We ended up having a small group last week…which meant having lots of leftovers of this delicious chicken and pasta…what a treat, it was sooooo good!!

SICILIAN CHICKEN Sicilian chicken 1

  • 3-4 boneless chicken breasts (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 10 tablespoons flour
  • 1 scant tablespoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh ground pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 medium yellow onion, sliced thin and chopped
  • 10 cloves garlic, diced
  • 5 tablespoons butter
  • 8 tablespooons olive oil
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 6 tablespoons fresh basil, coarsely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 16 ounces chicken broth
  • 16 ounces angel hair pasta
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese

Start heating a large pot of water with salt and olive oil for cooking the pasta.

Flatten chicken breasts and cut into 1/2" x 1" strips. In a plastic bag mix flour, pepper flakes, pepper and salt.

Thinly slice and cut up onion and garlic; chop tomatoes, parsley and basil.

Heat 1/2 of the butter and olive oil in a large skillet. Shake 1/2 of chicken strips in flour mixture and brown lightly. Remove from skillet, add remainder of butter and oil; heat, and add remainder of chicken. Remove chicken when browned. Save the remaining flour mix.

Add onion to the skillet, reduce heat, and saute until soft. Scrape chicken bits from bottom of skillet. Add garlic and saute very briefly (do not brown).

Add tomatoes, oregano, basil and parsley. Mix thoroughly and heat well; add remaining seasoned flour. Add chicken stock and simmer until thickened. Return chicken to skillet, mix thoroughly, and reduce heat to lowest setting to keep warm.

Add pasta to boiling water and cook according to directions, just a few minutes. Serve drained pasta on plates or in pasta bowls topped with sauce and shredded Parmesan cheese.
