Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts cut into ¾ inch cubes
  • Kosher salt and freshly cracked black pepper
  • 6 cloves garlic chopped
  • 1 14.5-ounce can of diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano
  • 1/2 cup pasta water
  • 1 pound long pasta bucatini is my favorite
  • 8 ounces feta cheese divided
  • fresh basil finely chopped, optional

Instructions

  • In a large pot or Dutch oven with a lid, heat the olive oil over high for 1 minute, then add the chicken. Season liberally with salt and black pepper. Cook the chicken, moving it around in the pan a little to prevent sticking, so that a nice crust will form, about 10 minutes. Flip, sprinkle with the garlic and stir to combine for 30 seconds until fragrant. After 30 seconds, add the diced tomatoes and 6 ounces of the crumbled feta and simmer.
  • Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Once al dente, add ½ cup of the pasta water into the chicken mixture and continue to let it simmer. Drain the pasta and then add to the chicken tomato mixture.
  • Serve warm, sprinkled with the remaining feta cheese and fresh basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
