Parmesan Chicken with Bow Ties offers a twist to the traditional favorite with the inclusion of bow-tie pasta, diced tomatoes, and chopped chicken.
12 ounces bow-tie pasta
Salt and pepper
2 cups small broccoli florets
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 1/2 pounds chicken breast, skin and bone removed, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 small onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup canned petite diced tomatoes, drained
1/2 cup grated Parmesan
How to Make It
Cook pasta in boiling salted water until al dente, about 10 minutes, or as label directs; add broccoli for final 3 minutes. Drain, reserving 1 cup cooking liquid. Toss pasta and broccoli with 1 Tbsp. oil.
Warm remaining oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken, onion and garlic, sprinkle with salt and pepper; sauté for 5 minutes. Add tomatoes; sauté for 2 minutes. Toss in pasta, broccoli, Parmesan and 1/2 cup of cooking liquid. Add more liquid if dry.
It was ok. I made it pretty much as written. The flavors didn't blend very well I thought the broccoli with tomatoes was odd. It was pretty bland. I would probably take out tomatoes or substitute broccoli if I make it again.
this was the first dish that my daughter made by herself, for our dinner recently. she did a nice job and it was really tasty! forgot to put the chicken in tho!!! had some frozen that i had previously grilled, but left it thawing in fridge…..dish still great. easy and good.
This was excellent! It has two of the requirements that I look for in a recipe: easy and successful results. The only thing my family thought should change was the broccoli. We thought maybe red/green bell peppers might be better. The broccoli just didn't seem like it belonged. Otherwise the dish was flavorful; will be making this again and again!
I would definetly make this again!
I had some green onions that I added to the frying pan along with the garlic and onion. I did not have any chicken on hand and did not miss it at all.
I also did not have canned tomatoes but I did have sundried tomatoes. I added a few extra broccoli florets to make up for the lack of chicken. Yummy!!!
