    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
    2. 2
      Add 2 1/2 tsp of salt and penne to the boiling water. Cook according to package directions.
    3. 3
      Sprinkle the chicken with the remaining 1/2 tsp of salt and the oregano.
    4. 4
      Cut the chicken across the short side to create strips.
    5. 5
      Heat the olive oil in a wide skillet over high heat.
    6. 6
      When the oil is hot, add the chicken.
    7. 7
      Spread it out into a single layer.
    8. 8
      Then add the sliced peppers.
    9. 9
      Cook without stirring for about 5 min - you would like the chicken to brown a little bit. If it seems as if it will burn, stir it.
    10. 10
      Add the salsa, stir and cook for about 5 more min or until the chicken is cooked through.
    11. 11
      Remove the skillet from the heat.
    12. 12
      Stir in the sour cream.
    13. 13
      Spoon cooked penne into a serving bowl or onto plates.
    14. 14
      Top with the chicken mixture.
    15. 15
      Sprinkle with chopped cilantro, if desired, and a little of the shredded cheese.

      Loved it ! I used green peppers instead of red, and a jar of medium salsa verde. Turned out great - some heat, but not too much. The cilantro and cheese were the perfect finish. Thanks!

      Maybe I didn't do it right, but the portions didn't turn out quite right. 2 red bell peppers was way more than I needed. I just used one. Served WAY more than four- I think my husband and I will be eating this for the next week. Serving size should be 6-8. Other than that, however, it turned out pretty well, and was fairly simple. Next time I am going to add some shrimp, tapatio (or hotter salsa) and a little lime juice. Yuummmyy

      DH and I wish there was a 10 star rating. This dish was quick to make and had a unique flavor. We used Herdez Salsa (our favorite) and to guarantee plenty of HOT, I sprinkled the chicken pieces with about 1/8 tsp. of cayenne prior to cooking the chicken. This is certainly a keeper.
