Grilled Chicken Penne in Roasted Garlic Sauce

This is one of those dishes that looks good, feeds many, tastes great, and is easy to make. The roasted garlic sauce may sound difficult, but it’s really simple and it can be used in lots of different dishes.

Ingredients:

1 cup heavy cream

1 cup whole milk

¼ cup chicken broth

¼ onions, diced

1 cup sliced mushrooms

2 bulbs of garlic, separated and peeled somewhat

2 tablespoon olive oil

¼ cup sun dried tomatoes, diced

3 chicken breasts, sliced and grilled (I like use already prepared grilled chicken)

5 – 6 oz bag fresh spinach

Salt and pepper

Penne noodles

Separate the garlic cloves, leaving one thin layer of skin. Place on a sprayed cookie sheet and roast for 25-30 minutes at 400 degrees. Let the garlic cool, peel, and mash.

Sauté the sliced mushrooms in 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Remove from pan. Sauté onions and remove from pan.

Place the mashed garlic, milk, and heavy cream in the pan, cook on medium heat and whisk together until smooth. Add the mushrooms, onions, sun dried tomatoes and salt and pepper to taste. Continue stirring over medium heat. (Add some chicken broth if it gets too thick.) Add the spinach and cover. Turn down the heat. Once the spinach is reduced, add the grilled chicken. Pour over cooked penne noodles. Top with any type of Italian cheese.

That was dinner and this was entertainment. Five little friends took up residence in the hanging plant in the backyard.

  1. You always have the best recipes. Are any of these your own creations? I’m adding this one to my grocery list this weekend:-)

    • Hey Jamie!

      Most of the recipes are my own unless I say I got it from someone. I’m bascially a very lazy cook so I just put a little bit of this and a little bit of that and cross my finers.This one is my own but the roasted garlic sauce is from a Macaroni Grill dish, Pasta Milano. Hope you enjoy it!
