Chicken and Tomato Pasta

Submitted by: FRANNIEDID

Introduction

This was similar to one we had at a restaurant. It can be changed up in a number of ways, adding olives would be delish! You can change up the seasoning, dried can be used when fresh are not available. Parsley would be a good addition. You can also add crushed red pepper and that would be good. We top it with parmesan cheese but you can definitely do without that. This was similar to one we had at a restaurant. It can be changed up in a number of ways, adding olives would be delish!

Ingredients

    2 tbsp olive oil
    6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts halves cut into bite size pieces
    1 can diced tomatoes
    5 or 6 fresh tomatoes chopped
    about 2 tbsp fresh basil
    about 1 tbsp fresh oregano
    1 onion chopped
    3 cloves garlic minced
    package of pasta of choice (I used Penne)
    Salt and pepper to taste.

Directions

Dice chicken into bite size pieces season with salt and pepper, add olive oil to a large skillet. Brown chicken well, take chicken out and set aside, add onions and garlic, cook until just tender. Add tomatoes, canned and fresh cook until all are just barely falling apart. Check seasoning and add more salt and pepper if desired. Add basil, oregano and chicken.

Serve over cooked pasta, top with parmesan cheese if desired.
