  RECIPE TITLE "Greek Ziti Recipe"
Source: Quick from Scratch - Pasta
recipe courtesy of Cooking.com

yields Serves 4time --- difficultyeasy

You'll find an interesting technique here that guarantees juicy chicken: The boneless meat is steamed to moist perfection in hot chicken broth – off the heat.

WINE RECOMMENDATION:
The acidity of the feta cheese and the lemon juice in this dish will work best with a light, fruity, just plain gulpable red wine. If you're feeling adventurous, try a Greek one such as Demestica.

  RECIPE INGREDIENTS

1 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
2 teaspoons dried oregano
3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 1 pound in all), cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/2 pound ziti
4 ounces feta cheese, crumbled (about 3/4 cup)
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper
3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved

  RECIPE METHOD

In a large frying pan, simmer the chicken broth and the oregano until 1/2 cup of liquid remains in the pan, about 4 minutes. Stir in the chicken cubes, cover the pan, and remove it from the heat. Let the chicken steam in the hot broth until just done, about 8 minutes.

In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the ziti until just done, about 13 minutes. Drain the pasta and toss it with the chicken mixture, the feta, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and parsley. Stir until the cheese is completely melted. Toss in the cherry tomatoes.

The Quick Recipe
The Quick Recipe 2004 James Beard Award Winner for the General Category The Quick Recipe is the result of thousands of hours of testing to determine the techniques that deliver big flavor in less time--all from scratch. Starting with building block recipes for basic quick cooking techniques such as sautéing, grilling, or stir-frying, the editors of Cook's Illustrated developed more than 300 flavorful recipes, including honey-glazed pork loin with fennel and carrots, lemon pudding cake, stir-fried chicken with green beans in spicy orange sauce, and 30-minute tart tatin. Each recipe requires less than 60 minutes (many less than 30) from ingredient prep and assembly through cooking and/or cooling, and most recipes require 10 or fewer ingredients. In addition to developing quick recipes that do not sacrifice taste, the editors have identified supermarket ingredients that save time without sacrificing flavor. More than 200 illustrations provide shortcuts for techniques, including shaping biscuits and scones, stuffing chicken breasts, or seeding tomatoes. All 309 of the recipes in this 464-page, hardcover cookbook are new to The Best Recipe Series, and 85 have never appeared in Cook's magazine.
