Ingredients

  • 1 lb uncooked pasta (long, thin noodles are preferred)
  • 1 lb chicken breasts seasoned*
  • 1/3 cup olive oil
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1 tsp kosher sea salt
  • 3/4 cup pearl mozzarella
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

Instructions

  • Bring a large stock pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to the package's directions. Remove from heat, drain and set aside.
  • Meanwhile, grill or cook the chicken until it reaches an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Remove from heat, tent with foil for at least 5 minutes.
  • In a medium saucepan set over medium heat, add olive oil and garlic. Cook for 1 minute, then reduce heat to medium-low and continue cooking for additional 4-5 minutes or until the garlic becomes fragrant and very lightly browned. Remove from the heat and stir in salt and pepper.
  • Add garlic oil mixture to the pasta, then the bruschetta mixture, toss to combine. Serve in a large bowl or on a platter. Add pearl mozzarella and chicken on top. Drizzle balsamic over chicken, serve immediately.

Notes

* I prefer seasoning mine with a blend of salt, pepper, paprika, garlic powder, dried basil, and dried parsley.
