Creamy Chicken Linguine Recipe

This Creamy Chicken Linguine is irresistible! Chicken and linguine pair with a light creamy sauce to make a week night dinner easy but special.

It’s no secret that I love pasta. It’s on my menu once a week.

My son adores pasta with Alfredo sauce. While that’s a great dish, I like to change things up a bit and make this Creamy Chicken linguine.

I am known by my family not to serve the same exact dish for weeks. Variety always makes dinner better.

This dish is a bit lighter than your typical Alfredo pasta. The chicken adds some extra protein and the sauce is not as rich.

I like to serve a side of veggies or arugula salad with it to complete the meal.

When I’m feeling healthy, I will use whole wheat pasta, but any type of linguine will work.

Actually, spaghetti is perfect for this recipe too. It’s a perfect week night meal especially if you have teenagers in the house.

My son is a growing boy and this is one hearty meal that keeps everyone satisfied.

I like to use boneless skinless chicken thighs in this recipe. I find thighs to be more flavorful than white meat and I always keep several packages in my freezer.

When chicken thighs are on sale, I like to stock my freezer. My family loves them roasted but they are great with pasta too.

This dish has a simple dried Italian seasoning in it. I always keep a few jars in my pantry because you can’t go wrong with it if you are making a pasta dish.

A sprinkling of fresh parsley or basil makes the dinner extra fresh. I like to keep a basil plant on my counter but I can’t always rely on that if it’s not late spring or summer. So, I go with whatever herb looks fresh in the grocery store.

If your family loves Fettuccine Alfredo, I invite you to change things up a bit and make this Creamy Chicken Linguine instead. You won’t be disappointed.

Helpful Tips to make Tuscan Garlic Chicken and Linguine:

  • Covering your pot while bringing it to a boil will cut your cooking time. Be sure not to leave it unattended, or you may have a boil-over to clean up.
  • If you are sensitive to alcohol, you can substitute the Chardonnay for chicken stock.

What you will need to make Tuscan Garlic Chicken and Linguine:

  • A large skillet with a lid – to help the pasta cook evenly, a wide skillet works best, ideally one that’s more than 12 inches in diameter.
  • Mesh Strainer – Normally you don’t need to drain the grease when cooking with lean ground beef, but if you do, a mesh strainer will help ensure you don’t lose any of the cooked meat.
  • Heat resistant spoon or spatula – Ideal for cooking, stirring, and serving.

Enjoy!

TUSCAN GARLIC CHICKEN AND LINGUINE

Tuscan Garlic Chicken and Linguine is a simple recipe ready in 20 minutes. Tender and juicy chicken with linguine pasta and fresh red peppers are tossed in a rich and creamy Chardonnay garlic-cream sauce to create this Tuscan-inspired dish. There is nothing quite like a restaurant-style dinner that comes together in a snap.

PREP TIME: COOK TIME: 20 MINSTOTAL TIME: 20 MINS

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for pasta water
  • 1 pound linguine pasta, uncooked
  • 3 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 red bell peppers, cored, seeded and cut into thin strips
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup Chardonnay
  • 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning Blend
  • 2 cups half-and-half
  • 1 cup freshly shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 5 ounces fresh spinach
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Bring a pot of water to a boil over high heat. Add a small handful of salt and the linguine and cook until it’s al dente (has a bite to it). Drain the pasta and reserve 2 cups of the pasta water.
  2. Meanwhile, warm a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Once you can feel the heat when you hold your hand 6 inches above the skillet, add the oil. Season both sides of the chicken with the salt and pepper. Add the chicken to the skillet. Cook the chicken until it’s a deep golden brown and completely cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes on each side. Remove the chicken and place it on a plate.
  3. Add the garlic, bell peppers and red pepper flakes to the skillet and cook until the peppers are crisp-tender, about 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the wine and seasoning blend to the skillet and scrape the browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Bring the wine to a boil for 2 minutes. Add the half-and-half and the Parmesan cheese. Stir until the cheese melts into the sauce, about 1 minute. Add the reserved pasta water, a ladleful at a time, to thin the sauce if necessary. Sprinkle in the spinach and add the pasta.
  4. Twirl the pasta and spinach into the sauce with tongs. Top with the cooked chicken. Sprinkle with the parsley.

DONNA’S NOTES

  1. Covering your pot while bringing it to a boil will cut your cooking time. Be sure not to leave it unattended, or you may have a boil-over to clean up.
  2. If you are sensitive to alcohol, you can substitute the Chardonnay for chicken stock.
