No need to boil or drain the pasta in this dish. Just add cream of chicken soup and chicken broth to sautéed chicken, onion and garlic, stir in uncooked pasta and simmer away. The pasta is extra delicious from absorbing all of the fabulous flavors. Finish with Parmesan, pepper and a touch of fresh basil.
Season the chicken. Heat the oil in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the chicken and cook for 5 minutes. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes or until tender-crisp, adding the garlic for the last 1 minute of the cooking time, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the soup and broth. Stir in the penne and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium. Cook for 15 minutes or until the penne is tender and the chicken is cooked through, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with the cheese, black pepper and basil.
