Ingredients

  • 4 cups uncooked penne pasta
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips, divided
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
  • 1 cup marsala wine

  • 1 cup 2% milk
  • 1 envelope creamy pesto sauce mix
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh basil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. In a Dutch oven, heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium-high heat. Add half of the chicken; cook and stir until no longer pink; remove from the pan. Repeat with remaining oil and chicken; remove from the pan.

This has become one of my favorite dishes! The sauce has an amazing flavor. Lately, I've been making the sauce and pouring it over quinoa, which is also excellent.

I've made this a number of times. It is a quick easy meal to get on the table after work and one that my family enjoys. I buy the Knorr's packet when they go on sale and all the other ingredients I usually have on hand so it's always easy to put together in a pinch. I do not include the fresh basil.

My husband and sons loved this dinner. I used muscato wine instead from belle bolle. For some reason it will not let me click anything other than three stars but I would give it 5 :)
