Sarah: I'm back with a brand new recipe. It's Chicken Caprese Pasta. Chicken Caprese Pasta is one of those quick recipe with an elegant name that will impress everyone. It's makes a great weeknight meal. It's a hit at any party. It comes together really quickly. It's delicious, plus I add some seasonings that makes it go from being good to excellent. Every time I eat this pasta, I want it more. It's never enough no matter how much I made.
Why I love Chicken Caprese Pasta?
It comes together really quickly. The flavors compliment each other. The chicken is juicy and tender. That balsamic vinegar gives it the right kick. It's like summer in a bowl or plate, with only few ingredients it satisfies my whole family with all fresh ingredients.
How to cook the chicken, and can chicken be made before?
Imagine you get home from work or school. Your chicken is already to go so just you just need to throw the ingredient in the skillet and viola there you have it a flavorful, juicy, and delicious meal on the table. I personally like to prep my chicken ahead of time because I bake my chicken. Preheat the oven 350 degrees, once it has reached its heated temperature. Bake the chicken for 25 minutes, and that's it.
