  • 2 small red bell peppers, thinly sliced
  • 2 shallots, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • Ready In

  1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water until just tender, 8 to 10 minutes or according to package directions. Drain and rinse under cold water until cooled. Set aside.
  2. Heat 2 teaspoons oil in a wok or large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chicken and saute until no longer pink inside, 2 to 4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil to the pan. Add peppers, shallots and garlic, and saute until the peppers are tender-crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Add to the reserved chicken.
  4. Add broth, vinegar and rosemary to the pan and bring to a boil. Add artichokes and the reserved pasta and cook until heated through, 2 to 3 minutes. Return the reserved chicken mixture to the pan and toss with the pasta. Taste and adjust seasoning and sprinkle with pine nuts. Serve warm.
  • Tip: To toast pine nuts: Place in a small dry skillet and cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until fragrant and lightly browned, 2 to 4 minutes.

Rosemary? This would have been better without the rosemary. We also didn't use pine nuts. But was disappointed because it sounded really good. (I hope I am not hurting anyone's feelings posting this. Perhaps if you are a person who loves rosemary this will work for you.) Pros: Serving size was filling, Cons: Rosemary

I am a very inexperienced cook and I was still able to make this without much help. I ended up not using chicken, shallots, or pine nuts and did use a lot more time, but it still turned out great. As a college student, I survive off leftovers and it tastes just a good (if not better) cold.

My wife just came home and ate this dish that I prepared and It is the first recipe off the internet that she told me to keep and make again! She also said that I could leave the pine nuts out. For the price of the nuts she said that it wasn't worth it to have them. They didn't hurt the dish or really help it that much! Overall good dish!!
