Chicken Bruschetta Pasta – A Favorite in This House

chixbruspasta

A few months ago, I was lucky enough to attend a Pampered Chef demonstration at a friend’s house. I remember my mom having these demonstrations when I was little, but I had not heard about or been to one since getting my own kitchen (a.k.a. moving out). Super excited, off I went. One thing led to another and about 2 weeks later, I was having a demo at my house. :-)

At the demonstrations now, they make a meal or dessert using a bunch of the kitchen tools that you can buy. As the hostess, I chose for the demonstrator to make Chicken Bruschetta Pasta. Come on, it sounds delicious doesn’t it? I was not prepared for just how delicious this dish would or how much my family would enjoy it. The kids got to eat the leftovers from that party and now ask for it to be placed on our menu pretty much every single week. In fact, this week it was G’s choice for his meal.

With the permission of Pampered Chef, I am SO excited to be able to share with you the recipe for this delightful and fresh meal, Chicken Bruschetta Pasta! I have altered it a bit after perfecting it for my family, but it is essentially the same. :-)

I will say, many of the steps include using a Pampered Chef tool, so I will do my best to make adaptations for you along the way…

Chicken Bruschetta Pasta

Ingredients:

1 box spaghetti

2 15-oz cans of chicken broth

2-3 chicken breasts (just over 1 pound)

Italian seasoning mix of spices (I use the Pampered Chef variety, but any blend will do)

2 medium size tomatoes

1 1/2 cups fresh basil

4 cloves garlic, chopped

1/2 cup olive oil + some to saute the chicken in

Fresh grated Parmasean Cheese

Directions:

1. Saute chicken in olive oil and Italian seasoning blend. I find that it is easiest to do this in a covered pan.

2. Cut or chop chicken into tiny pieces. * I use the Pampered Chef Salad Choppers (much like kitchen shears, but with a double blade). They are one of my very favorite kitchen tools.

3. Cook the pasta. I use my covered stoneware and cook my pasta in the microwave for this dish. Yes, the microwave. So, if you have a microwave safe covered stoneware, try it (I put in the pasta and chicken broth and cook for 9 minutes, then stir, then 9 minutes again and it is perfect…no draining necessary)! If not, you can cook your pasta like regular, but cook it in the chicken broth. That is the key!

4. Make your bruschetta. This is where the fresh comes in. Cut tomatoes into wedges and coarsely chop your garlic. Put these in a food processor with the basil and garlic on the bottom, the tomato on top, and 1/2 cup EVOO on top of that. *I use a manual food processor because it does not over-process. So if you use an electric, just use pulse and be careful not to over-process.

5. Mix bruschetta and chicken together, then toss with cooked pasta. Top with fresh grated Parmasean cheese and get ready to enjoy this deliciousness!

This meal tastes delicious paired with a nice loaf of bread and some dipping oils!

    • I am sure it would be delicious with that! I didn’t have a covered stoneware until a few months ago. Now I use it for EVERYTHING…roasts, soups, you name it:) Maybe a future wish list item?;)

  5. This looks great! Pinning! Btw, wanted to mentioned that if I am putting chicken in a pasta dish I will often put it in the crock pot so that I can shred it into really easy pieces. It’s tender and so much easier than cutting up whole chicken breasts.

    In step 4, it say top with 1/2 cup EVOO, I may have missed something and just wanted to ask about what that is?

    • Hi Michelle, I am so sorry! EVOO stands for Extra Virgin Olive Oil. I should have put the whole term. Hope you love the Chicken Bruschetta Pasta just as much as we do:)

  10. I am a pampered chef consultant and this is one of my go to recipes! Everyone LOVES it! And its definitely a favorite in our home too! I’ve had the RockCrok (another pampered chef product…and this recipe works in it as well) but I just got my Deep Covered Baker (pampered chef product) and I absolutely love the versatility of our products! They make life in the kitchen FUN and so easy! :-) Thanks for posting this yummy recipe for others to enjoy!!! :-)
