Basil Chicken Recipe


Grocery List

1 lb boneless chicken breast

5-6 diced tomatoes

8 oz. pasta (did I use 3 different kinds because that’s all we had left? yes.)

3 minced garlic cloves

1/4 c. olive oil

1/4 c. butter

1 handful of chopped basil leaves

red pepper flakes


Add oil to a pan and put on medium heat. Cover the chicken in salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Place the chicken in the pan and cook until browned 6-7 minutes on each side. While the chicken is cooking, get the pasta going. You can just follow the directions on the back!  When the chicken is done, put it to the side and simmer the pan. Once the oil is cooled, add the tomatoes. Mash the tomatoes until it is more like a sauce. Add the garlic, butter, and red pepper flakes. Mix it all together, then add the chicken and let it soak for a bit. Once chicken has soaked, add the basil (right before dishing- save some for garnish). Put the pasta, then chicken, and then basil leaves (garnish)! If you would like to, add cheese. We love cheese in this house, so that’s always a YES.


Enjoy, enjoy, enjoyyyy!

  1. Girl — I just wanted to stop by and let you know that I made this last night and it was so yummy! Hubby and I both loved it (and loved how simple it was!) and decided it needs to make its way into the regular rotation. Thanks for sharing it — now I want to stalk your blog for all your other recipes! 🙂
