We're military and move a lot. Pretty sure at some point I am going to lose all my recipes. So, I'm trying to put my favorites on the web to lessen the impact that would have. If you are afraid of losing yours too, you are welcome to send me your favorites or try these and comment.

Garlic Pesto Chicken with Tomato Cream Penne

Oh. My. Goodness.  This was good!  Lots of flavor and even my husband really liked it.  Seriously one of my favorite Pinterest finds.  Left over chicken can be used to make another meal, with rice or something.  It's that good.

1/2  bottle of Lawrys Herb and Garlic Marinade
2  large spoonfuls of Pesto
2  boneless chicken breasts

Cut chicken into cubes and pour Lawrys marinade and pesto over chicken.  Marinate over night.

Sauce:     (next time I will double the sauce portions, we ate it up but it didn't seem to be very much)
1  box of your choice of pasta
2  tablespoons of olive oil
3  cloves of garlic
2  spoonfuls of pesto
1/2  cup of chicken broth
8  ounces of tomato sauce
1   cup of half and half

Boil water and start on the noodles.

Pour entire batch of chicken, marinade and all, into a skillet and cook chicken fully (the marinade will evaporate/cook down).

Heat olive oil, cook garlic.  Add pesto.  Simmer in chicken broth until half has cooked down.  Add tomato sauce.  Then add half and half.  Simmer for 5 minutes.  Toss pasta in.  Add flour if it needs to be thickened.  Place chicken on top.
