Mediterranean Chicken With Feta Cheese

"This is a delicious and LIGHT! pasta dish as well as quite easy to make. If you love meat, then double the chicken... in the recipe I halved the original amount and like it much better that way. I added the kalamata olives to the original recipe and find it makes it a much better dish (but I loved it before the addition). I also use less feta than called for since I reserve a portion without for myself... I don't like feta. 30 minutes total prep and cooking... I work the whole time it's cooking. Enjoy!"

ingredients

directions

  • Bring water to boil for pasta, then follow package instructions and check for doneness (since recipes always take me a little longer than the stated time, I don't usually start cooking the pasta at the very beginning!).
  • Heat oil over medium heat in a large skillet.
  • Chop onions coarsely and add to pot.
  • Cut chicken into bite-size pieces and add to pot.
  • Raise heat to med-high.
  • Cook until chicken is not pink on the outside (about 3 minutes).
  • Add garlic, oregano, and basil and continue cooking chicken. Stir frequently.
  • When chicken is cooked through, stir in wine and cook 1 minute.
  • Add tomatoes with juice and continue cooking a few minutes until it becomes less juicy.
  • Stir in feta cheese and kalamata olives.
  • Garnish with parsley.
  • Serve over hot drained orzo -- sometimes I mix it all together.

    We really enjoyed this recipe. I made as directed substituting only corn pasta to accommodate my wife's gluten free diet. I chose penne but next time (and there will be a next time) will select something more delicate to complement the sauce. The wine in this dish really makes it sing. I used a chardonnay.I also used the full complement (8 oz.) of feta setting aside 2 oz. to sprinkle on top just before serving. Thanks for sharing Tanya! Made for PAC Spring 2012.
