After searching for a chicken recipe I decided to share this one with you from Cafe Delites. It uses pasta made from a Active Spiralizer Spiral Slicer, which is a fancy name for a really versatile pasta maker that only costs around $10 to buy. After taking a look I also found that it was recommended by Dr Oz.
So this little gadget makes it so easy to make the pasta like spirals for this chicken dish. If you cant find one of these pasta makers then you can substitute with a vegetable peeler. But you will find the Active Spiralizer Spiral Slicer so much more easier to use.
This Sun Dried Tomato Parmesan Chicken Recipe as the name suggests requires sun dried tomatoes along with Parmesan cheese and of course the main ingredient – chicken. What would a chicken dish be like without the chicken. I dread to think. So don’t forget to thaw out some chicken thigh fillets or make sure you have some fresh on hand. This dish also requires that little magic herb, garlic. I love garlic and like to use it in most of my dishes, not just for its flavor but also for its medicinal properties.
