Leftover grilled chicken makes this a wonderful pasta dish with a twist

  • Servings: 4-6


4-6 Leftover Grilled Chicken Breasts, i had marinated the chicken prior to grilling in italian dressing for several hours
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 can Diced Tomatoes
Several Leaves of Fresh Basil
Several Twists On Black Pepper Mill
½ Onion, diced fine
4 cloves Garlic, minced
1 pkg Fettucine or Your Favorite Pasta Noodle, prepared as directed
Parmesan Cheese


Heat olive oil in pan, and sautee onion and then the garlic. Add both cans of diced tomatoes, fresh basil, black pepper. Bring just to a boil, then simmer. Add the previously cooked chicken (just to warm through). Add any additional Italian seasonings you like, but the chicken I used had already marinated in Italian dressing, so it was good to go.

Serve over fettucine. Sprinkle parmesan cheese on top if desired
