Today I have yet again, another delicious chicken recipe for you.  Creamy Sundried Tomato Chicken Pasta is one of our favorite pasta dishes, which just so happens to team up best with Chicken in this recipe combination.

It is topped with a gooey Mozzarella, with creamy Cottage Cheese spread just under that.  Dig in deeper … oh yes, more creaminess with the Pasta, Chicken and Mushrooms smothered in a Sundried Tomato, Black Pepper Sauce.

I could eat this dish two, three times a week, and never get tired of it.

My family is the same, they just love this creamy Chicken dish !  And I think the double layer of two kinds of cheeses helps a lot too 😉

After cooking the Chicken, you can cut the Fillets into cubes or into strips.

I sort of like to alternate between cubes and strips, depending on the type of pasta used.

For me, cubed Chicken goes better with longer types of pasta whereas strips are better with shell kind of pastas.

Totally up to you which to use and whether the Chicken is cubed or cut into strips, makes no difference to the taste.

Leftovers from this creamy Sundried Tomato Chicken pasta are delicious for lunch the following day.

And it does not matter whether you heat it up again, or enjoy the Chicken cold.  I suppose during Summer we all crave cooler lunches, but in Winter, we want it to be warm and comforting.
