How to make Italian Chicken Pasta in Creamy White Wine, Parmesan, Cheese Sauce
Step 1: Start by slicing the chicken breasts horizontally. Alternately, you simply use thin chicken breasts. Then, pat them dry using a paper towel.
Step 2: Place the flour, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, and Italian seasoning in a large bowl. Mix well. Coat the chicken breasts in the flour mixture using a fork or tongs. Press the chicken breasts into the flour mixture before flipping and coating the other side. Set aside.
Step 3: In a large skillet, heat 2 tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat. Place the coated chicken breasts in the skillet once the oil is hot and sear for about 4 to 5 minutes per side or until both sides are golden brown and the chicken is completely cooked, flipping once. Set the chicken aside when done.
Step 4: To make the sauce, place the butter, diced yellow onion, and minced garlic cloves in a pan. Cook for about 2 minutes over medium heat or until the onions and garlic are translucent. Then, add the chopped scallions and tomatoes. Add 1 tbsp flour and stir well until blended. Next, pour in the heavy cream and wine. Season with Italian Seasoning, salt, and red pepper flakes. Bring everything to a simmering point before adding a half cup of the shredded Parmesan cheese. Stir well using a whisk or wooden spoon until smooth.
Step 5: Following the package directions, cook the pasta until al dente. Drain when done, but do not rinse.
Step 6: To assemble: With the sauce in the skillet, add to the cooked pasta. Toss and cook for about 2 to 4 minutes over low heat. If needed, season with extra salt. Place the chicken back into the skillet over the pasta and heat for about 5 minutes.
Step 7: Enjoy the chicken over or next to the pasta. If desired, sprinkle with more Parmesan cheese.
