Directions

Slice up the sun-dried tomatoes and cube the chicken. Salt and pepper the chicken. Fill a medium pot with water and boil. Cut up the asparagus and parboil for a few minutes.

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat.  Add the chicken and cook for 10 minutes or until it’s well browned on both sides.  Remove the chicken from the skillet.

Heat the remaining oil in the skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, mushrooms, basil, salt and pepper. Cook and stir for 2 minutes.

Add the flour and make a roux. Cook for 2-3 minutes.

Add the chicken stock, return to a boil and simmer 2-3 minutes.

Reduce the heat to low. Cook the mixture for 5 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through.

Mix the chicken with the cooked pasta.  Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese.
