Chicken and Prosciutto in a Sun Dried Tomato Sauce

Hope everyone's Valentines Day/Weekend was great! .. as you can see i put weekend in there, b/c i tend to celebrate things a bit longer then they are intended .. my birthday for instance, even though i hate birthdays, is always a week long thing .. anywho .. how did you celebrate your day/weekend? ..

Here is the Chicken and Prosciutto in a Sun Dried Tomato Sauce recipe i made, and all the changes i made to the recipe . . . (picture right from Joe's stove)

  • 2 Chicken Breasts, cut into bite sized pieces (i used chicken tenderloins and cut them)
  • 1 Large onion, chopped
  • 1 Cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped (i used about 1.5 cups)
  • 1/2 lb of thick cut prosciutto, chopped (called for mushrooms but i opted for this instead)
  • 3/4-1lb of penne pasta (i used rigatoni)
  • 1/2 Cup white wine (i used Pinot Grigio and 3/4 of cup)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups of Heavy Cream or Half & Half (i used heavy cream and 1 and 3/4 cup)
  • 3/4 of can of tomato sauce (not the huge can, not the tiny can, but the medium size can)
  • Big fresh bunch of basil, chopped
  • 1 tbsp of fresh parsley (i skipped this, not a fan)
  • salt and pepper
  • Cook pasta to manufacturer’s directions
  • In a large skillet heat about 3 Tbsp of oil from the sun dried tomatoes over medium-high heat.  Place chicken in pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper (i did this before i put in the pan), sauté until cooked through.  Remove from the pan and set aside.
  • Melt 1 Tbsp of butter and oil in the same skillet.  Add garlic, onion, tomatoes, and prosciutto.
  • Sauté until onions are transparent and garlic is fragrant.
  • Reduce heat to medium; add wine allowing the wine to reduce for approximately 5 minutes.
  • Stir in tomato sauce and heavy cream (or half & half).  Bring sauce to a boil and reduce heat to low.
  • Add chicken back in sauce.
  • Stir in basil and parsley.
  • Add pasta and toss to coat.
  • Serve immediately. 
After dinner i served a homemade apple pie :o) .. Needless to say Joe and I gained a few pounds this weekend :o)~
