Ingredients

1 Tbsp
flour
1/2 tsp
freshly ground black pepper
1/4 tsp
salt
1/2 lb
skinless, boneless, chicken breasts, cut into 1/2" wide strips
1 Tbsp
olive oil
5 clove
garlic, slivered
2
zucchini, halved lengthwise & thinly sliced
1
red bell pepper, diced
1/4 c
red wine vinegar
1
tomato, cut into thin strips
3 Tbsp
snipped fresh dill
3/4 tsp
dried oregano
2 Tbsp
light sour cream
8 oz
radiatore pasta
3 oz
feta cheese, crumbled

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Start heating a large pot of water to boiling for the pasta. On a plate, combine the flour, 1/4 tsp. of the pepper, and salt. Dredge the chicken in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the oil until hot but not smoking, over medium heat. Add the chicken and cook, stirring frequently, until golden brown, about 4 minutes. With a slotted spoon, transfer to a plate.
2
Add the garlic, zucchini and bell pepper to the pan and cook, stirring frequently, until the bell pepper is tender, about 5 minutes. Sprinkle the vinegar over the vegetables. Stir in the tomato, 1/2 cup of water, dill, oregano, and remaining 1/4 tsp. of pepper.
3
Bring to a boil over medium high heat, reduce to a simmer, cover, and cook until the mixture is flavorful and slightly thickened, about 4 minutes. Add the chicken and cook, uncovered, until the chicken is cooked through, about 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat & stir in the sour cream.
4
Meanwhile, cook the radiatore in boiling water until just tender. Drain well. Transfer the chicken mixture to a large bowl, add the radiatore, and toss to combine. Add the feta cheese and toss again.
