Chicken and Penne with “Vodka” Sauce

Another wonderful recipe from my mother-in-law.  My kids seriously COULD NOT get enough of this.

  • 1 lb chicken breast
  • olive oil
  • crushed garlic
  • 2 TBSP butter
  • 1/3 cup white grape juice concentrate
  • 2 cans (14 oz) diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 1 container (8 oz) Parmesan cheese
  • 1 box gluten free penne (Schar or Bionaturae, etc.)

Bring pot of water to a boil and cook penne according to package directions.  Slice chicken breast into small pieces and saute in oil and garlic until cooked through.  Set aside.  In same skillet, melt butter and add grape juice concentrate.  Cook over medium heat for about 3 minutes to thicken.  Add tomatoes and Parmesan cheese.  Heat and stir constantly until thick and bubbly.  Mix sauce with chicken and pasta, and serve.

UPDATE: You can substitute vodka for the white grape juice concentrate if you prefer :-)
