    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil and stir in the pasta. Cook 8 to 10 minutes, until al dente, and drain.
    2. Heat 3 tablespoons olive oil in a frypan over medium heat. Whisk together the egg and water in a bowl. Place breadcrumbs in a separate bowl. Dip chicken pieces first into the egg mixture then into the breadcrumbs to coat. Place coated chicken pieces in the frypan and cook 5 minutes on each side, or until coating is golden brown and juices run clear. Drain on paper towels.
    3. Heat remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a separate frypan over medium heat. Mix in garlic, onion, green capsicum, red capsicum, yellow capsicum and mushrooms. Cook and stir until vegetables are tender.
    4. In a large bowl, toss the pasta, chicken and vegetables with the Greek dressing. Serve topped with tomatoes and Parmesan cheese.

    This was excellent! I did make some, minor changes. We are usually trying to cut back on carbs and fat thus I wanted to avoid the breaded coating and frying. I used boneless chicken breasts that had been marinating two days in Good Season's Italian salad dressing mix. I cut in small pieces and sauteed in a little olive oil until cooked through. I also used a lower carb, high protein pasta, Barilla. They didn't have bow ties so I used rotini. We all loved this and though I had increased the amount served to 8 for my family of 5 and a guest, there wasn't a bit left.  -  13 May 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was wonderful, although I changed the vegetables to fresh tomatoes and zucchini from my garden. Also added homemade greek salad dressing instead of store bought. Great recipe in salad dresings link works wonderfully!  -  28 Sep 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
