The process could not be any easier and the whole dish, including boiling your pasta, gets done in less than 20 minutes. I’m using chicken broth for the sauce, but you can certainly use white wine, such as a pinot blanc or sauvignon blanc. The Spanish onions also add a nice sweetness to the dish.

Ingredients and substitutes

  • Chicken – The chicken breast works perfectly for this recipe because we soak it in the white sauce, which helps keep it moist and juicy.
  • Parmesan – Adds a nice nutty flavor to the sauce.
  • Garlic – A little goes a long way. I have used small minced garlic, which is about a teaspoon. If you like garlic, use 1 tbsp of roasted garlic when possible.
  • Flour – Since we are using milk instead of all cream, we just need a little flour to help thicken the sauce.
  • Lemon juice – Helps cut in the richness of the sauce. I have used very little, but you can certainly use more if you want to make lemon flavor.
