I think you know how things turned out. Ready to dig into your own plate of chicken bruschetta pasta? Let’s make it!
Here’s how you make chicken bruschetta pasta!
You want some chicken, some corn and tomatoes and basil, and some nice balsamic vinegar dressing.
One way or the other, you are going to marinate your chicken in the dressing for a few hours, and then send someone responsible out to the grill to cook it up while you do the rest.
The topping is a happy mixture of all those veggies. You’ll cook the onion and corn ever so quickly in a little butter while the pasta is cooking, and make sure to scoop out a little pasta water before you drain it, because that’s going to help you make a nice light sauce out of the pan drippings and a little Parmesan cheese.
When the chicken is done, all that’s left to to is assemble the plates of chicken bruschetta pasta.
