Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil.

  2. Add 2 1/2 tsp of salt and penne to the boiling water. Cook according to package directions.

  3. Sprinkle the chicken with the remaining 1/2 tsp of salt and the oregano.

  4. Cut the chicken across the short side to create strips.

  5. Heat the olive oil in a wide skillet over high heat.

  6. When the oil is hot, add the chicken.

  7. Spread it out into a single layer.

  8. Then add the sliced peppers.

  9. Cook without stirring for about 5 min - you would like the chicken to brown a little bit. If it seems as if it will burn, stir it.

  10. Add the salsa, stir and cook for about 5 more min or until the chicken is cooked through.

  11. Remove the skillet from the heat.

  12. Stir in the sour cream.

  13. Spoon cooked penne into a serving bowl or onto plates.

  14. Top with the chicken mixture.

  15. Sprinkle with chopped cilantro, if desired, and a little of the shredded cheese.
