Ingredients

Number of serving: 4
Noodles - some kind of pasta. any will do.

Chicken breast - either boneless breasts or boneless tenders.

Red onions - or not. Chopped up into thin slices.

An apple or a pear - get a nice big one.

Cheese - one fancy cheese like gouda, fresh mozzarella, smoked swiss, whatever.

Cheese - shredded parmesan for the top

Brown sugar

Butter

Olive oil

Basil - fresh if you've got it

Garlic - fresh if you've got it

White wine, or beer, or not if you don't have it. It won't ruin it to not have it.

Preparation

  • Other things that you can toss in there include mushrooms, tomatoes, broccoli, bacon, etc. Really, whatever you have.
  • Start by melting butter with olive oil in a skillet. Cook the chicken and cut into smallish pieces. Boil up the noodles.
  • Chop and add the onion and cook until onion is translucent. Add a bit more butter and add the chopped apple or pear.
  • Once coated in butter, sprinkle brown sugar in. Add some wine or beer. Or not. You can add wine and beer throughout if you want.
  • It'll deglaze the pan and add flavor. At this point you may want to sprinkle everything with salt and pepper, garlic and crushed red pepper.
  • Once everything is more or less tender, toss in your cooked pasta . Get that stuff coated. If you don't have enough sauce, add more wine/beer, butter, oil, brown sugar, whatever you want.
  • Give a coated noodle a taste and adjust your seasoning as necessary. When everything looks just about ready, add in some cubed cheese and some fresh basil leaves.
  • Turn off the heat and just stir these things in. This keeps the cheese from glopping all over, but gives each cube a nice melted texture.
