This is an easy-to-prepare, wonderful, flavorful pasta dish that gets rave reviews! I have had many friends ask me for this recipe. After my friends prepared this dish for their friends, their friends would ask my friends for it. Goes well with a crisp, green salad and garlic bread.

Wow! After reading all of the reviews, I decided to "marinate" my chicken in 1 tbl of oil infused with italian spices & 1 tbl balsamic vinegar. That's how I always do my chicken! I used 2 tlb of the oil from the sundried and 1 tbl plain olive oil to sautee the garlic. I made 1/2 c chicken broth and poured a bit at a time in the pasta to keep moist. To the chicken I added crushed red and sliced artichoke hearts. This tasted exactly like a dish I get at a local Italian Restaurant! Just awesome.

A wonderful, easy standard in our rotation of meals. Don't change the ingredients, but I do have a few tips for easy prep: I double this, and put the chicken, sun-dried tomatoes and SDT oil, and all remaining ingredients (except parm and noodles) into 2 large zip lock bags. I throw 1 bag in the fridge until I'm ready to cook it in the evening, and the other bag goes into the freezer. When I go to make this meal again in the future, I pull out the frozen bag and thaw it which also marinates the meat a the same time. I heat a pan, dump it in, and it's done even before the noodles!!

Very tasty and quick recipe. I put the chicken,oil from the sun-dried tomatoes, and herbs into a large zip lock bag a marinated it in the refrigerator for an hour before cooking. I also added some red pepper flakes to spice it up. I made the Garden Herb Loaf from this site to serve with it. Between the colorful pasta and the pretty herb bread that was a quick braided loaf, it was a beautiful presentation. Thanks Cindy.
