Creamy Tomato Chicken Penne

I always enjoy the tomato based pasta sauces & my kids love the creamy sauces. So, our taste buds met in-between and we had the yummiest Creamy Chicken Tomato resting on a bed of hot steaming penne'. Very satisfying meal... That's for sure :-)


  • 1/2 packet of penne' (or any pasta of your choice) cooked according to instruction on packet
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 3 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 10 small chicken pieces
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 can button mushroom, halved
  • 4 tbsp tomato puree
  • 1/2 cup canned chopped stewed tomatoes
  • 1/2 a cup of water
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 1/2 tsp Italian seasoning


  1. Cook the pasta according to the instruction on the packet.
  2. Heat oil & butter in a pan. Saute' onions & garlic.
  3. Put in the chicken pieces. Sear quickly to brown the outer skin of the chicken.
  4. Add the mushroom. Saute' as well.
  5. Pour in the stewed tomatoes & tomato puree. Reduce the heat cook till chicken is cooked through. Add 1/2 a cup of water if the liquid has evaporated.
  6. Flavour with Italian seasoning,salt, pepper & sugar.
  7. Pour in the whipping cream. Reduce heat. Let it simmer gently.
  8. Drain the pasta & serve it on a few dinner plates. Dot little bits of butter on the pasta.
  9. Scoop up the chicken tomato creamy sauce in the center of the pasta & sprinkle with chopped parsley.
  10. Serve immediately. Garlic bread on the side would be good!
