If I were to name one go-to dish that always seems to hit the spot, that we always have all the ingredients for, it would be Albin's Rosemary Chicken and Pasta. Oh it's so delicious, and so simple. It's nothing fancy, just a regular favorite in our dinner rotation. There's just enough spice to give it some kick and keep things interesting. Fresh herbs from our garden and home-grown tomatoes make it even better. We usually serve it with a side of garlic bread and a big cucumber salad.
2 servings of linguine noodles.. prepared according to directions
For the Chicken:
2 Chicken Breasts (with tenderloins) cubed
1 tbs. olive oil
Salt and Pepper
1 large sprig of Fresh Rosemary, chopped up
optional: one tbs. white wine
optional: one sprig fresh thyme, chopped up
Mix all marinade ingredients in a bowl. Stir in chicken. Mix well and refrigerate for one hour.
After one hour, and you're ready to begin the rest of the items; pan fry chicken until done. (about 8-10 minutes on medium-high heat)
2 tbs. olive oil
2-3 garlic cloves, finely diced
crushed red pepper-- to taste. We use about 1tsp.
Salt and Pepper
6-7 fresh basil leaves
2 roma tomatoes
For the sauce: Add olive oil to pan on low heat; add garlic and sweat the garlic for 5 minutes. Add salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper. Keep on low heat for an additional 5 minutes. If needed, add more olive oil.
Toss with cooked noodles.
For the Roma Tomatoes: Blanche two Roma tomatoes. Dice blanched tomatoes and add to combined pasta. Cut fresh basil on top of tomatoes and serve.
This stuff is so so good. Enjoy!
