CHICKEN ALFREDO PENNE
A nice variation on the original!
WHAT YOU'LL NEED:
3 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 pound skinless boneless chicken breast halves cut into strips
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 cup heavy cream
2 cloves garlic
1/2 pound penne pasta uncooked

HOW TO MAKE IT:
Step 1: Start by cutting chicken breasts into 1 inch pieces. Season with 1/2 a teaspoon of kosher salt and a few turns of pepper.
Step 2: Brown chicken in olive oil over medium high heat.

Step 5: Add chicken broth, cream, and uncooked pasta to pan and stir.
Step 6: Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to a simmer.
