 This is a delicious pasta dish with chicken and mushrooms.  The sun-dried tomatoes and prosciutto ham give it an incredible flavor!

NOTE:  I doubled this recipe  – so the pictures below show twice the ingredients.  Ingredients stated is for a single recipe.

Prepare all ingredients ahead of time so they are ready to add when stated.

Cook and slice chicken, boil pasta, slice sun-dried tomatoes, slice mushrooms, dice prosciutto ham, measure all other ingredients.

1/2 pound Farfalle – (which is the fancy name for bow tie pasta) boiled to al dente (about 11 – 12 minutes), drained

6 T. butter

3 T. flour

1  – 14.5 oz. can 99% fat free chicken broth

1/2 cup half-and-half

1  1/4 cups grated parmesan cheese

2 chicken breasts, cooked and sliced or cubed

8 oz. mushrooms, sliced

1/3 cup  sun-dried tomatoe brochette  

1  1/2 oz. prosciutto ham

1/4  tsp.  seasoned salt

1/4 tsp. garlic granules

1/4 tsp. pepper

3 T. shredded Parmesan cheese for topping

I cut the chicken breasts in half  lengthwise and cooked them in a non-stick frying pan (no oil added).  I seasoned them with pepper and garlic granules.

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

6 T. butter

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.

1 Farfalle with Chicken and Mushrooms (10)

 

3 T. flour

Whisk in flour to make a rue.

1 Farfalle with Chicken and Mushrooms (11)

1  – 14.5 oz. can 99% fat free chicken broth

Gradually stir in chicken broth.  Heat and simmer for a few minutes to thicken.  Remove from heat.

1/4 tsp. garlic granules

1/4 tsp. pepper

Stir in seasonings.

1 Farfalle with Chicken and Mushrooms (16)

1/3 cup  sun-dried tomatoes brochetta

Note:  The original recipe called for  1/2 cup oil packed sun-dried tomatoes, drained and cut into thin strips, which is shown in the picture.  By mistake, the second time I made this, I bought sun-dried tomato bruchetta.  It gave it such a great flavor – now I buy this all the time.  It is quite oily so I blot it with a paper towel to absorb some of the oil.

Stir in tomatoes.
