Chicken and Tomato Pasta with a Pepper Garlic Gravy

While looking for a new recipe, I found a delicious looking picture on Pinterest.  The recipe sounded as delicious as the picture, but too complicated. I simplified it and found my new favorite recipe! It is chicken, pasta and tomatoes with a pepper and garlic gravy. You have to try it!

Cook and prep time: 30 minutes

Serves 4

Ingredients:

1 lbs. chicken breast tenders

2 tsp. dried Rosemary (or 1 tsp of fresh)

2 tsp. black pepper

Juice of one lemon

2 tbsp. olive oil

4 cloves of garlic, minced

4 tbsp. of flour

2 cups of chicken broth

1 can of cannellini beans, rinsed

1 pint of grape tomatoes

Fresh parsley

1 lb. of angel hair pasta

Directions:

Cut chicken breasts tenders into small pieces. In a medium bowl, mix chicken pieces with Rosemary, pepper and lemon juice.

Heat up a large pan and add 1 tablespoon of olive oil. When hot, add chicken and cook 5 to 10 minutes or until cooked through. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.

Add another tablespoon of olive oil to pan and sauté garlic one minute. Pour in a tbsp of flour to create a roux. Slowly add the rest of the flour and broth, stirring constantly, until you get a nice thick sauce.

Return chicken to pan and bring to a boil. Add cannellini beans and tomatoes. Simmer for 5 minutes.

Serve over prepared angel hair pasta and sprinkle with fresh parsley.
