Bowtie Pasta with Feta and Lemon Pepper Chicken

Serves: 6-8 servings

  • 1½ - 2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts or tenders
  • 1 lb. bowtie pasta
  • broccoli, cauliflower and carrots (I like to use those steam in the bag fresh kind)
  • feta cheese 6-8oz, crumbled
  • lemon pepper
  • 3-4 Tbs butter
  • 1½ – 2 cups half and half, warmed for a minute or two in the microwave
  1. Sprinkle the chicken on both sides with lemon pepper and grill it.
  2. While the chicken is grilling start the pasta cooking.
  3. Steam the vegetables in the microwave, or add to the pasta during the last few minutes of cooking.
  4. Drain pasta.
  5. Combine pasta and veggies.
  6. Add the butter and warmed half & half to the pasta. Stir in the feta.
  7. Slice finished chicken in thin strips. Serve on top of pasta.
  8. Serve with additional lemon pepper, if desired.

Thanks for sharing, and I love how you show the ingredients-that helps so much. My family likes bow tie pasta so I will have to try this! I used bow tie pasta with tuna several years ago from a great recipe. I can’t find the recipe now…any suggestions?

    • I have a bowtie pasta salad recipe with tuna in it. It also has artichoke, capers, green onion and some other ingredients. Do you remember any of the other ingredients in your recipe?
