Artichoke Olive Chicken Bake
We’ve already sampled spelt rotini a couple days ago, and now we’ve moved on to Eden Foods Kamut Spirals. The Product Review Program at Recipe4Living has really been booming! This product is freshly milled at a family farm in the U.S. Kamut is an ancient grain that was revived by an organic farmer in the ‘40s. Not only does it contain tons of protein, it’s plump and really smooth! Kamut spirals are 100% whole grain, high in fiber and protein and have no salt added. Check out the recipe I used after the jump!
My mom and I decided to go in a different direction for this rotini (spirals). Instead of a cold pasta salad, we wanted something warm and comforting. What resulted was a type of chicken casserole, combined with the pasta and tons of veggies. It ended up being really delicious, and I made sure to take leftovers to work for the next two days!
* 1 pkg. Eden Foods Kamut Spirals
* 1 Tbs. olive oil
* 1 med. onion, chopped
* 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
* 2 C. shredded cooked chicken
* 1 14-oz. can Italian style diced tomatoes
* 1 14 oz. can artichoke hearts, drained
* 1 6-oz. can sliced black olives, drained
* 1 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
* 2 C. shredded mozzarella cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare pasta according to package. Drain. Heat oil in large skillet over medium heat, until hot. Add onions and bell pepper, cook and stir 1 minute. Add pasta, chicken, tomatoes, artichoke, olives and Italian seasoning. Mix until blended. Place half of chicken mixture in prepared dish, sprinkle with half of cheese. Top with remaining chicken mixture and cheese. Bake covered in a 2-qt. casserole dish (sprayed with non stick cooking spray) in the oven for 35 minutes.
My mom and I found this recipe in an older cookbook. We had a few adjustments, and were really pleased with the results. Surprisingly, the artichoke was the star of this dish. The kamut spirals fit in really well, and they didn’t fall apart like some wheat pasta usually does in warm dishes. Overall, I really enjoyed this dish. My mom and I will definitely make it again!
Eden Foods really knows what it’s doing. Spelt Rotini was delicious. I’d love to try it again in a simple pasta dish with a normal tomato sauce. In this casserole, it rocked! The pasta is healthy, and organic, which is another plus!
