Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb. chicken thighs skinless and boneless
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 cup chicken broth/stock sodium free
  • 1 cup cup heavy cream
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes chopped
  • 1/2 cup parmesan grated
  • 1 cup basil leaves
  • 10 oz pasta (linguine)

Instructions

  • Pat the chicken thighs dry with paper towels.
  • Preheat a large skillet on medium high heat. Add olive oil and then add the chicken and cook until golden brown on both sides. About 6-8 minutes total. Remove onto a plate.
  • Meanwhile cook pasta according to your package instructions in salty water. I like pasta that is neither too hard nor too soft, so I always cook it Al Dente. Drain, but do not rinse.
  • Add white wine and simmer for 2 minutes to let the alcohol evaporate.
  • Now add chicken stock heavy cream, Dijon mustard, salt, Italian Seasoning, onion and garlic powders. Bring the mixture to a low simmering point and then add Parmesan cheese. Use a whisk or a wooden spoon and mix it in until you have a smooth mixture.
  • Add basil leaves and cook until wilted. Chop your sun-dried tomatoes and add them to the pan.
  • Add cooked pasta to the skillet with the sauce and stir to combine on low heat for 2-4 minutes. Taste and add salt, if needed. Return chicken to skillet on top of the pasta and allow it to warm up for an additional 5 minutes.
  • SERVE chicken either on top or next to pasta and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, if desired.
