Chicken and Pasta

This dish comes together in 20-25 minutes for those days you are short on cooking time.


  • 2 large chicken boneless, skinless chicken breasts, diced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 2 Tbsp. oil
  • 1/2 - 1 cup peas
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 8 oz. thin spaghetti


Cook spaghetti according to package directions, drain.

Meanwhile, over medium-high heat, add oil to a large frying pan. When oil is hot, saute chicken and onions until chicken is browned and cooked through. Add cooked pasta and the peas, toss with chicken and onions. Add heavy cream and bring to a boil for 3-4 minutes until cream thickens and clings to chicken/pasta mixture. Remove from heat and top with Parmesan cheese.

Yummm! This sounds very good & oh so easy. I, myself, though, would add a couple of cloves garlic, minced sauteed with the chicken & onions. Thanks
