  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 cups 3/4-inch pieces cooked chicken breast
  • 1 can (14.5 oz) Muir Glen™ organic no salt added diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (8 oz) Muir Glen™ organic tomato sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano leaves
  • 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup pitted Kalamata olives, quartered lengthwise

    Meanwhile, in 12-inch nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion; cook 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender. Add zucchini and garlic; cook 2 minutes. Stir in chicken, tomatoes, tomato sauce, oregano and basil. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until zucchini is tender and mixture is hot. Stir in olives.

    Pour chicken mixture over pasta. Top with feta cheese; toss to coat.

  • We’ve replaced ingredients with great-tasting alternatives to create better-for-you recipes that are just as yummy as the originals.
  • If you want to reduce the cost of this recipe, sliced black olives can be substituted for the Kalamata.
  • Prepare the veggies and cook the chicken ahead of time; cover and refrigerate until you’re ready to make the recipe.
