Quick, easy and nutritious weeknight dinner

Creamy Tomato Pasta for Two

(with a portion of left overs!)

1 Chicken breast, slice breast in half then cut into half centimeter slices
1 half small/medium onion, cut onion in half then slices into thin pieces
1 broccoli crown, cut into small florets and stem into small cubes
sun/oven dried tomatoes packed in oil
Half small tub sour cream
Balsamic vinegar
Mozzarella balls (optional but tasty)
Wholewheat pasta, cooked according to directions

Stir-fry sliced chicken and onion in oil from tomatoes until chicken is sealed and onion translucent.
Add broccoli and a small amount of water. Place lid on pan and steam for one minute.
Add tomatoes to pan and stir around for a minute.
Add a couple tablespoons of pesto and balsamic vinegar and mix. Cook for a minute or so.
Add in sour cream and stir until melted. Turn heat off but leave pan over stove (only works if you dont have a gas stove).
Add in mozzy balls and cooked pasta and mix it all together.

Dinner in under 30 minutes from start to finish, I guarantee!
