Ingredients

  • 8 ounces tagliatelle pasta 230g
  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3 tablespoons flour divided
  • 2 tablespoons oil from the sun-dried tomatoes jar or frying oil/clarified butter
  • 5 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup chopped sun-dried tomatoes from a jar
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine or more broth with a drizzle of lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream 240ml
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese 45g
  • a large handful fresh spinach
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta al dente according to the package instructions (it should have a bite to it).
  • Cut the chicken breasts in half horizontally so that you have 4 thinner cutlets. Season the chicken on both sides with Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper.
  • Dredge in 2 1/2 tablespoons of flour, reserve the remaining 1/2 tablespoon for the sauce.
  • Heat the oil in a large frying pan. Add the chicken and cook over medium-high heat on both sides until browned. Transfer to a plate (the chicken doesn't have to be cooked through at this point).
  • Lower the heat to low and add finely chopped garlic and the remaining flour. Cook for 30 seconds.
  • Add the wine and cook over medium heat until almost evaporated.
  • Add the broth, cream, and sun-dried tomatoes. Cook for 2-3 minutes until slightly thickened.
  • Add parmesan cheese and cook briefly until melted. Season the sauce with salt (if needed) and pepper to taste.
  • Add the chicken back to the pan. Simmer in the sauce until cooked through.
  • Add the spinach and cook for about 30 seconds or until wilted.
  • Serve the chicken and sauce with cooked pasta.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

  • Chop the garlic with a knife and do not press it through a garlic press or the garlic flavor will be too harsh.
