Just made it up tonight, and it's all gone now, so I thought I'd post it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix the chicken in a bowl with the oregano, basil, salt, and pepper.
  2. Sauté in the olive oil over medium-high heat until lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Remove chicken from the pan and set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in the same pan and sauté the shallot until translucent, then add the mushrooms and sauté for a few minutes.
  4. Reduce heat to medium-low and add the tomatoes, sugar, and penne, stirring well.
  5. Cook the mixture down for a few minutes, then add the mozzarella and 1 tablespoon of the parmesan and stir.
  6. Correct the seasoning (salt and pepper) to taste, and serve topped with remaining parmesan.

Saw Chef1MOM's review and had "Picollino" Penne --tiny ones, and much of the suggested additions. Instead of canned tomatoes, had halved grape tomatoes, some fresh broccoli, green onions, (forgot the sugar !) - and canned mushrooms. Added some extra olive oil at the end, and had a very nice all-in-one-dish dinner !!Thanks for posting, E/Nigma

Made for PAC2009. This is super duper for me. A quick lunch or dinner for DH and I. I followed the recipe minus mushrooms (not allowed). I like the flavor although it seemed to be missing that punch of something to kickstart the tastebuds. (garlic or adobo, or something) I will definitley make this again as the ease of making is great and I cN play with the gusto. I can see using up that leftover chicken from dinner to make a whole new meal. I can see adding in some brocolli or asparagus as well. YUMMMMMMMY Thank you. A keeper in my book for sure.

This recipe makes 2 generous servings. Some sliced garlic was added and 1 cup of canned tomatoes. A delicious, quick, weeknight meal. Made for *PAC Spring 2008*
