Penne with Chicken and Feta Cheese

Rated

Ingredients

2 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
2 whole Garlic cloves, minced
1 cup low-sodium chicken broth
4 whole Boneless skinless chicken breast, halved
28 oz canned plum tomatoes
2 tsp dried oregano, crumbled
¼ cup flat leaf parsley, chopped
1 lb penne or ziti pasta
1 cup crumbled feta cheese

Preparation

In a skillet set over medium heat, warm the oil for 1 minute. Add the garlic, and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the chicken broth. Increase the heat and bring the broth to a boil. Add the chicken. Reduce the heat to a steady simmer and poach the chicken in the broth for 4 minutes.

Add the tomatoes, breaking them up with the back of a wooden spoon. Add the oregano and flat-leaf parsley. Keep the sauce at a steady simmer. The idea is to reduce the sauce and have it ready at the same time as the pasta.

While the sauce is cooking, cook the pasta in boiling salted water until it is al dente. Drain well. Divide the pasta among four heated serving plates. Ladle sauce over the pasta. Sprinkle an equal amount of feta cheese over each plate.
