Italian Chicken Pasta

"I really like this recipe because the combination of artichokes, roasted peppers and olives gives it a great flavor and it is quick and easy to do. I originally found it in Bon Appetit years ago and it has been a favorite ever since. I sometimes add sun-dried tomatoes in oil but it is really good the way it is- even cold the next day for lunch. I also sometimes use penne or other shaped pasta. This is my first recipe posting and I hope you enjoy it."

    This was good - but not 'great'. Although it was a nice change-of-pace from most chicken dinners, and surprisingly simple to make, nobody at the table rated it 4 or 5 stars. Thanks for sharing though!

    4 Stars=Loved it! Thanks for a quick, yet sophisticated tasty meal. I used 16oz bowtie pasta, doubled the artichokes & chicken. halved-3/4 the onion. Didn't have the olives (but hubby hates 'em anyway). My kids liked it well enough; they thought the pasta and chicken were tasty, although it was harder for them to "choke" down the marinated artichokes and other superfluous vegetables; they did really enjoy the flavors those things imparted onto the pasta. I wondered if the oil from the artichokes would be too much, but it was just fine-not too much at all. We will definitely make this again. Thanks for the recipe!

    Yum! Very easy to put together and very good! I did leave out the artichokes (for me) and the olives (for hubby) and I used penne pasta. Because I left out those things, next time I will probably double the chicken, but it was good as is. Thanks for posting!


I live in the Pittsburgh area but am originally from Montreal and have lived in several states over the years. I am mom to a daughter 15 and a son 11. I have a degree in foods and nutrition and am currently working at a local kitchen store. I am a passionate baker and collector of cookbooks- especially baking and dessert books and community cookbooks but I have thousands of various types. My family are my biggest fans but I love to bake for friends and my kids school events as well. I enjoy traveling, eating out, reading and spending time at home . My pet peeve is people who won't share recipes- I mean, come on... which is why I love recipezaar- it's a giant recipe swap!
