This week it's all about manifesting dreams in the Casa de Kitchen Witch. Pull up a chair, grab a cup of tea (or wine) and settle in as I make a magically delicious recipe for sheet pan chicken and pasta and share some hard won wisdom about the importance of having a vision, letting go, and letting God.

Ingredients

Boneless skinless chicken breast 4
Softened butter 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Chopped fresh herbs 1 Tablespoon
Tomatoes 6 Medium , cut into quarters
Garlic clove 2 , minced
Salt 1 Teaspoon , divided
Pepper 1 Teaspoon , divided
Dried chili flakes 1/2 Teaspoon
Extra virgin olive oil 2 Tablespoon
Garlic powder 1/2 Teaspoon
Grated parmesan cheese 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Dried rotini noodles 450 Gram
Sea salt 2 Tablespoon (Boiled in salt water)

Directions

MAKING

1. Toss the tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, salt, pepper and dried chili flakes in a large bowl to coat.

2. Mix the fresh herbs like thyme and rosemary into the butter and place onto a piece of saran wrap.

3. Roll to form a quarter inch in diameter tube and place in the refrigerator to harden. When the butter has set, cut into discs, and stuff 2 discs each into slits made in boneless skinless breasts (as per the video).

4. Squeeze the chicken breast together to seal and then rub the outside with a tsp of additional butter and sprinkle with the mixture of salt, pepper, and garlic powder.

5. Spread the tomato mixture onto a baking sheet with the seed sides facing down, and place the chicken breasts alongside. Bake in a 350 oven for an hour.

6. Remove the chicken to a platter, cover to keep warm, and then mash the roasted tomatoes and garlic until it forms a rustic slightly chunky sauce. Reserve a half cup of the sauce for the chicken.

7. Boil the spaghetti noodles in well salted boiling water until al dente (seven minutes) and add a quarter cup of the pasta water to the sauce in the pot. Pour in the cooked, drained spaghetti, and toss with a quarter cup of fresh grated parmesan cheese.

SERVING

8. Thinly slice the chicken breasts and serve over top the cooked spaghetti. Pour the reserved sauce in equal amounts over each dish.
