Need some dinner ideas for next week? I have one of our favorites for you.
It’s too yummy – with the creamy sauce and the fresh tomatoes and basil – and anything over pasta is good in our book. :)
Ready to get started?
Serves 6 (ish)
- 1.5 lbs Chicken Tenders
- 3 cups Chicken Broth
- 4 T butter
- 4 T flour (*Updated – forgot to include!!)
- olive oil
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3 tomatoes
- 10-15 fresh basil leaves
- 1 lb. fettuccine noodles
- salt and pepper to taste
Heat 2 -4 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet or saute pan. Start your water boiling for the pasta. Make sure to add salt to the pasta water.
Salt and pepper the chicken tenders and saute them till just cooked. Remove them from the heat and keep them warm. (I just put them on a plate with foil over them.)
In the same skillet melt the butter. When butter is melted add the flour and mix with a whisk until flour is all incorporated into the butter and bubbly.
Don’t let your mixture get too brown. (Which can happen if you’re trying to cook and take pictures at the same time. We almost had to start over here. ;)
Whisk in the chicken broth and let simmer until slightly thickened.
Add your pasta to the water – it should be boiling by now. ;)
When this is thickened add in the cream and mix well. Let this cook for a few minutes until sauce is creamy. Add back in your chicken tenders.
Let your sauce simmer and thicken. Chop your tomatoes and basil while you’re waiting.
Once the sauce is the consistency you want and your pasta is just about done, add in your tomatoes and basil. Mix well. Taste and add salt and pepper if desired.
Drain your pasta and pour it into a serving dish.
Spoon your chicken and sauce over the pasta and serve. :)
I usually serve this with a simple spinach and bacon salad dressed with a Creamy Balsamic dressing.
I hope you enjoy this simple yummy recipe!
Whew. This week kicked my butt. But I’m excited to say that things are going well for Anthro Necklace Week starting on Monday.

But don’t scroll all the way down just yet – because I don’t want you to miss out on this week’s Crush of the Week!!
This week I’m so thrilled to introduce you to the fabulous Roo from Nice Girl Notes!
Roo has a pretty new blog, but boy – she has a gem on her hands. I have never come across a new blog and ended up reading Every. Single. Post because I was so entertained by the writing and fun going on. Well that was the case when I discovered Nice Girl Notes. I was even reading portions of her posts out to hubby.
Roo is talented in many ways -
She can craft . . .
These darling fall decorations are so cute and they are PB knockoffs! Check out the tutorials for the Mercury Pumpkins and the Double Wall Hurricane.
She has also made a foot friendly version of Alphabet Letter Magnets -
But my all time favorite things about Nice Girl Notes are the writing and the “Pictures”.
Roo is stinkin’ hilarious.
From her post on How to Dance in Social Settings
to her reason for being a follower – I guarantee you will enjoy each and every post and picture.
Ok – have I gushed enough? Are you going to go over and check out Nice Girl Notes?
I can gush some more if I need to.
No – I trust you – just go check it out for yourselves. Tell her Bev says “hi” :).
And as promised – here is your sneak peak to next week’s tutorials . . .
This isn’t all of them of course – but there have to be some surprises next week!
