Makes 4 servings

Ingredients
• 6 ounces bow tie pasta
• 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes, snipped into bits
• 1/4 cup boiling water
• 1 teaspoon plus 1 tablespoon Canola oil
• 6 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut into 12 to 15 chunks
• Salt and ground black pepper to taste
• 1/2 green bell pepper, chopped
• 2 cloves garlic, minced
• 1 cup chicken broth
• 1 teaspoon Italian herb seasoning
• 2 teaspoons cornstarch
• 2 tablespoons cold water
• 6 ounces grated Cabot 50% Reduced Fat Cheddar (about 1 1/2 cups)

1.
Cook pasta according to package directions, about 10 minutes.

3. Heat nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 teaspoon of oil, tilting to coat. Add chicken and sauté until browned on all sides and no longer pink in center, 3 to 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, transfer to plate and set aside.

5. Dissolve cornstarch in cold water. Add slowly to simmering broth mixture, stirring until thickened; cook for 1 minute. Stir in cheese, basil and reserved chicken; cook just until cheese is just melted.
