Angel Hair Pasta with Chicken, Artichoke Hearts, Tomatoes, Capers, Feta, and Lemon

Angel Hair Pasta with Chicken, Artichoke Hearts, Tomatoes, Capers, Feta, and Lemon

I wanted to make a light and simple pasta dish that used up ingredients I had on hand. I found angel hair pasta, grape tomatoes, chicken broth garlic, and lemon in the pantry and some chicken breasts, artichoke hearts, capers, and feta cheese in the refrigerator. Together, I thought they would make a tasty dish… I was right.  I loved how light and healthy this pasta tasted and how simple and quick it was to make. My husband and I both really loved it and my daughter said it was good but my son wasn’t a fan. Oh well, you can’t win them all.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Season the chopped chicken with sea salt, freshly cracked pepper, and garlic powder, to taste. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-6 minutes.

Prepare the pasta in salted water per instructions. Angel hair usually takes 3-5 minutes to cook. Drain once it has finished cooking.

Remove the cooked chicken from the skillet and place into a bowl. Add a drizzle more of olive  oil to the skillet then add the artichoke hearts, grape tomatoes, capers, and a dash of crushed red pepper flakes. Cook , stirring occasionally  for 2 minutes. Add the minced garlic, and cook, stirring constantly  for 1 minute. Add the chicken broth and lemon juice to the skillet then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste. Cook for 2 minutes then add the cooked and drained angel hair pasta to the pan along with most of the parsley. Toss until evenly coated with the sauce. Pour into a serving bowl then top with feta cheese and the remaining chopped parsley. Serve immediately. Enjoy.

    YUM!!!

  3. I almost always have all of those ingredients on hand!

  4. You had my attention at angel hair pasta and the list just got better and better! I would love a dish of this….even for breakfast!

  5. It’s always good to use up the contents of the refrigerator. It’s even better when it’s nearly universally popular. We all need fussbudgets to gripe once in a while, so we remember how nice it is when they don’t grumble! My dudes would enjoy this.

  6. I always love your pasta dishes! I’m attempting a cook at home for 31 days in a row challenge.. so this will definitely be added to the list of meals to make for dinner 🙂

  7. Artichokes are one veggie that I love but definitely don’t cook with enough! What a fabulous way to use them!

  8. You know what’s sad? I saw feta cheese in the preview and got excited before I even knew what it was!

  9. artichokes! i think we need to find more ways to use those things, and this is a great example. 🙂

  10. This would be exceptional stuffed into a pita pocket and grilled!
