Description

A quick weeknight pasta dish made (almost) entirely from pantry items. Very flavorful and delicious.

Ingredients

  • 2 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • ½ whole Red Onion, Diced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 can (14.5 Ounce) Diced Tomatoes With Juice
  • ⅓ cups Assorted Olives, Pitted And Roughly Chopped
  • ⅓ cups White Wine
  • 2 whole Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts, Pounded To Even Thickness
  • Kosher Salt
  • Freshly Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese
  • ½ pounds Linguine, Cooked Al Dente And Drained
  • 1 teaspoon Olive Oil

Preparation

Heat medium skillet over medium-low heat. Add olive oil. When warm add diced red onion and stir. Cook slowly for five minutes, stirring occasionally. Add garlic, then stir and cook for one minute. Pour in diced tomatoes with their juice. Add chopped olives. Stir and cook for a minute or two.

Splash in wine, then stir and simmer over low heat for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

While sauce is cooking, sprinkle salt and freshly ground black pepper over the chicken breasts. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter in a separate skillet. Cook on both sides until golden brown and done. Set aside.

Toss cooked linguine in olive oil and arrange on a small platter. Spoon 3/4 of the sauce over the pasta. Place chicken on top, then spoon remaining sauce over the chicken. Sprinkle on grated Parmesan and serve immediately.

I have made this a ton of times for my family. I only changed the chicken in to shrimp. We sometimes just get tried of chicken. My 5yr old loves it. He is a PB&J sandwich diet right now. He eats the noodles and the shrimp.

I make all of your pasta dishes. I’m sure I’ll try this one too. Sounds delicious.

I made this last night for me and my husband. I chose it because it required few ingredients. Wow! It was really delicious! I used chicken tenderloins (about a pound) instead of chicken breasts, and it turned out just fine. We have enough left over for tonight, and I can’t wait for the repeat!

I made this last night. I loved it and my husband loved it also! I didn’t have any wine on hand (I’m pregnant…don’t shoot me), so I used white wine vinegar and it did the trick. I also added some red pepper flakes for some heat. It definitely made more than 2 servings, so I am enjoying it for lunch again today. Thank you for such an easy and delightful dinner!

Very good! I love the wine in this dish. I added Italian seasoning because we love it. Yum, yum!
