Chicken Curry Pasta

Okay, I should be reading Harry at the moment, but I needed to take a little break. Shhh don't tell anyone.

In our house we have all have a special love for pasta. Really though who doesn't love it?
There is a versatility about it like none other. Not only that but it can be as simple and straight forwards as you want or you can easily spice things up.

We of course all have our favorite way of indulging in it too. Lilly for example will only eat pasta with nothing but Parmesan cheese all over it. Hubby and I love a bowl of spaghetti and meat sauce, and it is a staple in our home. But, every now and again you need to change things up, and pasta is one of those things I feel confident enough to create new recipes on my own...very slap and dash as my mother would say. So I created this recipe last night and my wonderful Hubby and I both severely over ate due to it being so incredibly good! He is already requesting that I make it again, and we just finished the left overs today! Super quick and easy too if you are looking for a weeknight meal.

Chicken in a curry cream sauce pasta:

  • Whole wheat pasta
  • 2 chicken breasts cut into strips
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Olive oil
Cook pasta according to package directions

In skillet heat oil and cook chicken strips until no longer pink. Remove from skillet and place off to the side keeping warm.

Adding more oil to pan fry garlic and onion until translucent. Add tomato and cook until tomato starts to soften. Pour in wine and saute until wine is almost gone.

Add curry powder to onion and tomato mixture, fry until fragrant. Add cream, and gently mix together. Simmer until sauce coats the back of the spoon. Return chicken to sauce, and stir until well coated and warmed through.

Serve over pasta and enjoy!
