Sun-Dried Tomato and Chicken Pasta

Sun-Dried Tomato and Chicken Pasta
This is as good as it gets...even better then some Olive Garden dishes!!


1 Tablespoon Butter
2 Cloves garlic chopped (fresh or dried)
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes (dried or in oil)
1 cup Chicken broth (divided)
1 cup cream
2 large chicken breasts (shredded or chopped)
1 Tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
4 leaves basil chopped (I just used dried) but fresh would be the best!
1 Package bowtie or penne pasta (about 13.5 oz)*whole wheat tastes great.


Cook pasta, drain and set aside. Meanwhile melt butter, add garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Add tomatoes and 3/4 cup of chicken broth. Turn heat to medium and boil. Reduce heat after boiling and simmer for 10 minutes until the tomatoes are tender. Add the cream and bring to a boil, stirring until it thickens up. Meanwhile season the chicken with salt and pepper and warm the oil and saute the chicken until cooked. Set chicken aside. In the same pan used for the chicken, bring the other 1/4 cup of chicken broth to a boil and stir in the pan juices. Add this to the cream sauce and stir in the basil.Toss the pasta and sauce together and top with the chicken. ( I just mixed it all up together)
