Recipe of the Week - Chicken Napoli

Arizona State elections today!  Did you vote?
Here's a recipe I would vote for!  

Chicken Napoli

This has to be one of my favorite recipes.  The aroma of the chicken breasts browning with the basil mixture is amazing. When making this my husband's remark is always, "Wow, something smells really good; what are you cooking?"  

2 large chicken breasts, quartered
1/2 tsp. dried basil
1/4 tsp. ground black pepper
3 tbs. butter
1 tsp. vegetable oil
2 cups water
1/4 c. tomato sauce
3 cups mostaccioli or macaroni
2 cups broccoli flowerets, cooked
2 tbs. flour
1 cup milk

Rub chicken breasts with 1/2 teaspoon salt mixed with basil and pepper.  Brown in 1 tablespoon butter and oil in 10" skillet over low heat, about 7-10 minutes on each side.  Mix water and tomato sauce in saucepan; bring to boil.  Pour over chicken.  Stir in mostaccioli; return to boil.  Cook, uncovered, 10 minutes.  Arrange broccoli around edge of skillet to form a border.  Heat about 2 minutes.  Melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter in 1-quart saucepan.  Stir in flour.  Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring constantly , until bubbly.  Add milk; stire until thickened.  Pour over chicken and mostaccioli in skillet.  Heat 1-2 minutes.  

Serves 4
Preparation Time:  40 minutes

Have a Yummy Day,
