Tomato Basil Chicken Pasta

Tomato Basil Chicken Pasta



4 tomatoes
1 onion,
1 full garlic bulb
8 fresh basil leaves,
1 stick of thyme,
8 fresh oregano leaves
4 fresh mint leaves
1/2 cup of pistachios (optional/you can add more or less)
3/4 cup red cooking wine,
1/4 cup of olive oil
box of rotini or penne pasta
and 4 chicken breast


Start the pasta in a separate pot. Cut the Chicken in 1 inch cubes and place in the pan with light olive oil. Turn the stove on to a medium high and cook the chicken till it is all cooked. Cut the tomatoes, onion, in fourths and then take the outside skin off of the garlic, but keep it in a full clove. In a blender add the tomatoes, onions, garlic cloves,   4 basil leaves, 2 mint leaves, 4 oregano leaves, half of the thyme leaves, cooking wine and olive oil and blend it. When blended add it to the already cooked chicken. When the pasta is finished, drain the water and add the pasta to the pan. Chop the rest of the herbs and with the pistachios add them to the pasta. Cook for about 5 minutes and serve!

Notes: If you don’t have a big enough pot you can keep the pasta in the original pot and just serve the chicken tomato sauce on top.

Sprinkle Parmesan or Mozzarella on top!
