Tasty Tuesday - Lemon Chicken and Tomato Pasta

Lemon Chicken and Tomato Pasta


  • 8 oz pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound chicken breasts
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 (8 oz) can diced tomatoes (undrained)
  • 8 oz tomato paste
  • lemon juice from half a lemon
  • 1/2 cup cream cheese
  • fresh or dry basil (I used dry)
  • black pepper


  1. Cook pasta. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet. Add chicken and garlic and cook until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from skillet and keep warm.
  2. Stir together tomatoes, tomato paste and lemon juice in the same skillet. Bring to boil and add the cream cheese. Stir until the cheese is completely melted and simmer for 2-3 minutes.
  3. Drain pasta and add it to the sauce in skillet and stir to coat. Stir in the chicken and the basil.
