Asparagus and Chicken Pasta recipe

Preparation Time: 3 minutes | Cooking Time: 15 minutes

Asparagus and chicken get a home-style Italian makeover with a basil-wine sauce. Served over pasta with Parmesan cheese, it makes for a satisfying summer meal-in-a-bowl.

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound pasta, penne or any type you like
  • 8 asparagus spears, cut into 2-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 4-ounce skinless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • ¼ cup white wine
  • ½ cup parmesan cheese

Directions:

  1. Cook the pasta in a pot of boiling water according to package directions, 9 to 10 minutes. Drain and set aside.

  2. Meanwhile, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium. Add chicken and cook until lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes, stirring. Add asparagus and basil and cook until softened, 3 minutes.

  3. Add salt, pepper, and wine; bring to a boil over high heat, reduce, and simmer until liquid is almost gone and chicken is cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes.

  4. Add reserved pasta and the parmesan cheese to skillet; toss to coat and serve immediately.

Can you use something other than wine, if you don't drink alcohol?

The alcohol all boils off. All you have is the taste.

Very good. A little dry so I added some Italian dressing and it was perfect! I used fettuccine since I didn't gave penne.

Made this tonight... my husband gave it an 8 out of 10 and my daughters ate it up! I added more asparagus and used 1/3 cup wine. Yummy recipe!

I've made a lot of the recipes on AsparagusRecipes.net and this is one of my favorites! Definite 5 stars and will be making again and again.

I used fresh basil chopped with a hachoir.

This was very good. I blanched the asparagus before cooking it to make sure it wasn't overcooked. Very yummy.

Pretty darn good! I added extra asparagus so I should have put a little extra wine and salt in. Other than that it's really good!
