Bayou Pasta with Chicken

Submitted by: CHERIJ30

Introduction

Tasty and delicious. Great for a quick and easy meal in minutes! I served this with a side of Sugar Snap peas. The sweetness of the Peas and the saltiness of the Parmesan make a great balance of taste. Tasty and delicious. Great for a quick and easy meal in minutes!

Ingredients

    12 oz. Penne
    3 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter
    1 Tbsp. All purpose flour
    1 1/2 cups Half & Half
    1/2 cup grated Parmesan
    Salt and Pepper (to taste)
    1 lb. Boneless, Skinless chicken breasts (about 4)
    1 1/2 Tbsp. Old Bay Seasoning
    2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
    2 Firm-ripe Roma tomatoes, cored and diced

Directions

1. Bring a pot of salted water to a boil. Cook penne according to package directions.
2. Melt butter over medium heat. Add flour; stir for 1 minute. Add half-and-half; stir until thickened, about 6 minutes. Remove from heat; add Parmesan, salt and pepper (to taste). Cover.
3. Place chicken between 2 sheets of plastic wrap (I used a ziploc bag); pound with a rolling pin or meat mallet to 1/2 inch thickness. Rub Old Bay evenly over chicken. Warm oil in a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and cook, turning once, until no longer pink in center, 6 to 8 minutes. Slice chicken.
4. In a bowl, toss pasta with sauce. Top with chicken and tomatoes and serve
