This quick and tasty Five Ingredient Chicken and Caramelized Onion Pasta Recipe is from one of my new “go-to” cookbooks, Five Ingredient Recipes.
I’m so excited to share this recipe and cookbook review with you all today! I’ve had the new Five Ingredient Recipes cookbook in my hot little hands for quite some time now, and had the opportunity to review some of the recipes before it was published. It’s a keeper, friends!
This cookbook is for all the busy people out there, like you and me, who still want to carve out time to put a good meal on the table for their family despite a jam packed schedule. It’s for those of us who want fresh, flavorful, from scratch recipes without a lot of convenience items thrown in. This cookbook is for those of us who love to cook, but maybe get weary of coming up with new ideas night after night. If any of this sounds like you, you must order the Five Ingredient Recipes cookbook by Phiilia Kelnhofer (aka the blogger behind the site Sweet Phi).
Here’s what I love about Phi’s Cookbook:
- Each of the 105 recipes features only 5 ingredients
- Each recipe has a gorgeous, color photo to go along with it!
- Each recipe is fresh and balanced… you won’t find a lot of “from the box” type ingredients in here. There are a few convenience items, but for the most part, we’re talking good, fresh, food.
- Each recipe is accompanied by a quick to read red circle, containing the 5 ingredients. That makes grocery list making so simple!
- Phi’s stories about each recipe makes me smile…family, friends and meal time are all important to Phi and it shows with each recipe!
- If you want to make the recipes as is, that’s great, but each recipe also serves as a great base recipe for those who want to add their own flare to a dish!
Slim Shady would like me to add that the Five Ingredient Recipes cookbook is a very comfortable sleeping surface. Anytime this book is out, he’s right there on top of it. Goofy cat!
Make sure to pick up the Five Ingredient Recipes cookbook on Amazon today! It’s currently listed at less than $10, which is a steal considering how much time and effort it will save you come dinner time! Also, I hope you’ll enjoy this preview of the Chicken and Caramelized Onions Pasta recipe from this cookbook below.
- 1 large red onion, finely sliced
- 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
- 1 pound chicken breast, each breast cut into thirds, or chicken tenders
- Pinch each of salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 8 ounces fettuccine pasta
- 2 cups cooked sweet peas (this is my addition, not part of the original recipe)
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the red onion in 2 tablespoons of the olive oil, stirring occasionally, for 20 minutes, or until the onion is soft and caramelized.
- Add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil and the chicken and sprinkle with a pinch of salt and pepper. Cook for 15 minutes, or until the chicken is cooked through, and remove from the heat.
- Meanwhile cook the pasta according to the package instructions. Drain, reserving ½ cup of the cooking water, and return the pasta to the pot it was cooked in.
- Pour the reserved water back into the pot with the pasta, add the cooked peas and stir in the yogurt until the noodles are coated with the yogurt.
- Add the chicken mixture to the pasta. Stir and serve.
