This is the very first meal Tyler ever made for me. It's a ton of add some seasoning, taste, and adjust, which Tyler's good at. Patience is key, but so is constant stirring! If you follow that, you'll have one of the best meals you've made in a while.
makes 4-5 servings
3/4 lb Cellentani pasta
2 chicken breasts
2 teaspoons garlic powder
2 teaspoons salt plus more for sprinkling
1 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons cream cheese
1 pint heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup parmesan shredded
Begin by bringing a pot of water to a boil. Once boiling, add in your pasta (3/4 of 1-lb box). Stir occasionally and boil according to package.
Drain when cooked.
Cut your chicken into 1/2 inch strips. Season with your garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
In a skillet, heat your olive oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add your chicken and cook on each side for 3-4 minutes or until it begins to turn opaque.
After the chicken is cooked and has some color, remove from skillet onto a new, clean plate. Cover with aluminum foil.
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add in your cream cheese, heavy whipping cream, butter, and parmesan. Continuously stir until melted and combined.
Add in your seasonings, at least 1 teaspoon each. You can adjust these later.
Bring to a simmer and continuously stir for about 10-15 minutes or until it begins to thicken. During this time, you can taste it and see if you'd like to add additional seasonings.
Once seasonings are adjusted and the sauce is thickened, add your cooked noodles to your sauce. Stir together.
Lay out your sauced noodles on a plate or bowl, and spread chicken on top. Sprinkle extra parmesan cheese on top and serve with garlic bread. Enjoy!
