Pasta with Chicken and Sun-Dried Tomatoes

IMG_1473

 

This recipe is adapted from one of Tyler Florence’s recipes. I saw him make this dish on his Food 911 show YEARS ago. It’s so simple and quick. If you want the full Mediterranean taste, you can find his recipe (Mediterranean Pasta in Minutes) on www.Foodnetwork.com. His recipe calls for olives and artichoke hearts, but because I have picky eaters in the family, I’ve had to changed it up a little.

What you will need:
1 lb pasta (cooked according to directions on the box)
1 lb chicken breast (I use the chicken tenderloins)
6 oz feta cheese
1 cup sun dried tomatoes
1/4 cup heavy cream
Parmesan cheese

Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat
Brown chicken – 3-4 min each side

Once chicken is cooked I usually chop it up in to bite size pieces

Return chicken to skillet and add sun-dried tomatoes and some garlic.
Saute for 2-3 minutes
