Recipe: Chicken with Creamy Penne Pasta

Chicken with Creant Penne Pasta
**Recipe is for already cooked roasted chicken. My suggestion is pick up the already seasoned prepared chicken at your local grocery.

Serves 6
•2 1/2 cups penne pasta, cooked as directed
•4 tablespoons low-fat buttery spread
•1 garlic clove, crushed
•1/3 cup onion, sliced
•4 tablespoons flour
•1 (15 oz.) can or 2 cups chicken broth
•1/2 cup sour cream, yogurt, or milk
•1/4 teaspoon salt
•1/8 teaspoon pepper
•2 roasted chicken breasts, cut into bite size pieces
•red pepper flakes, optional
•grape tomatoes, sliced, optional

While the penne is cooking, melt butter or margarine in a medium sauce pan. Cook garlic and onions, over medium heat, until onions have softened. Add flour and cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly.

Stir in broth, stirring frequently until sauce comes to simmer. Remove from heat. Stir in sour cream until it has melted. Season with salt and pepper.

My version is very basic compared to the recipe above.
Purchase the roasted prepared chicken.
