I am trying to include more chicken into our diet. Although I mostly make Indian dishes at home, once in a week, I experiment with new dishes. This was one such dish which came out really well. If you are a vegetarian, you can leave out chicken in this, it will still taste very good. It is a rich and creamy dish we absolutely loved.
1/2 lb tender tender chicken
1/2 lb small cut pasta
1 cup vegetables – onion, corn, carrot, red bellpepper
Dried basil, red chilli flakes flakes – according to taste
1 cup cheddar cheese
1/2 cup tomato
1/2 tea spn pepper
1 tbl spn whipping cream
Apply salt and pepper to chicken pieces and grill them till they are done.
Cook the pasta according to package instructions and keep it aside.
Heat olive oil/butter and add corn, carrot, onions, bellpepper. Add some salt, basil, chilli flakes. Cover and cook for few minutes till the vegetables are soft.
Preheat the oven at 350F.
Take an oven safe dish. Spread the vegetables. Then the chicken, followed by pasta. Spread the cream on it, followed by cheese. Spread tomato on top.
Bake in the oven for about 8-10mins till the cheese is melted.
