  • ● 1 lb. boneless, skinless, chicken breast halves, seasoned with salt and pepper
  • ● 24 dry jumbo pasta shells, (about 6 oz.)
  • ● 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • (Sauce)
  • ● 1 1/2 c. heavy cream
  • ● 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • ● 1 stick unsalted butter (8 Tbsp.)
  • ● 1 1/2 c. grated Parmesan, divided
  • ● 2 tsp. black pepper
  • ● 4 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley, divided



Step 1

1. Spray two 24-cup mini muffin tins with nonstick spray; set aside. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

2. Cook shells in boiling water until al dente, 12-15 minutes; drain and rinse under cold water.

3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add chicken and sauté until cooked through, 8-9 minutes per side; cool slightly, then chop into small pieces.

4. Warm cream and garlic in a large saucepan over medium-low heat until steaming.

5. Whisk in butter until melted.

6. Add 1 c. Parmesan, 2 tsp. pepper, and 2 Tbsp. parsley.

7. Increase heat to medium-high and simmer until reduced to 1 cup, about 10 minutes.

8. Stir in chicken and remove from heat.

9. Fill each shell with 1 heaping Tbsp. chicken mixture.

10. Stagger filled shells, open ends up, in every other muffin tin well to
prevent them from sticking to each other.

11. Sprinkle shells with remaining 1/2 c. Parmesan.

12. Broil shells until sauce bubbles and Parmesan melts and is golden, about 2 minutes. Garnish shells with remaining 2 Tbsp. parsley.
