Shredded Chicken Pasta With Fried Basil and Feta

Shredded Chicken Pasta With Fried Basil and Feta created by Kelly N.

Oh, this is so good! I made this last night, almost against my better judgment. I can't believe I nearly missed out on it! It is so easy, and every step is worth it! Serve it with Lemon Wedges, the extra citrus is an amazing taste, and the presentation is gorgeous!

ingredients

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!

    my family liked this but didn't love it. a little to plain for our taste. they did the the "interaction" with squeezing their own lemon wedges over the dish.

    This is very simple and very good, a little more feta would have been good. I threw in some capers and yes, the lemon brings a lot to this dish.

    This was excellent! I used leftover chicken, which made the total cook time shorter. Don't forget the lemon!!! I also used more basil than it called for. I was surprised at the great taste, because the recipe is so basic...I really thought maybe it would be boring. Even my picky husband loved it!

    This was spectacular! It doesn't seem like it is going to be anything special (I even had a jar of roasted red peppers at the ready!) but go with it - trust the recipe! OUTSTANDING!! The lemon is critical. It brings a brightness to the dish that is essential to pulling the flavors together. Hardest part? Frying the basil. Don't let it go brown. Just 10 seconds per side and drained on paper towel. DO IT! You'll be glad you did! MADE FOR PAC FALL 07
