Today’s Menu: Smoked Mozzarella Chicken with Pasta

 

 

Smoked Mozzarella Chicken Spaghetti 007
A gorgeous Spring Day out today. Sunny and 70 degrees! Had to go to Kroger to pick up a couple of items for tonight’s dinner and then back home. Got the cart out and went to the lake and did some fishing, How relaxing! Caught some sun and 4 small fish, 2 Blue Gill and 2 Bass. A nice peaceful day. For dinner tonight a new recipe; Smoked Mozzarella Chicken with Pasta. You’re going to love this dish!

 

 

 
Came across the recipe for tonight’s dinner in an issue of Simply Delicious/Taste of Home Magazine and it looked and sounded too good not to try, Smoked Mozzarella Chicken with Pasta. To prepare it I needed the following; 4 ounces thin spaghetti, 2 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (6 ounces each), sea salt and pepper (to taste), 1/3 cup Whole Grain bread crumbs, 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, 2 thin slices smoked deli ham, 2 slices smoked mozzarella cheese, 1/2 teaspoon dried sage leaves, 1/2 cup prepared pesto, and Grated Parmesan cheese. I only used half amounts of the original recipe, I only prepared 2 Chicken Breasts. I also made my own Bread Crumbs by putting 2 slices in the food processor. For my Pasta I used Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Thin Spaghetti. I also used Perdue Chicken Breasts. I like using these, they store in the freezer and are individually wrapped.

 

 

 
To prepare it I cooked pasta according to package directions. When done drained and transferred to a large bowl. Got my Chicken Breasts and sprinkled with salt and pepper. Placed the bread crumbs in a shallow bowl. Dipped Chicken in bread crumbs to coat both sides; shaking off excess. Then in a large skillet, heated oil over medium-high heat. Added Chicken; cooked 5 minutes. Turned and cooked 2 minutes longer. Topped with Ham and Mozzarella Cheese; sprinkled with Sage. Cook 1-2 minutes longer or until the thermometer inserted in chicken reads 165°. Removed from heat. Added pesto to Pasta and tossed to coat. Served the Chicken with the Pasta and sprinkled with Parmesan Cheese. Another one of those keeper recipes! You can’t go wrong with Chicken and Pasta, the added Ham and Smoked Mozzarella worked great. The original recipe along with the web link is at the bottom of the post. For dessert later a Healthy Choice Dark Fudge Swirl Frozen Yogurt.
