Basil Chicken

Chicken with a hearty helping of basil simmered in a fresh tomato sauce.  This meal is great for company, too, because you can have all the ingredients ready and quickly throw them together in a few minutes.



Serves 4 – 6 


Boil a large stockpot of water, then add:

1 (16 ounce) bag gluten-free penne pasta

Cook the pasta according to package instructions.   Meanwhile place in a medium sized stockpot:

2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breast halves, (or 3 chicken breast halves) cut into ¼-inch cubes 

Add enough water to cover chicken in pot.  Bring to a boil and cook for 10 minutes.  Then remove from heat, drain water, and keep chicken warm.

In a large skillet, add:

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped (½ cup)
3 cloves of garlic, minced

Cook onion on medium heat, until soft and translucent.  Then reduce heat to low and stir in:

3 cups chopped fresh tomatoes (preferably grape or cherry tomatoes)
¼ cup chopped fresh or dehydrated basil leaves
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
½ teaspoon sea salt
⅛ teaspoon black pepper

Simmer for 5 minutes or until tomatoes have softened.  Drain and rinse pasta, then add to pan along with the chicken.  Cook for an additional 3 – 4 minutes and serve.
