Chicken Riggies II

Chicken Riggies II


"This Riggie recipe simmers chicken breast in tomato sauce, cream, sherry, shallots, garlic and sweet peppers, and serves it all over hot, cooked rigatoni pasta - of course. Thus the name, Chicken Riggies! This recipe makes them beg for more; my husband hounds me to make this for him!"

The sherry added a delightfully subtle flavor to the sauce. We really enjoyed this pasta dish, Deanna.

I loves this recipe! It came out soooo good. I did a few changes - used roasted red pepper flavored olive oil, used twice as much garlic, used twice as many red peppers, and instead of regular...
