Creamy Chicken and Artichoke Pasta

5 Jan

This is one of those recipes that tastes like a restaurant quality dish. We both loved this. Eric said I could make it again, which is always a good sign in my book. I think it would be perfect for a dinner party. I changed the recipe up just a bit and was really pleased with the results.

Creamy Chicken & Artichoke Pasta

Slightly Adapted From: Kuki’s Kookbook

 

1 lb chicken breasts, cubed

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon butter

1 1/2 cups fresh mushrooms, sliced

1 teaspoon onion powder

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 beef bouillon cubes

2 cups half and half

8 oz.  low-fat cream cheese

1 cup parmesan cheese

1 can quartered artichoke hearts, chopped

1 cup grape tomatoes, halved

16 oz. penne pasta, cooked al dente

dried parsley (optional)

Heat olive oil in pan, add chicken and cook until done; set aside. Melt butter in a pan over medium heat. Add mushrooms and onion powder and saute until slightly softened. Add the garlic cloves and artichokes and cook for 1 minute. Add the half &  half and beef bouillon and simmer until bouillon is dissolved. Add the cream cheese and simmer until it is smooth. Add the parmesan cheese and stir until combined. At this point, combine the pasta, chicken and cream sauce. Add in the grape tomatoes and serve. May sprinkle with dried parsley.
