Ingredients
  

  • 1 lb Boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into bite sized pieces
  • Member’s Mark™ Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper, to taste
  • 3 tbsp Bertolli® Extra Virgin Olive Oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup Yellow onion, diced
  • 2 tbsp Weber® Garlic, Citrus and Basil Seasoning
  • 2 cups Member’s Mark™ Organic Chicken Broth
  • 3/4 cup Water
  • 3 tbsp Pompeian® Balsamic Vinegar
  • 10 oz Barilla® Classic Blue Box Farfalle Pasta
  • 1-1/2 cups Sunset® Grape Tomatoes, halved
  • 1/2 cup BelGioioso® Pre-Sliced Fresh Mozzarella
  • Fresh basil leaves (optional)
  • 1/4 cup Member's Mark™ Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt (optional)

Instructions
 

  • Season cut up pieces of chicken with Member’s Mark™ Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper
  • Heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil in a 12-inch lidded pan or skillet over medium high heat. Add the chicken to the pan. Sauté the chicken until it's cooked all the way through, approximately 5 to 7 minutes, then pour the chicken out of the skillet and onto a plate.
  • Add the remaining teaspoon of olive oil to the pan, then add in the onion and sauté for 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Add in the Weber® Garlic, Citrus and Basil, Member’s Mark™ Organic Chicken Broth, water, balsamic vinegar, and Member’s Mark™ Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper, to taste.
  • Use a wooden spoon to scrape all the bits off the bottom of the pan, stir together, and bring the mixture to a boil. Once boiling, add in the pasta and stir. You want the liquid to cover the pasta completely, so add more chicken broth if needed.
  • Reduce the heat to medium or medium-low, cover the pan with a lid, and boil until fairly tender. Stir occasionally, cooking the pasta for about 8 to 9 minutes.
  • Add the tomatoes over the top of the pasta without stirring, then cover with the lid and allow to boil 4 to 5 minutes longer, until the tomatoes have softened and the pasta is tender. There should be a little liquid left after it's finished cooking, this will become part of the sauce. If needed, add more broth.
  • Add the chicken, stir together, and pour into a serving dish.
  • Top the pasta with the mozzarella cheese and season with more Weber® Garlic, Citrus and Basil Seasoning and Member’s Mark™ Sea Salt and Ground Black Pepper, if needed. You can also add some fresh basil leaves. Cover pan with the lid and remove from heat.
  • Let the pasta rest for several minutes, allowing the mozzarella to melt and the sauce to thicken.
  • If desired, mix in 1/4 cup of plain non-fat Greek yogurt to make the pasta creamier.
