Spicy Romano Chicken

This is a take-off from Johnny Carino's Spicy Romano chicken. I made a few changes.

2 tablespoons butter
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (cooked, thinly sliced)
1/2 cup sliced mushrooms (can also use canned mushrooms)
1/4 cup diced green onions
1/8 cup sliced sun-dried tomatoes
Sun Dried Tomato Alfredo Sauce (I have only found the Classico brand)
1/4 cup grated romano cheese (I use the kind in a small tub, can be mixture of cheeses as well)
1 (12 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
cayenne pepper
bow tie pasta, cooked

In skillet melt butter and saute chicken, mushrooms, green onions, artichoke hearts, and sundried tomatoes until hot. Add Alfredo sauce and Romano cheese. Simmer. Add cayenne pepper to taste. Serve over bowtie pasta.
These pictures aren't the greatest. I was in too much of a hurry to make the presentation pretty ;-). I just wanted to show roughly what it looks like, in case you've never had it. You can also stir in the pasta with the sauce and chicken mixture, but I like to serve it over the pasta so each person can take how much of each they like.

This is definately going on next week's menu! What a great idea to include pictures, it looks and sounds delish!

Jamie - the bonus is that I served it with sliced sourdough garlic bread, and I plan to use the leftover bread to try out some paninis! The kids even ate this tonight, which is a first, but they liked it. Let me know how it turns out!

that looks really, really good! I'm so impressed with the've upped the anty :-).

jamie...I love that you used the word 'delish'. Bret is certain my sister made that up and only uses it--so he will be impressed that you use it as well :-).

Yes, the anty is definately up! I've tried taking pictures of food, but my camera is just not good with the details and it ends up looking less appetizing...and "delish", it just naturally rolls of the tongue :) That is funny!

I agree that delish just works. I use it to and Bret thinks it's a cute word. My family is always making words up and so he had added that to the list of words we make up...I'm just glad for proof that it's not just one of our words.
