Proper Tasty: Creamy Chicken and Pasta

My last tasty recipe was a borderline bust and made me leary of trying any other tasty recipes. But, this one looked simple enough and I had 90% of the ingredients on hand, so why not!

 

Creamy Chicken Pasta by Tasty Proper

Let me start off by saying that this recipe was really easy and the only thing I had to buy was the “double” cream. Fun fact, double cream is the British way of saying heavy whipping cream. I found the exact size I needed at my local target. There are no given serving sizes, but I got exactly four servings out of this.

The Good: All of the flavor is there. The lemon shines right through and makes this taste so refreshing! The chili flakes add that little after taste punch that keeps the flavors tingling in your mouth, but doesn’t provide an overwhelming amount of heat.

The Bad: I think this might have been better with chicken thighs, but I admit that I overcooked the breast so it was borderline dry. The amount of thyme called for is about twice as much as it should be. I cut the amount in half and it was perfect! Thyme is not something you want to go overboard with. Finally, I’d add more spinach next time in order to make it heartier.Creamy Chicken Pasta by Tasty Proper

I used freshly grated Parmesan instead of the kind in the jar, and I’m glad that I did. I think it made the dish a little thicker. Also, it’s so pretty to top your dish off with!

Overall, if you are looking for a 4 serving meal, this is your meal!  What Tasty recipes are your favorite?
