What To Make With Chicken Breast And Spaghetti Noodles?

The abundance of tomatoes and basil in my garden this year inspired me to make spaghetti with chicken and grape tomatoes.

Spaghetti with Chicken and Tomatoes

I plant all kinds of tomatoes, including grape tomatoes, every summer. Grape tomatoes are always the first to grow and ripen. I often have more salads than I can eat, so I like to use them to make new recipes. One of my favorite ways to prepare them is by adding them to pasta. This is a fantastic way to flavorfully utilize chicken breasts as well. Angel hair pasta with zucchini and tomatoes, sheet pan shrimp with broccolini and tomatoes, and spiralized zucchini and grape tomatoes are some additional recipes you might enjoy.

This flavorful and relatively simple tomato basil chicken pasta recipe is bursting with flavor. Using produce that is in season reduces the amount of additional ingredients you need. Fresh tomatoes, sautéed with garlic and salt and pepper, are the only ingredients in the sauce. I top it with fresh basil at the end.

What’s The Best Pasta Shape To Use?

I adore spaghetti for this recipe because it’s inexpensive, the buttery sauce coats the long noodles, and it’s a great way to eat your noodles. It also tastes great with pasta varieties like fettuccine, bucatini, linguine, and angel hair. Farfalle (bowtie), penne, or rotini are good choices if you prefer short noodles.

Regardless of the type of noodle you select, make sure to cook the pasta in a sizable pot of salted boiling water.

  • Choosing a large enough pot is critical to giving the pasta plenty of room to cook in water that’s at a rolling boil, which is how you stop the pasta from sticking together.
  • Salting the pasta water is your only chance to season the inside of the pasta, because the pasta will absorb that flavorful cooking water while it boils.
