Ingredients

  • 6

    boneless, skinless chicken tenders, thawed

  • 2

    tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

  • Fresh ground pepper, to taste

  • 1 1/2

    tablespoons butter

  • 2

    tablespoons flour

  • 1/2

    cup onions, chopped finely

  • 2

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 1/2

    shallot, minced

  • 1/4

    cup sun dried tomatoes, chopped (in package, NOT oil packed)

  • 1/4

    cup fresh basil, chopped

  • 1 1/2

    cups reduced sodium chicken broth

  • 1/2

    cup regular cream

  • 1/4

    16 ounce package whole wheat spaghetti, uncooked

Directions

Heat olive oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add chicken & grind fresh pepper on each side. Cover & cook until done, about 5 minutes on each side. (When done, chicken will have NO pink on the inside.) Remove from heat and set aside, keeping covered. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, & shallots, cooking 1-2 minutes, just until soft. Add sun dried tomatoes; stir. With a whisk in hand, add flour & stir. Slowly pour in chicken broth, whisking constantly to remove any lumps. Add cream, still whisking. Whisk that sucker to death! (just kidding). Continue whisking for 3-4 minutes or until sauce begins to thicken. Take off heat and let sit; it will continue to thicken, feel free to stir every so often as you cook the spaghetti: Cook spaghetti according to package directions. It is done when it is soft, but still has a bite; al dente please. Add fresh basil to sun dried tomato sauce and give it a good stir. Place spaghetti noodles on serving plates, placing chicken directly on top of noodles. Spoon as much sauce as you would like over chicken & noodles; enjoy! Tips: *To keep spaghetti noodles from sticking together after you drain them, add a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil over & toss. *You could also grill the chicken; that would be super yummy in this dish. Make slight changes and brush the olive oil over each chicken tender before grilling on foil. Grill on medium-low heat until done. *Goes great with cooked asparagus & crusty bread.
