Ingredients

    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast filets
    1 medium onion, very coarsely chopped
    1/2 cup sliced black olives
    2 tablespoons capers
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 small sprig fresh rosemary leaves
    1/2 tsp garlic powder
    1 16oz can petite diced tomatoes with juice
    1 tablespoon cornstarch
    3 cups uncooked whole wheat rotini
    1 teaspoon olive oil

Directions

Place chicken in a slow cooker. Sprinkle onion, olives, capers, herbs and spices. Pour diced tomatoes with juice over all. (This can be prepared to this point the night before and refrigerated.)
Slow cook 8-10 hours on low.
Remove chicken. Mix cornstarch with about 1/4 cup of water to form a smooth liquid. Stir into pan juices and vegetables. Turn slowcooker to high and stir occasionally until thickened.
Heat 6 cups water, 1 tsp olive oil, and a generous dash of salt in a large saucepan. Stir in rotini. Cook at a slow boil until tender. Drain. Stir rotini into pan juices. Place chicken in pot, cover with rotine and sauce and let sit for 10 minutes.

Generously serves 4.
