Farfalle with Chicken and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Chris and I try to look for new recipes all the time. Since moving farther away from work, we don’t always have a ton of time in the evenings, so we usually look for fast recipes for weeknight meals. I try to give them a test run on a weekend before we attempt out during the week too. We tried this one out a few weeks ago, and a long as you’re prepared, it goes pretty fast. I had a few requests for the recipe after putting a photo up on Instagram, so here it is!

    This sounds delish!! Not sure it is something my husband would it… BUT it seems like it would be right up my mom’s alley!! I might have to volunteer to cook the next time we go visit… she and I can have this and we’ll figure something else out for my dad/husband!

      Well, my husband liked it, and he usually doesn’t like mushrooms, so there’s hope! You could always make it for girls’ night!
