Grilled Chicken Penne al Fresco

I recently splurged and bought myself a new kitchen gadget.  The Pampered Chef Deep Covered Baker.  I'm still experimenting with recipes to make in it and figuring out the conversion from oven to microwave so I've only tried 2 recipes so far.  The first one was a complete miss.  It was AWFUL!!!  This one, on the other hand, was FANTASTIC!!!! 

First there's the cherry tomatoes cooked with garlic to bursting, then smashed and cooked with chicken broth and noodles and seasonings.  Stir in the Grilled chicken, sliced with fresh basil and Parmesan cheese and you've got yourself a delicious dinner without heating up your house AND fast!  Seriously, anything is better with fresh basil from your garden and Parmesan cheese!  I was amazed at how well everything turned out cooking it all in the microwave...especially the noodles!!!!  Absolutely INCREDIBLE!!!

You don't have to have a baker like mine to make this delicious recipe.  Everything could easily be converted to stovetop directions, but for me...I'll continue with the microwave method.  Because I can.


  1. YUM!!! That looks great, and I am pretty sure I have most of those ingredients!!!!

  2. That looks and sounds really good!
