How to make it
- First, soak the cut-up sun-dried tomatoes. Reserve all the soaking water. Set aside.
- For the marinade, combine the vinegar, 2 T of the tomato-soaking water, 2 T of Kalamata olive brine, 2T olive oil, the chopped onion, oregano, pepper, and one of the mashed roasted garlic cloves. Marinate the chicken for about thirty minutes.
- Cook the chicken in its marinade in a large heavy skillet. When the chicken is nearly cooked, toss in the bell pepper and garlic, continue cooking, turning frequently. Meanwhile combine the remaining tomato-soaking water with enough plain water to cook the pasta. Add a pinch of salt and bring to a boil in a large pan, add pasta. When pasta is al dente, drain and toss with a dash of olive oil. Add the chicken, peppers, and garlic and all remaining ingredients. Toss lightly and serve immediately with a salad of cucumbers and tomatoes. A Sauvignon Blanc is very nice with this.
- I change this recipe depending on my taste at the moment as well as what I have on hand. It’s equally good with fresh tomatoes and “regular” black olive, but the taste is very different.
