How to Make Penne with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Chicken


  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2Put the sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl, add 1/2 cup boiling water and set the bowl aside for the tomatoes to reconstitute.
  • 3Fill a large pot with water, and bring it to a boil.
  • 4Combine the chicken and the wine in a shallow baking dish.
  • 5Sprinkle the Italian seasoning on top.
  • 6Bake for 15-20 minutes, until the meat is no longer pink and the juices run clear.
  • 7Remove and shred the chicken, reserving the cooking juices.
  • 8Drain the sun-dried tomatoes and slice them thin.
  • 9Pour the reserved cooking juices from the chicken into a saute pan.
  • 10Add the shallot, mushrooms, peas and tomatoes.
  • 11Saute over low heat for a few minutes, until the liquid has been absorbed and the vegetables are wilted.
  • 12Remove the pan from the heat and cover it to keep the vegetables warm.
  • 13Add the penne to the boiling water in the large pot and cook over high heat to desired doneness, 8-12 minutes.
  • 14While the pasta is cooking, make the sauce.
  • 15Preheat a small heavy saucepan for about 1 minute over medium heat, then spray it twice with the vegetable oil.
  • 16Toss in the garlic and flour, then whisk in the evaporated milk.
  • 17Add the nutmeg and red pepper flakes.
  • 18Whisking constantly, bring the mixture to a boil and continue cooking for about 5 minutes, until thickened.
