This is the first time I've ever made this Chicken Fusilli dish & it may be the most delicious recipe in blog history!
Sometimes, the best meals come without a recipe, or a plan & you just make it up as you go.
This was one of those times!
This healthy Chicken Fusilli preparation is quick & easy to make, you won't be dissapointed!
- 3 lbs of thin chicken cutlets
- 2 tbsps Ghee (you can substitute with butter)
- 3 tbsps of refined coconut oil
- 1 cup of chopped sun dried tomatoes
- 1/4 cup of olive oil saved from the sundried tomato jar
- 1/2 clove of pressed garlic
- 1 to 2 tbsps of sea salt
- 1 cup of white wine (I used Smoke Eater Pinot Grigio)
- 1 cup of chopped red onion
- 1 cup of chicken broth
- 3 to 4 tbsps of greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup of grated parmesan cheese
- 6 cups of cherry tomatoes cut in half
- 3/4 cup of fresh chopped basil
- 1 lb of long fusilli pasta
1- Cook the long fusilli pasta to al dente according to directions on the box & set aside.
2- In a large pan, saute the chicken cutlets in the ghee, coconut oil & olive oil from the sun dried tomato jar, cooking until they begin to turn golden brown & then set aside.
NOTE: It's best to slice the cutlets into medallians prior to sauteing them rather than afterwards. I figured this out half way through the preperation, (as you might notice in the video) because I was making things up as I went along. If you prefer you can saute them whole, cutting into medallians afterward.
3- In the same pan add the garlic & the wine to deglaze the pan.
4- Next, stir in the sun dried tomatoes & the onions until it begins to simmer & then add in the broth.
5- Allow to begin simmering again & then lightly wisk in the yogurt, while continuing to simmer & then add in the grated cheese & the cherry tomatoes.
6- Wait for mixture to begin simmering once again (if the simmering stopped) & then mix in the chicken,
making sure that all of the medallians are coated with the sauce.
7- Finally, mix in the pasta & sprinkle with fresh basil.
Enjoy with a glass of Smoke Eater "All Hands White" Pinot Grigio imported from Friuli Italy!
