Angel Hair Pasta with Sundried Tomato and Chicken

Let’s make a simple, seasonal, and delicious pasta dish.  I’ve shown you how to make your own sundried tomatoes, now it’s time to take those (or you can buy them, it is a time saver), a bit of chicken and some angel hair pasta, to make a great pasta recipe in about 20 minutes.  It’s even simpler if you happen to have some left over chicken, but even if you don’t, cooking a chicken breast only adds about 10 minutes to the process.  Hope you enjoy it as much as I do, and let me know how it goes.

Recipe Overview and Keys to Success

  1. Angel hair pasta, even dried, cooks very quickly, so watch the clock, and taste it often to prevent it from overcooking and becoming mushy. I start the sauce the same time as my pasta so they come together at about the same time.
  2. The flavor in this dish comes from some of the “lessor” ingredients…the parmesan cheese, garlic, shallot, lemon…so don’t skimp, and don’t burn the garlic. Oh yeah…season with salt and pepper.
  3. A knob of butter or a glug of good olive oil at the end will really help add some flavor, and lubricate the pasta…I don’t skip this step.


Ingredients (for about 2 people)

  • 1/3 lbs of angel hair pasta
  • 1 medium shallot diced
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1/4 cup of sundried tomatoes
  • 3 tablespoons parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped basil
  • 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup of diced cooked chicken
  • Dash red pepper flakes

Making the Angel Hair Sundried Tomato Pasta

  • If you don’t have leftover chicken, cook a small boneless skinless breast, and dice into inch by inch pieces
  • Bring a pot of water to the boil and salt the water; separately, heat a non-stick pan over medium heat
  • Add the pasta to the water and stir
  • Add olive oil to the sauté pan, and add the shallot and garlic, sauté until just soft
  • Add the sundried tomatoes to the pan, and toss, season with salt and pepper to start the "sauce"
  • Hold the hold on low temp until the pasta is done; once done turn the heat up to max before adding the pasta in
  • Add the chicken once the pasta is cooked; drain the angle hair pasta, and add it to the pan along with another glug of olive oil, salt and pepper
  • Toss everything to incorporate
  • Turn the heat off, add the basil, parmesan cheese, and a good squeeze of lemon
  • Toss to combine, taste, and re-season with salt and pepper if needed
  • Serve it up and garnish with a bit more parmesan cheese
