Chicken Simmered in Tomato Sauce with Cheese and Penne

Chicken Simmered in Tomato Sauce with Cheese and Penne

You can easily make it with the ingredients on hand. The cheese and penne make the dish more delicious.

Ingredients: 2 servings

◆Chicken thigh
1
◆Salt and pepper
a small amount
◆Olive oil
1/2 tablespoon
◇Onions (finely chopped)
1/2
◇Garlic (finely chopped)
1 clove
◇Olive oil
1/2 tablespoon
Canned tomatoes
1/2 can (200 g)
White wine
2 tablespoons
Consomme stock granules
1 teaspoon
Salt, black pepper
as needed
Penne pasta
30-40 g
Processed cheese
40 g
Finely chopped parsley
a small amount

Steps

1. Remove the fat from the chicken. It's easier with kitchen scissors.
2. Cut into large bite-sized pieces, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
3. Heat the olive oil in a frying pan, and sauté the garlic and onion. When the onion becomes translucent, remove from the pan.
4. Add more olive oil into the same pan, and brown both sides of the chicken. Wipe off the excess oil with paper towels.
5. Add the onion, canned tomatoes, white wine, and consommé, cover with a lid, and simmer over medium heat. Adjust the flavour with salt and pepper. Since the cheese will be added later, don't put too much salt.
6. Simmer until the liquid has mostly evaporated. In the meat time, cook the penne pasta.
7. Add the cooked penne pasta, and mix. Spread the cheese all over, cover with the lid, and cook over low heat until it's melted, then you're done. Serve on a plate, and sprinkle with parsley on top.
