Chicken and Kale Pasta in an Herb Cream Sauce
Pasta… One of the most satisfying dishes ever! It is hearty, fulfilling and so versatile. With this delicious combination of ingredients I have chosen I know you will adore this dish as much as we did.
2 Large Organic Chicken Breasts, cut into cubes
2 Large stems of Organic Kale, rinsed well and chopped
1/2 packet of your favorite Pasta (I chose Organic Spaghetti because I love to twirl it on my fork.)
1/2 C Organic Cream
2 T Olive Oil
Bunch of Oregano and Chives
Some Parsley and chive stems for garnish
Sea Salt and Pepper
Bring a large amount of salted water to a boil and cook pasta to al dente. (Reserve some of the pasta water.)
In a medium to large pan heat your olive oil and cook your kale till it is soft and wilted. Then remove the kale and set aside.
Salt and pepper both sides of the cubed chicken then place your chicken to the pan you used to cook the kale, you may need to add a bit more olive oil if there in none left over from the kale.
Allow the chicken to brown on both sides, about 3-4 minutes per side.
Then add the cream and herbs to the chicken and simmer the mixture for about 8 minutes.
Taste test to see if you need to add more salt and/or pepper.
When you are ready to serve add a little of the reserved pasta water to the cream mixture to thin it out a bit. Then add your kale and mix it together.
For plating, place some pasta on your plate then spoon the chicken mixture on top and garnish with parsley and chive stems.
