This dish comes from Sarah who is a full-time working mom and still finds the time to do a lot of canning and gardening. I admire her for all she does and she has some very tasty things on her blog Today’s Menu Take it or Leave it
. She plans out her menu for the week and then shares her recipes as the week goes on. I’m lucky if I can even come up with the general idea for the week like this week I feel like chicken, so I really look up to people that can plan out meals like that.
I really loved this recipe! My husbands first impression was “where’s the sauce”. He’s used to the traditional pastas and I can’t blame him what that’s all I make. There’s a light sauce, but more then anything this pasta is packed with flavor. I can’t wait to make it again!
Greek Chicken Pasta
1 pound uncooked pasta
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 cloves garlic, crushed (I chopped mine finely)
1/2 cup chopped red onion (I used a half yellow onion, medium-sized, but will probably use a whole one next time)
1 pound skinless, boneless chicken breast meat – cut into bite-size pieces
1 (14 ounce) can marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 large tomato, chopped (I used a can of diced tomatoes with green chilies)
1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (I used dried)
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons dried oregano
salt and pepper to taste
2 lemons, wedged, for garnish (I skipped this)
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.
Meanwhile, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and onion, and saute for 2 minutes. Stir in the chicken. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink and the juices run clear, about 5 to 6 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium-low, and add the artichoke hearts, tomato, feta cheese, parsley, lemon juice, oregano and cooked pasta. Stir until heated through, about 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from heat, season to taste with salt and pepper, and garnish with lemon wedges.
P.S. Mary I love the platter that I won from your Anniversary giveaway! Thank you again!!!
