It’s #TripleSBites Day 4!!

Today is a family friendly, deliciously “saucy” one pot meal!  Because let’s be honest, who wants to be doing a ton of dishes on Valentines Day?

The dish starts off with some Acala Farms Cottonseed Oil and continues on with one of my favorite flavor combinations: tomatoes and basil! 

Since basil is out of season, I love the Gourmet Garden Basil Paste to give that nice fresh herb kick! 

Then it’s finished off with a lovely parmesan garnish care of my new favorite grater from Kitchen IQ.  You guys – it is so easy to use!  I use my grater All. The. Time!

Dude and Spud love recipes like this, since there’s chicken and pasta (both very popular in this house).  And I love it, because the tomatoes cook down into the sauce, so they can’t pick them out!

One Pot Tomato Basil Chicken & Pasta

1 tbsp Acala Farms Cottonseed Oil
1 lb boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 small onion, diced
Salt & pepper
1 tsp Gourmet Garden Chunky Garlic Paste 
4 cups tomatoes, diced small (or 2 cans diced tomatoes, with juice)
2 ½ cups chicken stock 
2 tbsp Gourmet Garden Basil Paste 
12 oz whole wheat rotini (uncooked)
4 oz cream cheese
2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
Finely shredded parmesan (for garnish)

Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 4 minutes.  Flip and cook for an additional 4 minutes.  Remove from the pan and cut into 1-inch pieces.

Add the onion to the same pan and cook until tender.

Stir in the tomatoes, garlic paste, basil paste, chicken stock, pasta, salt and pepper, and diced chicken.  Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to a simmer.  Simmer for 9-11 minutes or until the pasta is tender and chicken is cooked through.

Stir in the cream cheese and grated parmesan and cook until heated through.

Use a fine grater (such as this one from Kitchen IQ) to grate additional parmesan as garnish.
