Ingredients

  • 250 g Penne Pasta
  • 2 Chicken Breasts Boneless
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1 small Onion Finely Chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic Minced
  • 200 g Cherry Tomatoes Halved
  • 200 ml Double Cream
  • 100 g Spinach Leaves Baby
  • 50 g Parmesan Cheese Grated
  • 1 tsp Italian Herbs Dried
  • Salt And Black Pepper
  • Fresh basil leaves For Garnish

Instructions

  • Follow the instructions on the pasta package to cook the penne until it’s al dente. Drain it and set it aside.
  • Season the chicken breasts with a mix of salt, black pepper, and dried Italian herbs.
  • In a large skillet, heat some olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the seasoned chicken breasts and cook them for approximately 6-7 minutes on each side until they’re fully cooked and no longer pink in the middle. Remove the cooked chicken from the skillet and set it aside.
  • In the same skillet, toss in chopped onions and minced garlic. Sauté them for a few minutes until the onions turn translucent.
  • Introduce halved cherry tomatoes to the skillet and cook them for around 3-4 minutes until they begin to soften.
  • Pour in double cream and add grated Parmesan cheese. Stir until the sauce thickens, and the cheese melts into a creamy texture.
  • Slice the cooked chicken breasts into thin strips and reintroduce them to the skillet.
  • Combine the cooked penne pasta and baby spinach leaves with the creamy sauce in the skillet. Make sure everything is well coated.
  • Allow the mixture to simmer for a couple of minutes until the spinach wilts, and the pasta is warmed through.
  • Adjust the seasoning with additional salt and black pepper to your taste.
  • Finish by garnishing with fresh basil leaves to enhance the flavour.
  • Serve your delightful Creamy Tuscan Chicken Pasta while it’s hot and savour every bite!
