Fire Roasted Tomatoes and Chicken over Ziti

  • 8oz Ziti Pasta
  • 1lb boneless skinless chicken-breast halves
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onions
  • 6 oz already sliced button mushrooms
  • Salt and black pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
  • 1 ca (14.5 oz) fire roasted diced tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (optional)
  • Parmesan cheese, optional garnish

cooking note: wine adds body and zest to the sauce.  but if you don’t or can’t have any then leave it out.  always cook pasta to package directions.

  1. cut chicken into roughly 1/2 inch chunks.  Heat oil in a 12 inch non-stick skillet, over medium heat.  Add onion, mushrooms and chicken.  Salt and pepper lightly.
  2. Cook, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink, about 6 minutes.
  3. Add the garlic and Italian seasoning.  Cook and stir for 30 seconds.  Add tomatoes with juices and wine.  Bring to a boil.  Boil stirring occasionally until sauce is thick, about 5 minutes.

Serve over hot, drained pasta, topping with Parmesan cheese if desired.

Basic Healthy Grilling Tips

1.  Cube or slice meat into smaller portions to speed cook time, SIZE MATTERS.  Or, you can use a quick-cooking option such as shrimp or fish for your meat.

2.  The faster foods are cooked, the less likely they are to develop dangerous charring.  THE SHORTER THE COOK TIME, THE BETTER.

3.  Move your food to a cooler part of the grill while flare ups simmer.

4.  Reduce your exposure to carcinogenic compounds.  GRILL SOMETHING OTHER THAN MEAT. Opt for low or no-protein peaches, plums, tomatoes, eggplant, corn or breads.

5.  You want to avoid burning but not rip the meat apart.  FLIP AT THE RIGHT TIME. Give it a gentle tug; its ready to flip when it comes loose without pulling.

6.  Keep your grill rack spick-and-span to prevent other bits from causing flare-ups.  CLEAN THAT GRILLING MACHINE!!
