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 that can be made when it takes to cook pasta, with just three extra minutes needed!

I love super easy dinner ideas and this Chicken and Basil Fettuccine are 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 lengthways to cook through faster, and then slice up once cooked.
