ingredients

  • 12 ounces whole-wheat bow-tie pasta
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts, trimmed and thinly sliced
  • Salt & freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 2 small red bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried
  • 1 package (9 ounces) frounceen artichoke hearts, thawed, or 1 can (14 ounces), rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted (see Tip)

directions

Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and rinse under cold water until cooled. Set aside.

Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a wok or large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and sauté until no longer pink inside, 2 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pan. Add peppers, shallots and garlic, and sauté until the peppers are tender-crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Add to the reserved chicken.

Add broth, vinegar and rosemary to the pan and bring to a boil. Add artichokes and the reserved pasta and cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Return the reserved chicken mixture to the pan and toss with the pasta. Taste and adjust seasoning and sprinkle with pine nuts. Serve warm.

Tip: To toast pine nuts, place them in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.
