) - Chicken stock
1/2 cup (I used milk) - Sour cream, curd or milk
to taste - Salt
1/8 teaspoon (you can add more if you want) - Pepper powder
For Roasted Chicken
2 cups (you can use more or less) - Diced boneless chicken
to taste - Salt
1 teaspoon - Pepper powder
1 tablespoon - Oil

Steps

  1. Marinate the chicken pieces with salt and pepper for a few minutes. Heat oil in a pan and put the marinated chicken in it. Cook on high flame for 2 minutes. Reduce to low flame and let it cook till the chicken turns light brown in colour. Switch off heat and keep aside
  2. For cooking pasta, take a pan of water. More, the better. Put it on heat and let it boil. When it comes to a rolling boil, add the pasta and keep stirring the initial few minutes, so that they don't stick to each other. Usually pasta takes approximately 8-10 minutes to cook. Make sure it is not overcooked. So keep a watch. It should be 'al dente' - firm, yet tender, with a tiny core in the middle. When you cut into a piece, there shouldn't be any white in the centre of the pasta. It should be opaque. Drain into a colander
  3. Melt butter in a pan. Cook garlic and onions over medium heat, until onions have softened. Add flour and cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly
  4. Stir in broth, stirring frequently until sauce comes to simmer. Remove from heat. Stir in sour cream/curd/milk until it well blended. Season with salt and pepper. Add the cooked pasta and the roasted chicken and mix well. Serve immedietely. Bon Appetit !!
