I started the new year off with a promise to myself that I would eat healthier foods and I’m happy to report that I’m keeping said promise! Yippee for me!

In the past, after a long day of working at home, it would be so tempting to text my husband and have him swing through a drive-thru and grab something on his way home from work. That practice has come to a screeching halt.

I’m happy to report that I’m now whipping up meals in just a few minutes that are better for me, easy to make and easy to clean up afterward.



Head to Kroger (Or Your Favorite Grocery Store)

My daughter loves to cook and we enjoy shopping for groceries together. I always make sure I have a shopping list and a weekly menu in mind before heading to Kroger. The shopping list keeps me on point and the menu keeps me from wasting time thinking about what I’m going to cook for dinner.

Grilled Chicken Rotini with Olives & Artichokes

Today, I’m sharing one of my family’s very favorite meals – Grilled Chicken Rotini with Olives & Artichokes.  It only takes 10-15 minutes to make and it’s always a hit. This is a perfect meal for guests, too.

Grilled Chicken Rotini with Olives & Artichokes

To make Grilled Chicken Rotini with Olives & Artichokes, the first thing I do is get the water boiling for the pasta. I add a pinch of sea salt before adding the pasta.

Grilled Chicken Rotini Pasta

While the pasta is boiling (don’t forget to stir occasionally), heat the olive oil in a large skillet.  Add the minced garlic and stir for about a minute.

Add the black olives, artichoke hearts, and diced tomatoes to the skillet. Stir for another minute or two. Pour the mixture into a large bowl.

Tyson Grilled & Ready Chicken Breast Strips

I add the Tyson® Grilled & Ready® Chicken Breast Strips to the skillet and heat until warm. Because Tyson chicken breast strips are fully cooked, it takes no time at all to prepare my pasta dish. I also like the fact that they have no preservatives and are made with 100% natural ingredients.

Once the pasta is cooked, place the pasta in the bowl with the artichoke mixture and add 1/2 cup Wish-Bone® Italian Dressing. Toss gently.

Oh this looks really yummy. I love most any dish containing pasta and black olives, so I’m sure I would love this.

I love the convenience and taste of the WishBone dressing and Tyson chicken strips. Your dish looks and sounds amazing! I can’t wait to try it!

What a quick easy recipe. Looks delish! I too have been telling the hubs we need to eat healthier. For the most part, we are doing well except for the sweet tooth that we have. That gets us. But yes, every mom should look their utmost best for their daughter’s wedding. Keep up on the heatlthy eating side!

Those Tyson Grilled & Ready strips really do make meal planning so easy, especially for those long work days. Your recipe sounds yummy. My hubby would love those olives too! Pinning.

Alli January 15, 2016 - 9:23 am

Black olives are my favorite. Of course, I’ve never met an olive I didn’t love.

Heather | All Roads Lead to the Kitchen January 14, 2016 - 11:33 am

How exciting! I love how quick this meal is to put together, yet still has so much flavor and good stuff packed into it (plus, I’m a sucker for artichoke hearts).

Anosa January 14, 2016 - 11:45 am

Glad to hear you’re sticking to eating healthy, I have been unwell lately and I am so tempted to keep eating the junk food but I will resist. This pasta meal looks delicious

JanetGoingCrazy January 14, 2016 - 12:02 pm

This dish looks delicious. I would have to take off the olives, but everything else looks just like something my family would eat! [client]

I am loving everything about this Grilled Chicken Rotini with Olives & Artichokes dish! Rotini is one of my favorite pastas and I love that Tyson’s has chicken breast all ready for me to use! Would love to try to make this too!

Terri Beavers January 14, 2016 - 3:12 pm

We love anything with chicken and black olives in it. The grands are coming this weekend and I’ve been trying to figure out what to fix them for Saturday that they will all eat. You just solved my problem :).

Sharon Wong January 14, 2016 - 3:50 pm

This looks soo good! It seems very fast and easy to make as well. I am definitely going to try this over the weekend before going back to school haha. Thanks for sharing! 🙂

Liz Mays January 14, 2016 - 4:15 pm

I’d like to stop our habit of picking up drive-thru too. This looks like a delicious family meal and I’m loving the veggies.

Nicole January 14, 2016 - 10:28 pm

This looks so yummy, of course I’m reading this hungry ! I am a huge olive & artichoke lover though I never thought to put them together in a salad, great combo.

Jenn January 14, 2016 - 10:42 pm

Oh, yum. This looks fantastic. And so easy. I’m book marking this page to try soon.

Hannah January 15, 2016 - 1:11 am

This rotini looks amazing! I love that you added the veggies like olives. I’m definitely going to have to make this. I bet it would be great in the summer too!

Jeanine January 15, 2016 - 9:59 am

Gosh that looks incredible. I’ve never had artichokes before, so I’ll be honest that makes me nervous but when it looks this good, It can’t be too bad right? AMAZING.

Alli January 15, 2016 - 5:30 pm

Artichokes are so good – you have to try them at least once. 🙂

Dora Clemons January 15, 2016 - 3:21 pm

Hubby loves olives, but I can’t stand them. Do you know how this recipes tastes without them? It looks delicious!! I just can’t get past the taste of them.

Alli January 15, 2016 - 5:29 pm

You could definitely leave the olives out. My husband doesn’t love them as much as I do. Replace them with a veggie of your choice.

Dora Clemons January 16, 2016 - 11:03 pm

Awesome!! I’ll try that 🙂

Nancy @ Whispered Inspirations January 15, 2016 - 8:40 pm

This looks incredible! WOW. That chicken, I love how chunky it is.

Dina Demarest January 16, 2016 - 1:33 am

This looks amazing. I think I have everything I need to make it so I don’t even need to go to the supermarket. I am making this tomorrow!

Lisa Rios January 16, 2016 - 7:35 am

Grilled Chicken is always a favorite at my home with my husband & kids & this looks like a yummy recipe to try out during this winter. I just love how the combination looks perfect & creative enough to make you feel so hungry just seeing those pictures.

Janna January 17, 2016 - 3:37 am

omg that looks so yummy! ive been looking for new recipes to cook for this week, so thank you for this! 🙂

Sarah Holstein January 21, 2016 - 11:28 am

I can’t wait to try this, but was wondering, do you drain the artichokes first?

Alli January 21, 2016 - 12:40 pm

Yes, drain them first. I should have added that part to the recipe. 🙂
