Courtesy of Sara

What you need:

Chicken breasts (preferrably with fat cut off)

ScallionsA can of olives, drained

Can of stewed tomatoes1-2 Zucchini

Garlic & other seasonings (optional, to your liking)

1 egg


Box of pasta of your choosing (penne recommended)

Merlot/Red wine (optional)

How to prepare:

First, you need to cook the chicken in a large pan/deep skillet. Do this by dipping it into the egg mixture, then rolling it into the flour. Cook the chicken for about 10 minutes (when it looks fairly well-cooked).

In the meantime, chop up the scallions and zucchini. Once the chicken is cooked, add the can of stewed tomatos to the chicken, along with a splash of merlot or other red wine (the wine is optional). Also, add the olives, zucchini, scallions, and any other seasonings you choose. Make sure the heat on the stove is turned down to a low/simmer setting.Once the chicken is all prepared, cook your pasta according to the directions on the box. Serve a piece of chicken over a 1/2 cup of pasta per person.

Serves 3-4 people.
