Chicken Mozzarella Pasta Directions:

Preparing Your Ingredients:

  1. Season Your Chicken: Sprinkle your chicken with salt, pepper, and a dash of paprika. Itโ€™s not just seasoning; itโ€™s adding layers of love to your dish.
  2. Cook the Chicken: In a skillet thatโ€™s seen its fair share of delicious meals, heat a bit of the sun-dried tomato oil. Cook the chicken until itโ€™s golden and whispers, โ€œIโ€™m ready!โ€ Set it aside, and let it restโ€”youโ€™ve both earned it.

Crafting the Sauce:

  1. Sautรฉ the Aromatics: In the same skillet, let the garlic and sun-dried tomatoes get to know each other. Sautรฉ them until theyโ€™re fragrant enough to make your neighbors jealous.
  2. Creamy Transformation: Pour in the heavy cream and sprinkle in the mozzarella. Stir gently on a simmerโ€”itโ€™s like a cozy blanket for your pasta.

Bringing It All Together:

  1. Pasta Time: While the sauce simmers, cook your penne until itโ€™s perfectly al dente. Drain it and introduce it to the skillet. Theyโ€™ll get along famously.
  2. Add the Chicken: Slice the rested chicken and tuck it into the skillet. Stir it in and watch as it becomes part of the family.
  3. The Final Touch: Scatter the fresh basil and a whisper of red pepper flakes over the top. Give it one last stirโ€”itโ€™s ready to make someoneโ€™s day.
