Pasta with chicken breast, arugula, tomatoes and garlic & # 8211 quick recipe

Pasta with chicken breast, arugula, tomatoes and garlic & # 8211 quick recipe. How to make the best chicken pasta? Simple and quick recipe for penne with chicken breast, arugula salad and cherry tomatoes. Pasta recipes. Chicken breast recipes.

There are busy days when we only have an hour to cook and eat. On such a day I also cooked these pasta with chicken breast, arugula, tomatoes and garlic. I used short pasta (penne) but you can also use other models such as farfalle, rigatoni, snails, fusilli or even tagliatelle or macaroni.

With this recipe we can sit at the table in 20 minutes. Until the pasta is cooked, the other ingredients are ready, just like in the pasta recipe with ham and cream sauce (the recipe here), chicken breast with marinara sauce (the recipe here) or pasta with mushrooms and cream sauce (the recipe here).

As I enter the kitchen the first thing is to boil a pot of water. I calculate about 1 l of water per 100 g of pasta and approx. 90-100 g of pasta per person - because this sauce is not very consistent. For "more serious" sauces (gen ragu alla bolognese or carbonara) calculate 80-90 g of dry pasta / person.

Instead of chicken breast you can choose boneless thighs or turkey breast. If you do not like arugula you can use tender baby spinach leaves or other salad of your choice (valerianella for example). I leave you with the recipe for two portions of pasta with chicken breast, arugula, tomatoes and garlic.

Prepare the chicken breast in tomato sauce. We cut the meat into small cubes that we season with salt and pepper and let them rest for 20 minutes, stirring them from time to time to season well. Heat the oil and brown the chicken breast pieces in it, and at the end, add a tablespoon of melted butter to give the meat creaminess. Transfer the meat to another bowl and keep it warm, covered.

Add to the remaining fat in the pan, first the onion and 2 cloves of finely chopped garlic. Mix them well until they change color, then add the grated carrot and finely chopped pepper. Again, mix the ingredients well. We add 2-3 tablespoons of water to speed up their penetration, but also to prevent them from burning. When all the ingredients are well penetrated, add the tomato juice and the tomato paste.

Let the sauce boil for 5-6 minutes, during which time season it. Add basil, oregano, a little grated ginger and a clove of grated garlic. Then add the chicken breast pieces and boil them together for a few more minutes, to intertwine the tastes.

We prepare wholemeal pasta. Bring water to a boil with salt, just like for classic pasta. When it starts to boil, add the wholemeal pasta and cook for 10-12 minutes. Add a tablespoon of melted butter for creaminess. Drain the wholemeal pasta and add them to the tomato sauce with chicken breast. Add a little more water, mix well and sprinkle with grated parnesan.

Here's how to do it:

1. Boil the pasta in salted water for 10-15 minutes, depending on the time recommended by the manufacturer.

2. Drain and rinse with warm water.

4. Mix the pasta with the butter, eggs and boiled meat.

5. Put the composition in a pan greased with a little butter and put it in the oven,
