Vodka!! Ok, I've got your attention.
1 tbsp butter
1 tbsp olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
3 tbsps onion, chopped
2 cups cooked, chopped chicken
3 tbsps tomato paste
3 oz vodka
3/4 - 1 cup 10% cream
salt and pepper to taste (lots of pepper!)
1/2 lb penne
454 g canned artichokes (not marinated), reserve liquid
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella
In a deep skillet lightly brown the garlic and onion in butter and olive oil. Toss in the cooked chicken. Add the tomato paste and heat through. Chop a couple of artichokes and mix together.
Deglaze the pan with vodka and add the cream. Salt and pepper to taste. As I said before, lots of pepper! I like a lot of pepper in romanoff.
Meanwhile cook the penne as per package directions, drain and toss with the chicken and sauce. If you want the sauce a little thinner mix in 1 -2 tbsps of reserved liquid from the artichokes. Spoon into an oiled 8 X 8" baking dish. Cut the remaining artichokes in half and add to the dish.
Top with shredded cheese and bake at 350 F for 30 minutes.
I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too!
