Creamy Garlic Chicken

Creamy Garlic Chicken
1/2 cup butter, divided (the butter helps make the sauce)
3 Tbsp olive oil
1 red onion, cut into strips
1 yellow bell pepper, cut into strips
1 red bell pepper, cut into strips
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/2 to 1 tsp garlic salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
1 1/2 to 2 lbs Penne Pasta
Cut up chicken to bite sized pieces, saute in a large skillet in 1/4 cup butter and 3 Tbsp olive oil. Sprinkle with garlic salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Cook until done, and set aside. In the same pan add 1/4 cup butter and add the onion, red and yellow bell pepper. Cook until soft. Add the 3 garlic cloves that have been minced. When you can smell the garlic, add the unwhipped whipping cream and simmer for about 15 minutes or until the sauce is thickened.
Add chicken to the cream mixture. Cook pasta and toss with the cream mixture. Top with freshly grated Parmesan or Romano cheese.
This recipe serves about 8-10 people. This recipe is adapted slightly from a recipe given to me by Kelli M.
