Penne Mediterranean

Penne Mediterranean

Recipe found here. Video recipe is here.

I was cooking for 2 so I cut all ingredients in 1/2 from their recipe. I used broccoli in place of mushrooms and didn't add chili.

salt for boiled water & chicken
2 cloves garlic
1 cup broccoli
1/2 tbsp Italian flat-leaf parsley
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes, packed
1 boneless, skinless chicken breast
1/8 cup dry white wine
1 cup chicken stock
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
freshly ground pepper
1.5c of penne pasta
1/2 cup feta cheese (4 ounces)
extra-virgin olive oil to drizzle over

Cut up the garlic into small pieces
Cut up the broccoli into smaller pieces, boil to soften for 4mins
Cut up the parsley into small pieces
Cut the tomatoes in half if desired
Cut up the chicken into bite size pieces

Boil water, add salt, start pasta
The $2 box of organic penne I bought from Henry's was going to take 12mins to cook.

Pre heat pan, add olive oil, add chicken when oil is ready.
Cook for a couple of minutes and flip over. After a couple more minutes, remove chicken.
Add in btoccoli, cook for a couple minutes. Increate heat and add the tomatoes and garlic.
After 30s, add the wine to deglaze. After reduced, add the chicken stock. As it simmers down to 1/3 the size, the pasta should be ready. Add the chicken back in to finish cooking. Add the pasta. Mix up. Add the parsley and feta cheese. Mix then serve. Drizzle a little olive oil and add pepper if desired.
