video instructions available below 👇 


– 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, thinly sliced
– 8 oz penne pasta (or your preferred pasta shape)
– 2 tablespoons olive oil
– 3 cloves garlic, minced
– 1 onion, finely chopped
– 1 red bell pepper, sliced
– 1 yellow bell pepper, sliced
– 1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
– 1 teaspoon dried oregano
– 1 teaspoon dried basil
– 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, for added heat)
– Salt and black pepper to taste
– 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
– Fresh basil leaves for garnish


1. **Cook the Pasta**: Begin by cooking the penne pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving about 1/2 cup of the cooking water, and set aside.

2. **Prepare the Chicken**: In a large skillet, heat one tablespoon of olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the thinly sliced chicken breasts with salt and black pepper, then add them to the skillet. Cook the chicken until golden brown and cooked through, about 5-6 minutes per side. Once cooked, transfer the chicken to a plate and set aside.

3. **Sauté the Aromatics**: In the same skillet, add the remaining tablespoon of olive oil. Add the minced garlic and chopped onion, and sauté until fragrant and softened, about 2-3 minutes.

4. **Add the Vegetables**: Stir in the sliced red and yellow bell peppers, and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until they begin to soften. Add the halved cherry tomatoes to the skillet, and cook for another 2 minutes until they start to release their juices.

5. **Combine Chicken and Seasonings**: Return the cooked chicken to the skillet with the vegetables. Sprinkle dried oregano, dried basil, and red pepper flakes (if using) over the mixture. Stir well to combine, allowing the flavors to meld together.

6. **Bring It All Together**: Add the cooked penne pasta to the skillet, along with a splash of the reserved pasta cooking water. Toss everything together gently, ensuring that the pasta is well coated with the flavorful sauce.

7. **Serve and Garnish**: Transfer the Italian Chicken Pasta to a serving dish or individual plates. Sprinkle grated Parmesan cheese over the top and garnish with fresh basil leaves for a burst of color and flavor.
