Chicken & Pasta With Marinara Sauce

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Claudia Dawn

OMG! You've got to try this! My DH created this 10 years ago. I forgot how wonderful it tastes. There was a time where we had this at least once a week! I'm posting this in response to someone had 3 chicken breasts and wanted a quick and easy recipe that would feed 5. This will feed five, but they will be fighting over the leftovers (if there are any!).

Quick and easy. I used cooked leftover chicken breasts which really cut down on the prep time. I also used plain petite cut diced tomatoes because I am not a fan of the stewed tomatoes. All the dried herbs in this dish seasoned them perfectly.
