This easy, low-fat recipe has great Mediterranean flavors (lemon, tarragon, oregano, artichoke hearts) and really leaves you satisfied. For company, I've thinned the sauce with some chicken broth or white wine and served it over angel hair pasta for a more formal presentation. I created this because I wanted a recipe that uses the items I have in my pantry every day. This and a salad and you are done! You can use mostaccioli or another dry short pasta in place of the pipette, if desired.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Place chicken breasts into skillet, cover the skillet with a lid, and cook until browned on both sides, 3 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer chicken to a plate to rest.

  • Stir browned chicken, artichoke hearts, evaporated milk, cream of mushroom soup, chicken broth, lemon juice, oregano, tarragon, red pepper flakes, salt, and black pepper together in a large, deep skillet; bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover the skillet with a lid, and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the center and the juices run clear, about 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil; add pipette pasta and cook, stirring occasionally, until almost tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup of pasta water. Stir pasta and reserved pasta water into chicken and sauce mixture. Simmer until pasta is tender yet still firm to the bite and sauce is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Slice chicken breasts, ladle sauce and chicken into bowls, and top with Parmesan cheese.
