Sometimes I just want something quick, easy, and light. I love to cook meals that take a little more work, thought, preparation and time, but I also am a mom, wife, blogger, friend, etc and I just feel worn out. I need a meal that can come together with little thought, but still be fantastic. This is definitely one of those meals. I realize that you do need to make a little trip to Costco, but if you don’t have a membership just run to your local grocery store and find a similar dressing. Really you could do a Sun-dried tomato, or Italian. There’s just something especially delicious about the Culinary Treasures, White Balsamic Citrus Basil Dressing.

One of my favorite things about this pasta is that you could eat it warm or cold, vegetarian or with meat, switch up the veggies etc and it will still be delicious. I love a recipe that you can easily make your own.
I do highly recommend trying it with sun-dried tomatoes. They add a sweet pop of flavor that is absolutely delicious with this dressing.
White Balsamic and Basil Chicken Pasta
Recipe by me
1 Large Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast
Culinary Treasures White Balsamic Citrus Basil Dressing (or any favorite vinaigrette)
1/2 Box Bow Tie Pasta
1/2 Cup Oil Packed Sun-dried Tomatoes
1 Small Bunch of broccoli, steamed
Parmesan Cheese, Shredded
In a ziploc bag add the chicken and enough dressing to coat the chicken. Allow to marinate at least two hours or up to 1 day.
Remove the chicken from the bag, and discard any remaining marinade. Grill on a grill pan for 5-7 minutes per side or until cooked through.
Meanwhile, place the pasta in a pot of salted, boiling water and cook until al dente. Drain the pasta, but keep it in the pot.
Thinly slice the chicken and add it, the broccoli, and sun-dried tomatoes into the pot with the pasta. Toss with a little of the white balsamic citrus basil dressing until evenly coated. Top with a little Parmesan cheese to taste.
