Ingredients:  
1 lb. favorite pasta shape (we use thin spaghetti)
3-4 pieces thin sliced chicken breast
1/2 jar sliced sundried tomatoes in olive oil
small amount of favorite olives (Ava prefers the canned black olives, sliced, but leslie prefers pitted calamata)
1/4 cup chicken broth (low sodium)
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/4 cup reserve liquid from pasta water
4-6 cloves garlic
salt
pepper
dried basil
oregano

Directions:
Directions:
Set water to boil for pasta as per package directions. Meanwhile season chicken pieces with salt and pepper on both sides. Cut chicken into strips or chunks, as you wish. Slice olives as necessary (or not) and mince garlic. Heat large skillet on medium high heat and add 3 tbps. olive oil. When oil is hot, add minced garlic, browning only slightly. Add sliced chicken. Season chicken with basil and oregano as desired. Saute 3-4 minutes, browning slightly. Remove chicken from pan and set aside.

Add white wine to deglaze the pan. Add chicken broth and bring to boil. Reduce by a little less than half. Lower heat and add sundried tomatoes and olives. Add chicken back to pan and simmer a few more minutes so that everything is heated through. Add some of the reserved cooking water to pan to create more liquid, if needed.

Meanwhile, drain pasta and add to skillet for a couple of minutes to allow pasta to absorb some of the flavors. Serve with Parmesan cheese.

This dish is great alongside an arugala salad! Also, some friends have made this dish and added other types of vegetables to it, like artichoke hearts, spinach, etc.
