Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to the boil.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter and oil in a large saute pan over medium high heat. Season then brown chicken until light golden and just cooked through about 5 minutes; transfer to a plate.
  3. Add shallots to pan and saute 1 minute. Add sundried tomatoes, red pepper and ground almonds. Deglaze pan with wine until just evaporated. Add cream and almond milk, bring to a boil, stir until sauce thickens about 4 minutes. Add basil. Return chicken to the pan and simmer until just heated through.
  4. Cook pasta al dente. Drain, reserve about 1 cup pasta water. Add pasta into sauce and use pasta water if necessary for desired consistency.
  5. Garnish with toasted slivered almonds. Serve immediately.

Footnotes

  • NOTE: Oven roasted tomatoes can be a substitute for sundried tomatoes, or an addition to this pasta or your favorite pasta, pizza, risotto or salad. Slice plum, roma or campari tomatoes lengthwise, place on cookie sheet , drizzle with olive oil, salt and pepper and roast at 450 degrees F for 20 minutes. Towards the end, drizzle with balsamic vinegar if serving on top of greens.

Made as directed. It was alright, but definitely didn't have as much flavor as I expected. Probably won't make again/
