Creamy Dreamy Chicken on Pasta
This easy meal cooks in the oven with little clean-up required. The chicken is juicy and has an unexpected taste from to yellow bell pepper.
The baking time will vary with the size of the chicken so check it, when 155 degrees is reached, pull from oven and just let it rest. It will finish cooking and balance the juices on its own.
2 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 yellow bell pepper sliced lengthwise
1 can (14.5 oz) diced tomatoes, drained
1 jar (15 oz) Alfredo sauce
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
½ teaspoon dried oregano leaves
½ tsp garlic powder
¼ teaspoon white pepper
1 small jar of mushrooms
½ box pasta such as rotini (the ridges hold the sauce)
Pre heat oven to 350 degrees
Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish
Cut the top and bottom off the yellow pepper, cut down the side, then flatten and cut into strips.
In a large, combine the alfredo and tomato sauces and the drained chopped tomatoes.
Stir in the drained mushrooms. Mix in the seasonings (garlic, basil, oregano and pepper).
Arrange the chicken breasts and pepper slices into the baking dish and pour mixture over.
Sprinkle with asiago cheese and cover tightly with foil.
Cook for about 1½ hours, or until the chicken reads 155 on instant read thermometer (you poke this right through the foil into the chicken)
Remove from oven and let rest while you boil the pasta. Remove foil and place the breasts on a platter. Use a slotted spoon to dish out the sauce. This will be served over the pasta as the guest wishes.
Slave chose to serve a simple side of green beans. Besides sitting and snapping the beans allows me to center and focus on the people I'm cooking for.
What a wonderful table full of surprising tastes. The touch of yellow peppers makes this a special meal.
For our music:
So happy for the opportunity to serve my Master Indy.
To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain

PS: a quick note on the Alfredo sauce. Just just a
few months ago, slave ordered a package of
underwear. When opening the package imagine
the surprise of finding a bottle of Alfredo sauce
included. No note as to why or how. There was just
a bottle of this rich white sauce nested next to my
new tighty-whities! Who else could this happen to?
