Chicken Tomato Sauce Recipe – Served with Your Favorite Pasta

IMG_3074

I guess, there is nothing simpler than cooking a fresh pasta sauce to serve as your main dish at dinner. If you like pasta sauces which combine meat and tomatoes you can enjoy your chicken tomato sauce tonight. I use chicken breasts to make this pasta sauce. There are two options when it comes to adding tomatoes to your sauce. The most of the year I use canned plum tomatoes, which taste great. I puree them but I don’t like to make a very smooth tomato puree for this purpose. I puree the tomatoes with a couple of shots only. As a result of that, the consistensy of the tomato puree is coarse, containing the larger pieces of tomatoes.

In the summer when there are fresh, juicy and bright red tomatoes available, I use a couple of them to make this sauce tasting differently. I peel and chop them roughly before I add them to the chicken. To peel the tomato skin easily, immerse the fresh tomatoes in the hot water for 30 seconds first. I cook the sauce for a couple of minutes more, then I remove the sauce pan  from the heat, to keep the tomatoes as fresh as possible.

The main ingredients I use following  my chicken tomato sauce recipe is chicken, plum tomatoes and a heavy cream. Adding the heavy cream at the end of cooking, helps to make the sauce smoother and tasting delicious. To use one clove of crushed garlic is enough, as we want just to enhance the flavour of the sauce slihtly. Also, adding the ingredients gradually, one by one, helps to improve the final taste of your sauce.

Serve your chicken tomato sauce on the nest of your favorite either dried or fresh pasta. I found it the best to serve tagliatelle with this sauce. Sprinkle the pasta with a freshly grated parmesan cheese over the top before serving. Finally drizzle with olive oil if you prefer.

I hope you’ll enjoy cooking your chicken tomato pasta sauce. I’d be more than happy if you  leave me your comments below. :)
