Feeling Foodie Friday: Chicken Penne

Jello loves! (I was going thru my drafts and saw this, it's been stewing there since September. I kept on missing Friday and ended up forgetting to post this. I am utterly bored with my life right now, need to do something else other than lurk on online shops. So blogging it is.

Here's a new portion of my blog called "Feeling Foodie Friday" where I pretend to be a food blogger and post highfalutin recipes on Fridays. Anyway, my first recipe is a recipe (that I found on the first page of google) which I altered since I'm cool like that... actually no, I just didn't find all the ingredients in our local grocery store. So let's get on with it!

  • 2 cans of meat and mushroom tomato sauce
  • 3 pieces of tomatoes (chopped)
  • 3 cloves of garlic (minced)
  • 1 onion bulb (minced)
  • 3 tablespoons of butter
  • 1 small carton of all purpose cream
  • 1/2 pound of shredded chicken
  • 3/4 kilo of penne pasta

First, boil/steam the chicken until it's cooked. While waiting for the chicken to finish, cook the pasta in boiling water with salt. To make sure that my pasta was "al dente" (fancy way of saying that your pasta is firm but not undercooked) I fished one out with a spoon and poked it with my finger (yes I know, unsanitary eww haha #rebel).

After boiling/steaming your chicken, set aside two small bowls of chicken broth for the pasta sauce.

Saute garlic, onion, and tomato in butter on the skillet for 3 mins. Stir in the tomato sauce and cream. Then add the chicken broth and cook on high for about 4 mins or until sauce is slightly reduced. Add the chicken; and finally salt and pepper to taste. Mix the sauce with the pasta and top it off with lotsa cheese! Bitches love cheese. Hahaha I kid. 

So here is the final product, sorry it looks pretty unappetizing. It's the lighting, I swear! It tasted so freaking good everybody actually had more than 1 serving. (bragging rights right here oh yeah)
