Standard

I kind of made this one up on the fly based on the ingredients I had around the kitchen, and it turned out lovely. I hope you like it!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 chicken breasts, cubed
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/4 cup original cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup chipotle cream cheese
  • 1 tbsp parsley
  • 1 tbsp basil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 can diced chipotle tomatoes, not drained
  • Parmesan cheese for topping
  • Angel hair pasta

WHAT TO DO:

  1. Start your pasta so that it’s ready by the time everything else is!
  2. Salt and pepper your cubed chicken
    Melt butter over medium high heat in a skillet.
  3. Once melted, roast garlic. Once fragrant, toss in chicken. Let it cook for about two minutes on each side.
  4. Add in cream cheeses and parsley and basil. Lower heat to medium.
  5. Stir well so that cheeses melt.
  6. Add in lemon juice and diced tomatoes. Stir well so that the water from the tomatoes makes a nice sauce with the cheese.
  7. Turn heat to low. Cover and let cook for 10 minutes.
  8. Mix into drained pasta.
  9. Serve topped with Parmesan cheese.

Enjoy!
