Chicken and Basil Fettuccine

by Katrina - The Organised Housewife

An easy chicken pasta recipe that can be thrown together with a tasty BBQ chicken, a little basil and some sun-dried tomatoes.

This is a really easy (and tasty!) dinner idea can be made in the time it takes to cook pasta, with just three extra minutes needed!

I love super easy dinner ideas and this Chicken and Basil Fettuccine is just that. As per the recipe you can use shredded BBQ chicken to make the recipe very quick, or to save a few dollars grill some chicken breast. Simply slice the breast in half length ways to cook through faster, and then slice up once cooked.

Well Kat the Chicken basil fettuccine was an instant success to my 7 and 9 year old boys. I think it will be a regular in my arsenal. I might try it with zymil cream next time
