5-1-16 TRYING SOMETHING NEW
Chicken, Broccoli Rabe, Sundried tomatoes – ingredients I have often used with my pasta, but never together…at least until tonight.
2. Chicken tenders
3. Broccoli Rabe
4. Sundried Tomatoes in oil finely chopped
5. Garlic and onion
6. Fresh Basil
7. Olive oil
8. White wine
9. Fresh lemon juice
10. Salt & pepper
11. Parmigiana cheese
Brown the chicken in olive oil, remove and cut into bite size pieces, and return to pan to saute with the garlic, onion, and sundried tomatoes and fresh basil. After 4-5 minutes add the wine and allow it to cook down. Then add the lemon juice.
In the mean time bring a pot of water to boil, add the broccoli rabe and blanch for about 3 minutes. Remove and add to the chicken.
Cook the pasta in the same water, and when finished, mix with the chicken and broccoli rabe. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with cheese and serve.
Save some pasta water if the dish is too dry. This was an interesting and delightful new way to use Broccoli Rabe with pasta. We will definitely have this again.
