I knew I was going to use chicken breast. I just didn't know what I was going to do with the chicken. I dug through the pantry and fridge and found what is in the picture above. The capers and the sun dried tomatoes had been in the fridge for awhile. I asked myself "do capers go bad?" I guess I would find out!
I decided to season the chicken with garlic powder, dried parsley, dried basil and dried oregano. And salt. I would have added pepper too but my pepper mill is broken and I am too cheap to buy a new one.
I didn't measure any of the spices, but the chicken looked like this when I was done:
I sauteed 4 chicken breasts in a non-stick pan with 1 T olive oil. Meanwhile I had also found a half of a box of lasagne noodles, which I broke up and boiled in water. After the noodles were done cooking, I drained them, put them back in the pot and added:
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 can diced tomatoes with garlic and basil
- 5-6 tsp capers
- 1 small can sliced black olives
- 1/2 can chicken stock
- capers do not go bad (yippee!)
- the chicken did not have any flavor
- the pasta and the "sauce" were pretty good
- extra cheese made everything better
