I really love sun-dried tomatoes. There is something about the sweetness and that concentrated tomato flavor that I just really enjoy. So, I had some chicken that I had to do something with. When we lived in El Paso, we went to an expensive restaurant called Cafe Central and I ordered the chicken. It was delicious, but I remember thinking, "I could so make something like this." This is my version of that dish, and may I say, it was moist and very flavorful and did not disappoint. Of course, I added my twist. It was so easy too! Here it is!
ROASTED CHICKEN WITH SUN-DRIED TOMATO PESTO
- 3 large chicken breasts (bone in and skin on)
- 1 cup sun-dried tomato pesto, divided (my was Trader Joes, but could use sundried tomatoes in oil diced fine)
- Poultry seasoning
- fresh cracked pepper
- drizzle of EVOO
- 1/2 c. feta
Sun-Dried Tomato Pasta
Use tiny cooked pasta or cous-cous and mix with some sun-dried tomato pesto. I minced a few sun-dried tomatoes packed in oil and drizzled the pastina with the oil from the jar, good sprinkle of garlic and a handful of parm. cheese. I had leftover pastina, but was going to do the same with cous-cous. Serve the chicken over it! So simple!
