Saucy Chicken Skillet

What I love about this recipe is how EASY it is to make, and how delicious and filling it is. Originally found on recipezaar (from Mama’s kitchen), and I think anything that has cream cheese in it is good… It goes with EVERYTHING!! 🙂
I altered just about every ingredient but stayed with the concept. I LOVE finding interesting recipes and changing things my way 🙂

This is also another 1-2 pot meal which makes cleanup awesssommee! There were so many leftovers I was even enjoying it cold!

Ingredients:

  • 1 LB boneless Skinless breast
  • 1 Green bell pepper, loose chop
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup blue cheese dressing
  • 1 med onion, chopped
  • 1 TBsp dried basil or 2 TBsp fresh
  • 1/2-3/4 cup crushed tomatoes

Steps:

  1. Boil 1 LB penne (or pasta desired) in large pot.
  2. Cut Chicken into cubes and saute 3/4 done. set aside
  3. Saute garlic and onions, then add peppers. When Onions are brown and peppers are soft add back the chicken.
  4. Add in broth, cream cheese, blue cheese, crushed tomatoes and basil. Let simmer and flavors blend ~20 mins.
  5. Toss in penne in separate bowl or if skillet is large enough. Serve with melted Mozz. cheese on top if desired!
