Directions

  1. Cook and drain pasta as directed on package. In resealable food-storage plastic bag, place dressing and chicken. Seal bag; refrigerate 15 minutes.
  2. In 12-inch skillet, heat 1 tablespoon vegetable oil over medium-low heat. Drain chicken, discarding dressing. Add chicken to skillet. Cook chicken 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until juice of chicken is clear when center of thickest part is cut (at least 165°F). Stir in wine; cook until most of the wine has evaporated. Stir in cooking sauce, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Simmer uncovered 4 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until hot.
  3. Serve over pasta. Top with basil and Parmesan cheese.

Footnotes

  • Grilled chicken breasts can be used instead.
  • Crusty whole wheat rolls would make a nice accompaniment to this pasta dish. You can purchase frozen chicken breasts that are already flattened--usually they are smaller in size than the fresh ones.

We liked this. We thought this was flavorful. I made a few changes I used only 3 chicken breast and after marinating I sliced the chicken so it only takes a few minutes to cook before adding all the other ingredients. I also didn't use all the salt, it doesn't need it.

The sauce was quite runny on this. I think the sauce needs to be thickened. I also thought this needed more seasoning since it was quite bland. Wasn't a fan of this one.

i did not try it. I am disappointed at how many recipes I am finding using prepared sauce mixes. Most people don't cook using anything but fresh ingredients. Even those who use mixes probably don't keep them on hand. I suggest that we encourage this site to provide a separate heading for recipes using additives that are not part of the common pantry.

It was a very bland recipe. Needed more spices. DH doesn't want me to make it again unless I can add something to flavor it up. Maybe onions or diced tomatoes with basil. Lots leftover and had to throw it out.
