Garlic Chicken Pasta

Serves: 3-4

1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast; cut into strips
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 T. butter, divided
1/3 c. oil
1 t. Italian seasoning
1 box (12 oz.) bow tie pasta
Parmesan cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile in a skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of butter. Add garlic and chicken; cook 5-7 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove chicken from skillet. Add oil, butter and Italian seasoning to skillet. Heat on medium for 2-3 minutes. Once pasta is cooked, drain. Toss pasta, chicken and garlic sauce together; stir until coated. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.

Tips: I made up this great garlicky dish tonight while looking for a way to add chicken to our meal. I will admit that it is probably not the healthiest meal ever with the butter and oil but if you enjoy garlic, the flavor really comes through. I used canola oil because that is what I had but it would probably be even better if you used olive oil. Watch the garlic carefully to make sure it doesn't start to brown. If this does happen just remove it from the heat right away. It will still taste fine, just a little different. I also shared this recipe at Life as MOM's Ultimate Recipe Swap.
