Easy and delicious chicken and bow-tie pasta with a white cream sauce.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
- 1 (12 ounce) package farfalle (bow tie) pasta
- 1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth
- 1 head broccoli, cut into florets
- 1 medium red bell pepper, thinly sliced
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- salt and pepper to taste
- 2 (8 ounce) containers chive and onion cream cheese
- 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Place chicken in a saucepan, and add water to cover. Boil 20 minutes. Allow to cool, then pull meat into shreds.
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.
In a large skillet over medium-high heat, combine chicken broth, red pepper, garlic, broccoli, salt and pepper. Cover, and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, until broccoli is crisp-tender. Stir in cream cheese until smooth. Mix in chicken and pasta until evenly coated. Garnish with Parmesan cheese.
