Chicken & Bow Tie Pasta
I love to cook but even more I love to bless my family.
My husband however is a picky eater and does not like a lot of ingredients that most people like. It makes it hard to be creative and I love being creative too. So when this recipe for Chicken & Bow Tie Pasta came up in my bible study I knew he wouldn't go for the feta cheese. My father had a birthday coming up so I decided to stop at the store and get all the ingredients for the dish and make it for him on his birthday. My mother got right into the act, she too loves to be creative and try new things. I even took my No Other Gods book with me to the store and opened it up on my cart to use it as a shopping list. I had to laugh and thought of Beth Moores story about her doing that and the people at the store looking at her like she was crazy.
The dish was great I had fun and best of all, my father was blessed!
I will post the recipe for those of you who are not doing the No Other Gods study but might like to try the dish
1 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breast
1 lb. bowtie pasta
2pkg. sun-dried tomatoes, softened and cut into strips
1 whole head of garlic (minced)
1 can pitted black olives (chopped)
16 oz feta cheese, crumbled
1/2 cup pine nuts toasted
Slice chicken into bite sized pieces and saute with sun-dried tomatoes and minced garlic until chicken is cooked through. Cook pasta according to package directions. In large bowl, mix crumbled feta, pine nuts, and chopped olives. After the chicken mixture is done add it to the dry ingredients and toss. When pasta is cooked, add it to the rest of the ingedients and toss again
I found that this serves 4 generously! for a large family you could just double the recipe
Ready to serve! Serve with your favorite bread and dipping oil
