Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless chicken breasts
  • 1teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2cans diced tomatoes with basil, garlic, and oregano
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 pound whole wheat fettuccini pasta
  • 4 ounces reduced fat feta cheese
  • finely chopped fresh basil
Instructions
  1. In a large pot with a lid, heat the avocado oil over high for 1 minute, then add the chicken breast pieces. Sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon salt and the black pepper. Cook the chicken on one side for 8 minutes, moving it around in the pan to prevent sticking, but not too much, so that a nice crust will form. Lower the heat as needed if the chicken seems to be cooking too quickly. Flip, sprinkle with the remaining 1/2 teapsoon salt, ten cook for 5 additional minutes, until the chicken is cooked through
  2. Add the diced tomatoes and water. Stir in the pasta and cook, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Cover and let cook an additional 10 minutes.
  3. Remove the lid, stir, then add three-quarters of the feta. Stir once more, then let cook uncovered for 5 additional minutes. Serve warm, sprinkled with the remaining feta cheese and fresh basil.
