IMG_1449

I think goat cheese makes all things better.  I could probably eat it in my breakfast cereal and like it.  This dish is SUPER simple and so fantastically delicious.  The creamy goat cheese blends so well with the tartness of the sun-dried tomatoes.  You will be impressed!

Preparations could not be much easier.

Once cooked and goat cheese added it becomes a creamy taste of heaven!

I feel like I always say this but for as simple as this dish is, it’s so impressive you will amaze your family and friends.  This mixture is served in a lot of our local restaurants for triple the price it will cost you to make it for a family of 4.  Give it a try!

Goat Cheese and Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta

4 thin chicken breasts cut into cubes (approximately 2 cups)

½ jar sun-dried tomatoes chopped finely (and ½ the oil and seasonings from in the jar)

Goat cheese crumbles (measure to your taste per dish)

5 Tbsp garlic flavored oil or olive oil

3 cloves minced garlic (approximately 2 Tbsp)

1 cup chicken stock or broth

16 oz box of pasta (penne is great for this dish)

Salt/Pepper to taste

Cook pasta according to directions

Heat 3 Tbsp oil and brown and cook the chicken until done

Once cooked add the chicken stock and garlic and bring to a boil

Turn heat off and add the sundried tomatoes with ½ jar of the oil and seasoning and 2 Tbsp garlic/olive oil stirring immediately to heat through

Serve over pasta and top with crumbled goat cheese

TIPS:

Stir the goat cheese immediately after putting on the pasta and it will melt and make the pasta creamy

You can also add chopped kale or spinach to this dish wilting it with the chicken stock.
