Pioneer Womans Penne a la Betsy with Chicken

Pioneer Woman's Blog is a must see. This recipe came from her blog. The hubby and I aren't fond of seafood... so I replaced seafood with Chicken. It still turned out exceptional.


Chicken- about 1 lb cut into cubes

1 lb Penne- or other short pasta

3-Tbsp Butter

3-Tbsp Olive Oil

1 small onion- chopped

2 cloves of garlic- minced

1/2 cup- Dry white wine or chicken broth

8 oz tomato sauce

1 Cup heavy whipping cream

Tbsp Parsley- chopped

Tbsp Basil- chopped

Salt & Pepper

Bring a pot of water to a boil. Add penne and cook according to directions. Drain

In a skillet- heat 1 tablespoon of butter and olive oil. Add the chicken and cook. Move to a plate to cool.

Now heat 2 tablespoons of butter and olive oil again in a skillet. Add garlic and onion. Cook for about 5-7 minutes. Add white wine, tomato sauce and whipping cream. Stir all together. Turn heat to low.

Add the chicken to the tomato suace. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Throw in the herbs and stir together. Add the penne to the mixture now also. Serve.
