How to Make Crispy Italian Chicken Breasts with Pasta

Step-by-Step

  1. Place chicken breasts between two pieces of plastic wrap. Using a meat mallet pound out to 1/4 inch thick.

  3. While chicken is cooking, boil the angel hair pasta in salted water for 4-5 minutes. Drain.
    In pasta pot, sauté garlic in 2 Tablespoons olive oil until light golden and fragrant.
    Add the pasta back to the pot along with the can of diced tomatoes and basil. Toss until combined.
    Sprinkle each serving with a little grated parmesan cheese. Enjoy!
