Greek Chicken Pasta



Even though it's Cinco de Mayo, we decided to go Greek for lunch....why not!

There is nothing better than kalamata olives, garlic and toasted pine nuts with feta cheese to get you through the afternoon of loads of paperwork.

We currently have wine club shipments leaving the building and it's busy...busy....busy.

By the way, this meal pairs quite nicely with our Noble Pig Pinot Blanc...it's just outstanding together.

Anyway, give this one a try, it's a mouthwatering way to spend a meal!

Greek Chicken Pasta
From Sunset

6 oz. spaghetti
3 Tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped onion
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
8 oz. baby spinach
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 teaspoon red chile flakes
1 cup pitted kalamata olives, halved
1 cup toasted pine nuts
1/2 teaspoon each kosher salt and pepper
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
3 oz. good quality feta cheese, crumbled

Cook spaghetti as package directs.

Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.  Add onion and garlic and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.  Stir in spinach, wine, chile flakes, olives, pine nuts, salt and pepper.

Drain pasta, return to pot, and add onion mixture and chicken. Stir to coat and cook over medium heat until warmed, about 4 minutes.  Transfer to plates and top with feta cheese.

  1. Yummy! I’ll be making this in the next day or so! Perfect kind of recipe for the 90+F temps we have at the moment! No oven or long cooking times involved. Perfect. Thank you!

    This easy to prepare meal comes packed with flavor! These are all my favorite flavors combined. Maybe some pepperoncini would make it a little zestier, but I will try this one as is first. You picked just the right flavors for me!

  6. I love chicken salad and this sounds like it has a lot of flavor. I am trying it!

  7. This looks like a gourmet version of the greek salad that I order way too often for delivery! Yumm. Greek olives satisfy my salt craving like nothing else.

  8. Oh my gosh, this looks delicious and it fits within my healthy eating plan to lose the baby weight – I love this take on the Greek Salad!

  9. Just made this pasta for a church meeting last night. It turned out great! Check out my own blog post about it…link to yummayumma.blogspot.com

    This looks quite interesting, something to try when you can’t think of anything to cook!

    Oh my YUMS! I made this on Saturday night and it was a hit! It’s perfect for this time of year (summer at the beach.) Tastes just as good, if not better the next day cold. Thanks Noble Pig, for yet again introducing me to greatness!
