Chicken Penne with Garlic & Basil

Hey everyone!

This dish was my experimental dish and I must say it came out perfect!

Dairy-Free Cream Sauce

This Chicken Penne with Garlic & is dairy-free and will work for anyone that is lactose intolerant.

I have a son who is allergic to all dairy products so I have to get creative and be careful not to serve him anything with dairy in it.

He is 3 and absolutely love this meal I hope you and your free spins no deposit bonus uk.

Flavorful Chicken

The chicken in this dish is very well seasoned. The poultry seasoning, fresh basil and salt really adds a nice touch when mixed with the

homemade cream sauce and pasta.

Thick Sauce

You’ll need to be careful to continuously stir your cream sauce while cooking until smooth to avoid lumps and remember if ever it gets too thick

simply add a little water to it and continue to stir until smooth and of the consistency and thickness you desire.

Easy P easy 

This dish is easy to make and doesn’t take a long time. Have fun with it and once you get the technique down you can be as creative as you like.

Make it spicy, make is more savory, make it your very own.
