Semi-Homemade! Quick, easy and delicious pasta dish courtesy of Pillsbury.
If you haven't used italian dressing in your cooking, you are in for a very pleasant surprise! I also love using Progresso Recipe Starters for a quick and delicious meal when I just don't have the time to spend in the kitchen.
Sometimes I have other things to do besides slave away in the kitchen!
- 2 cups uncooked penne pasta
- 1/2 cup Italian dressing
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts (4 to 5 oz each), flattened slightly
- 1/4 cup white wine
- 1 pouch (9 oz) Progresso™ Recipe Starters™ creamy Parmesan basil cooking sauce
Cook and drain pasta as directed on package. In resealable food-storage plastic bag, place dressing and chicken. Seal bag; refrigerate 15 minutes.
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.
Serve over pasta. Top with basil and Parmesan cheese.
