Chicken Sorrento

Balsamic vinegar is the secret ingredient that adds a savory sweet note to our perfectly seasoned pasta sauce.  Fresh basil and Parmesan add the perfect finish.  If you’re looking for a pasta alternative, serve the chicken over creamy polenta or mashed potatoes instead of pasta.

How to Make It

Step 1

Season the chicken.  Heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat (Make sure the skillet and oil are hot before adding the chicken- it will jump-start browning and prevent the chicken from sticking).  Add the chicken and cook for at least 3 minutes before turning (if it doesn't turn easily give it another minute on that side) then cook until both sides are well browned.  Remove the chicken from the skillet.

Step 2

Stir the sauce and vinegar in the skillet and cook for 2 minutes, stirring often.  Stir in the basil.  Return the chicken to the skillet.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cover and cook for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

Step 3

Slice the chicken.  Serve the chicken and sauce over the penne.  Sprinkle with the cheese.

    Easy recipe.

    I used bow-tie pasta instead and a traditional pasta sauce came out great. Will make this again.
