Italian Chicken Breasts Over Angel Hair Pasta


Larry, Logan and I all really liked the chicken and pasta dish. It was super easy and light! I had some chicken strips in the freezer, so I thawed those to use. I marinated them for about an hour before cooking. I just ended up dumping the marinated chicken strips and dressing into a large skillet and sauteing them on the stove top. This worked great. I'm sure the oven would work equally as well.

Both guys were crazy about the Spinach Caesar Salad, too. M.C. liked the dressing, but she isn't crazy about spinach, so this salad wasn't her favorite. I did make the little homemade dressing, adding just a bit of anchovy paste. This gives the dressing just a tiny zip that makes it extra good! You can find anchovy paste in the grocery near the canned tuna and salmon. (No one carries it in Pontotoc, but you can get it at Kroger in Tupelo.)

Well, I still didn't get to make Mub's
Green Onion, Cheese, and Sour Cream Drop Biscuits, as we had two loaves of bread leftover from Macaroni Grill from the week-end. It's feast or famine with the bread around here lately!! I'm going to keep adding these biscuits to my menu until I get to make them!!

This recipe was inspired by one I came across the other day, unfortunately, I forgot to note where I found it! I think it sounds yummy and very healthful, too!

Angel Hair pasta, cooked according to package directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Fill pasta pot with water and turn burner to simmer.

Place chicken breasts in a sprayed baking dish and cover with dressing.
Cover with foil and bake for 30 minutes. Remove cover for last 5 min. (OR saute in a skillet until done and tender.)
Bring water to a full boil. Add pasta when you remove the foil from the chicken.
