we love greek food
we love pasta
so when i found this recipe for greek chicken pasta, i decided to try it.
upon reading the recipe, however, i decided to take what i liked about it (the artichoke hearts and feta cheese, namely) and create a new recipe based loosely on it.
here's what happened
greek chicken pasta
2 tbsp olive oil
salt, freshly ground pepper, greek seasoning, oregano
1 sweet onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 pound of chicken, cut into cubes (i used boneless skinless breasts)
1/2 cup white wine (this is how much was left in the bottle in my fridge...so use more or less depending on your preference)
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 can diced tomatoes with oregano, basil and garlic
1 can artichoke hearts, drained
1 container feta cheese with mediterranean herbs (or reserve a bit for sprinkling on top)
penne or bow-tie pasta, cooked according to package directions
begin by heating your olive oil and spicestoss in the onions and garlic, saute for 5 minutes
add the cubed chicken and a second round of spices (including a whole lot of greek seasoning)
add the white wine, and cook down for about 3 minutes
add the chicken broth, tomatoes, artichoke hearts and feta
serve up over your warm & freshly cooked penne, sprinkle with reserved feta
*in the future i will likely marinate the chicken first, perhaps in lime juice and greek seasonings. i dislike chicken that is bland, and it just didn't have the great flavor of the sauce to me. however, leftovers were a little better in that regard, so i'll be playing around with this a bit!
