One Pot Greek Chicken Pasta Recipe

I was challenged to create a One Pot Meal by Good Cook.com to let you all know about an exciting Kitchen Drawer Contest Good Cook is getting ready to launch! Good Cook sent sent me a few kitchen gadgets to try out in exchange for sharing my delicious and easy recipe for One Pot Greek Chicken Pasta! But I received no monetary compensation for this post.

One Pot Greek Chicken Pasta #ad @goodcookcomI’m a pretty messy cook, I have to admit. For some reason, it is not normally within my range of duties to clean as I go. I need to work on that, really. When Good Cook challenged a bunch of bloggers to create a one pot meal, I was pretty excited. It forced me to think a bit outside the box to recreate this dish that my family loves with fewer dirty dishes!  Sounds like a win-win combo to me!

This Greek Chicken Pasta is a quick meal for a busy night. It goes together easily and has nice flavors of garlic, oregano, feta cheese, and kalamata olives. I love these flavors and turning it into a one pot meal wasn’t all that hard. Here’s how you can have this easy, one pot meal on your table in just about 20 minutes!

Stir Pasta Greek Chicken PastaThe first thing to do is get your pasta cooking – so boil a large pot of water and cook your pasta. You’ll want to choose a pot that you intend to cook the whole meal in – I used my 7 quart dutch oven, my absolute favorite pot ever. While your noodles are cooking (mine took about 10 minutes), prep your other ingredients and tidy up your kitchen! Then, drain your pasta, stir well to keep from clumping together, and set aside.
Cut onion Greek Chicken Pasta #ad @goodcookcomThe next few steps should all be done while the pasta is cooking: first,  finely chop a medium sized onion. Red onions add a nice flavor to this dish, but you can use whatever type of onion you have on hand.
Chop Garlic Greek Chicken PastaThen, finely chop (or press) 3 cloves of garlic. Never skimp on garlic. It add such a nice flavor!

Now, dice up about one pound of chicken. I used a breast tenderloin because the pieces are thinner and cook up quicker.

Finally, use a clean knife and a new cutting board so you don’t get salmonella on these next ingredients {don’t cross contaminate the chicken juice now}, and prepare the  feta cheese, roma tomatoes, and kalamata olives.

Add spices Greek Chicken PastaI used this handy dandy utensil pot clip from Good Cook to hold my bamboo spoon while my chicken cooked. It allowed me to keep my stove clean by keeping the spoon up on the pot!  Add spices –  oregano, salt and pepper.  Good Cook also sent me a pretty nifty double sided flip measuring spoon. This measuring spoon is great for small kitchens – 1/4 tsp, 1/2 tsp, 1 tsp, 1 TBS are  all together right on one spoon! Stir the chicken every couple of minutes until it’s finished cooking – about 5-6 minutes is all it took mine to cook.
