Slow Cooking Thursday ~ Linguine & Chicken or Italian Chicken


Hosted by Sandra at Diary of a Stay at Home Mom



LINGUINE & CHICKEN or ITALIAN CHICKEN
2 pounds chicken tenders, cut in half
1/3 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon each sea salt & white pepper
1 heaping teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1 teaspoon ground basil
olive oil
1 medium Vidalia onion, chopped
1 can diced tomatoes with herbs
2 teaspoons minced garlic, jar
1 1/3 cups boiling water
1 teaspoon Better than Bouillon chicken base
Fresh cooked linguine
Parmesan cheese
Garlic Bread
  • Mix together the flour, sea salt, white pepper, basil & Italian seasoning.
  • Coat each chicken tender well.
  • In a large skillet heat enough olive oil to coat bottom well.
  • Brown chicken pieces until golden on each side, but not cooked through. With a slotted spoon transfer to slow cooker.
  • Add onions to oil and saute until translucent. Add garlic and cook until fragrant.
  • Add tomatoes, boiling water and chicken base until well blended.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Pour over everything.
  • Cook 4 hours on low.
  • Serve over hot cooked linguine.
  • Top with fresh grated Parmesan cheese and a slice of garlic bread.
You can also skip the skillet portion, but need to increase the cooking time by 1 hour. I prefer the grilled edges to the chicken and onions.

This recipe can also be made without slow cooking: but I prefer slow cooking which I believe makes for much more tender chicken pieces.
  • Mix together the flour, sea salt, white pepper, basil & Italian seasoning.
  • Coat each chicken tender well.
  • In a large skillet heat enough olive oil to coat bottom well.
  • Add onions to oil and saute until translucent. Add garlic and cook until fragrant.
  • Brown chicken pieces until golden on each side and cooked through.
  • Whisk together water (reduced to 2/4 cup if not slow cooking) and chicken base until well blended. Add tomatoes. Pour into skillet.
  • Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 10 minutes.
  • Serve over hot cooked linguine.
  • Top with fresh grated Parmesan cheese and a slice of garlic bread.
While I call this Linguine and Chicken we much prefer to have it over Parmesan Potatoes and that's when we call it Italian chicken.

Thanks everyone. I hope you enjoy it. This is probably one of my very most favorite recipes and one of the most requested by hubby.

Mimi said...

I made this yesterday! I took it one step further. I didn't have much time, so I threw the chicken tenders in the crock pot frozen. I used chicken stock instead of the water & chicken base. Everyone loved it! Thanks for such a great recipe!

I'm really glad you liked it. I use fresh/frozen chicken stock myself, but most don't have it so I modified the recipe for the average. I'll have to try the tenders frozen.
