- Total Time
If you don’t feel like slicing chicken breasts for this recipe, buy chicken tenders—bite-size pieces of skinless boneless chicken breast.
olive oil2 Tbsp, extra-virgin
uncooked boneless skinless chicken breast(s)¾ pound(s), halves, cut into 1-inch chunks
table salt½ tsp
black pepper¼ tsp, freshly ground
uncooked onion(s)1 medium, sliced
garlic clove(s)3 clove(s), medium, minced
canned artichoke hearts without oil14 oz, drained, patted dry, and quartered
roasted red peppers (packed in water)12 oz, jarred, drained, patted dry, and cut into strips
white wine⅓ cup(s)
reduced-sodium chicken broth1 cup(s)
cooked penne6 cup(s)
grated Parmesan cheese¼ cup(s), Romano variety
fresh parsley¼ cup(s), fresh, chopped
- Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sprinkle with 1⁄4 teaspoon of the salt and 1⁄8 teaspoon of the pepper. Cook, turning occasionally, until lightly browned and just cooked through, 3–4 minutes. Transfer to a plate and set aside.
- Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the same skillet over medium-high heat. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion begins to soften, about 2 minutes. Stir in the artichoke hearts and roasted peppers. Cook, stirring, about 1 minute. Add the wine and cook until the liquid is reduced by half, about 1 minute. Stir in the broth and bring to a simmer.
- Add the pasta to the skillet and cook, tossing occasionally, until heated through and the liquid thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Add the chicken and the remaining 1⁄4 teaspoon salt and 1⁄8 teaspoon pepper. Cook until the chicken is heated through, about 1 minute. Remove from the heat, then stir in the cheese and parsley. Yields 1 1/2 cups per serving.
