 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
      3/4   lb           Boneless chicken breasts
    1 1/2   ts           Olive oil
      1/2   c            Green onion -- chopped
    3                    Garlic cloves -- crushed
   28       oz           Ital. tomatoes -- with juice
   12                    Fresh basil leaves -- chopped
    1                    Can Pitted ripe olives -- drain
      1/2   ts           Hot pepper flakes -- crushed
   10       oz           Penne -- or other tube pasta
    3       oz           Part-skim mozzarella -- diced
    1       tb           Fresh parsley -- chopped
      1/2   c            Fresh Parmesan -- grated
 
   Earlier in the day, add enough water to the skinned
   chicken to cover it. Poach chicken in simmering water
   (uncovered) until chicken is no longer pink. This will
   take about 8 minutes. Allow chicken to cool in
   poaching liquid. (I put it in the refrig. rather than
   leave it at room temp. Cooling it in the liquid makes
   it more tender) Later, remove chicken from poaching
   liquid and chop it into small or bite-size pieces.
   Save the poaching liquid to add to the water you're
   going to cook the pasta in. In large non-stick pan,
   cook the onion and garlic in heated olive oil until
   softened. Add hot pepper flakes and tomatoes and
   juice. Cook about 30 minutes over med. heat until
   sauce thickens. Cook penne in poaching liquid with
   additional water as needed. Combine chicken with the
   sauce mixture in serving bowl. Add parsley and cheese.
   Sprinkle with parmesan and serve immediately. Judy
