INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb spaghetti
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, divided
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta
  • 1/4 cup sliced black olives
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

In a large pot of salted boiling water, add the spaghetti and cook according to package. Reserve 1 cup of pasta water and drain.

Meanwhile, heat a skillet over medium-high. Rub the chicken with 2 Tbsp of olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Add to the pan and cook until done and juices run clear, about 6-7 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and let rest 5 minutes.

To the skillet add the remaining olive oil along with the garlic and sun dried tomatoes. Cook 3 minutes on low. Add in the crushed red pepper flakes and 1/4 cup of the reserved water. Add in the spaghetti and toss to coat. Turn off heat.

Meanwhile chop the chicken into bite-size pieces. Add to the skillet along with the parmesan, feta, and olives. Season and serve.

If you do not like spice, leave out the crushed red pepper flakes.
