16 ounces of Linguine or pasta of your choice.

1 kilo of chicken meat, breast or thighs, chopped into bite-size pieces

A can of marinated Artichoke hearts drained and chopped.

Med red onion, chopped.

1 large tomato, chopped.

A half cup of feta cheese, crumbled.

1 tbsp Olive Oil.

2tbsp lemon juice.

3 tbsp chopped parsley and a little extra for garnish.

3 cloves of garlic crushed.

2tsp oregano

Salt and Pepper to season.

Lemon wedges to serve.

Let’s Cook!

Cook pasta in boiling salted water until al-dente. About 8 mins.

Heat oil in a pan, add onion and garlic and cook on medium heat for about 2 minutes.

Stir in chicken and then cook for 5-6 mins until juices run clear and chicken is cooked, stirring occasionally.

Reduce the heat, add artichoke hearts, feta, tomato, parsley, oregano and lemon juice, warm through and then add pasta and stir gently to combine. Remove from heat and check seasoning and add salt and pepper as needed to taste.

Garnish with lemon wedges and a little parsley.

Sometimes I use basil(instead of parsley) and a few olives for a change.

Enjoy!
