Since I spend most of my free time in the garage and not in the kitchen, I’m teaming up with some friends to feature their recipes. The ulterior motive here (besides diversifying the blog a bit) is that maybe I’ll start using my spatulas and wisks for more than just mixing paint too! Oh Dave can only dream…
First up, Eleni shares a yummy and easy chicken and pasta dish. For the best flavor, she recommends marinating the chicken overnight and then tossing it on the grill. Read on for the full recipe and cooking instructions (a printable is available at the end for safe keeping!)
– 2 large boneless/skinless chicken breasts
– 1 box penne pasta
– 1 small container of feta cheese
– 1 pkg mushrooms (I used baby bella)
– 1/2 stick butter
– 1/2 cup olive oil
– 1 cup basalmic vinegar
– 1 T oil
– 1 T dried basil
– 1 T minced garlic
Mix all marinade ingredients and marinate overnight. While grilling chicken, boil pasta in slated water until al dente. Then drain. Next, saute mushrooms in small amount of olive oil until tender. Once chicken is done, cut into small slices.
Melt together butter and olive oil. Pour over pasta. Stir in mushrooms. Add chicken and container of feta. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
Enjoy! ~ Eleni
Aside from the feta (I’ve never been a fan) this sounds like something even I could plate up for the family. Feel free to print out this handy recipe card and check back next week for another hump-day fare share. You can also click to sign up for updates – via Email.
