Creamy Basil Chicken Pasta

I love my husband for so many reasons. But today I love him because he called me from work yesterday and said, "You be ready to go to the gym right when I come home." He knows that exercising is my favorite stress-reliever. Which is definitely needed after this week! And let's be honest, Happy Momma=Happy Home. 

Then when I got home from working out, I walk in the house to find this delicious meal. A new one to our home. And he's so cute to have the table all set and ready. Then he makes it out to be "no big deal." He says, "If I can make this, anyone can." 

I don't know about that. But I do know it was WONDERFUL. Thanks honey! Enjoy.

1 (12-oz) package bow-tie pasta
1 T. butter
1 lb. chicken, cut into thin strips
1/2 tsp. garlic salt
1 c. milk
4-oz. cream cheese, cubed
1 tsp. basil
1/2 c. Parmesan cheese, grated

Cook pasta according to package directions. In a large skillet over medium heat, melt butter. Sprinkle chicken with garlic salt; cook 2 minutes on each side or until no longer pink. Add milk and heat just to boiling; stir in cream cheese and basil. Reduce heat, stirring constantly until cream cheese is completely melted and chicken is thoroughly cooked. Remove from heat, stir in Parmesan cheese. Toss hot pasta and sauce; serve immediately.

Note: He didn't end up putting all the pasta in. Maybe just 3/4 of it. Also, the chicken was already cooked, but he still seasoned it with garlic salt.
Pin It!
