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

  • Servings: 4-6

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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
