Ingredients:

  • 8 ounces of chickpea pasta
  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon of black pepper
  • 1 cup of cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1/4 cup of fresh basil, chopped
  • 1/4 cup of grated Parmesan cheese

Instructions:

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the chickpea pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, season the chicken breasts with garlic powder, paprika, salt, and black pepper.
  3. In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the chicken breasts and cook for about 6-8 minutes per side, or until cooked through and no longer pink in the center. Remove the chicken from the skillet and let it rest for a few minutes before slicing it into thin strips.
  4. In the same skillet, add the cherry tomatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes, until they start to soften.
  5. Add the cooked chickpea pasta to the skillet with the tomatoes and toss to combine. Cook for an additional 2-3 minutes to heat through.
  6. Remove the skillet from heat and stir in the fresh basil.
  7. Divide the chickpea pasta and tomato mixture into serving plates. Top with sliced chicken and sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
