Ingredients

8 medium
roma tomatoes chopped
2 large

1 can(s)

1/4 c
butter
2-3 pinch

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Dice up tomatoes, set aside. Dice up the chicken breasts, set aside. Peel and mince garlic cloves, set aside. Wash cilantro, chop and set aside. Start water boiling in a large stew pot. Put in noodles.
2
Saute garlic in butter and a bit of olive oil. Add chicken, salt and pepper to taste, slightly undercook the chicken as it will be in a bit longer. Now add the chicken broth, chilies, and tomatoes. Cook just for a minute or two so the tomatoes are warm, but not mushy, ditto on the chilies. Take off the stove.
3
Drain linguini noodles. Add the first pan of ingredients, throw in diced cilantro, lightly mix up entire pot. Serve with crumbled feta cheese over the top -- heavy on the cheese!

You'll find this is so speedy and delicious, you'll be making this for special dinners. We think this is a drop dead killer dinner.
PS serve with libations like Coronas and a slice of lime.
