Chicken Tomato Pasta

"This is something I whipped up trying to make up my own pasta sauce one night. Much to my surprise, it seems to have turned out reasonably well. Times are estimated and do not include pasta cooking time."

Ready In:




  • Heat oil in a medium nonstick skillet.
  • Pound chicken breast until it is an even thickness.
  • Add chicken to skillet and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side. (Guideline: On the first side, cook until the meat appears white nearly all the way through with just a touch of pink remaining at the top. Then turn over and cook for the same amount of time again.).
  • Remove chicken from skillet and set aside.
  • Sautee onion and garlic for about one minute, adding more oil to the pan if necessary to prevent burning.
  • Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 3-4 minutes while you cut the chicken into strips.
  • To serve: Place one cup of pasta on each plate. Cover with half of the sauce. Put half of the chicken on top of the sauce. Sprinkle half of the feta cheese over everything. Serve with soft roll or bread stick if desired.

I am, to be honest, somewhat intimidated by the community aspect of this site. I don't really wish to be overly involved in it. (Sorry.) I'm here because RecipeZaar allows me the chance to find a wide variety of excellent recipes, not to be social. For me, this site is a valuable resource... not a community. I say this to explain why I might not be overly wordy in my information here, or in any reviews I might choose to post. Or why I might not choose to review much at all. However, this is a community, so a little about me to get things kicked off. I am a computer programmer living in southern Indiana. In my spare time, I spend even more time on the computer, surfing the Web or coding Web sites. I also read, although I am not as quick at it as I used to be. I tend toward fantasy and science fiction, though lately I've taken a turn into nonfiction about ancient Greek religion. When it comes to food, I cook because I have to. However, if I have to do it, I want it to be good. That's where RecipeZaar comes in.
