Chicken and Linguine with Garlic Sauce

(2 Votes)
20 Min

Here's a whole meal that'll have 'em coming back for more... and more... and more. You get the idea! Don't be fooled by the nine cloves of garlic. After they're cooked, they turn out to be full-flavored, smooth, and mild. You'll be the whiz of the table!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound linguine
  • 3/4 cup olive oil
  • 9 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 whole cooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts, coarsely chopped
  • 3/4 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
What To Do:
  1. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the linguine to desired doneness; drain and place in a large serving bowl.

  2. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat; add the garlic and sauté for 5 minutes. Cool slightly to prevent splattering, and then stir in the red pepper and salt.

  3. Gradually stir in the chicken, chicken broth, and thyme.

  4. Reduce the heat and simmer until heated through. Toss with the linguine and serve.

cup of olive oil? Isn't that a little much?

well it does say 3/4c oil not 1 cup, which I was reading also and thought it may be to much, but what the heck, I will try, and you can also just add more chicken and vegie's to it if you want. I like to experiment. I know it could be costly with chicken, but maybe add some other kind of meat or more pasta to it if you think is to much oil. Oh What the heck, I do like Mr food's recipe and had no bad one's. So try it, you may like it, I will. Ok have a great day all of Mr. Foods critic's. Debbie

This recipe is awesome. Great way to use leftover chicken. And it's quick! Great with small salad and bread sticks. MMMMMMMMMMMMMMM so GOOD
