DIRECTIONS

  • Boil salted water in a saucepan for the pasta. Cook until done. About 4 minutes for fresh, and 8 minutes for dried pasta. Drain and set aside.
  • While pasta is cooking, rub salt and pepper on the chicken breasts. (This is optional, but I like the extra flavoring.) Heat olive oil in a large skillet.
  • Cook the chicken in the oil about 3 minutes on each side or until juices run clear.
  • Remove the chicken from the pan, and shred. Mix chicken and feta with the pasta.
  • Add a little more oil to the pan and fry the basil. Remove when it is crispy. (Don't worry, once it's past the wilted stage, it will crisp up. Believe me!).
  • Top pasta with the fried basil and serve with lemon wedges.
  • Enjoy!
