Here’s a main course my whole family likes, including the kids! Similar to a restaurant favorite, it uses canned artichokes and olives and a jar of sun-dried tomatoes. It’s so simple, I often leave the ingredients on the counter for my husband to fix. –Beth Washington, Ayer, Massachusetts

I modified the original recipe for this chicken salad to make it healthier. The ingredients are so flavorful that my changes didn't take away from the taste. This refreshing salad never lasts long at our house. Even if I double the recipe, my husband asks, "Why didn't you make more?"

"I often put together this yummy chicken and pasta combination for my daughter and her family," writes Donna V'Dovec of Veradale, Washington. "All she has to do is heat and serve it with a salad or vegetable for a filling meal that tastes great."
"We have three children and a busy life in the country," relates Anne Drouin of Dunnville, Ontario. "So I appreciate not having to dirty extra pots and pans when I make this one-skillet dish of chicken and pasta in a light tomato sauce."
Savory seasonings add zip to these moist chicken strips tossed with pasta. "Every time I fix this dish, the kids ask for more," reports Kathy Kirkland of Denham Springs, Louisiana. "It goes well with steamed broccoli and glazed carrots to make a quick and colorful meal."
