• 5 tablespoons olive oil
• 4 small chicken breasts - bone in, skin on

- oregano
- basil
- crushed red pepper
• 1/2 sweet onion diced
• 2-3 cloves garlic minced
• 2 cups chicken stock (or 14 oz. can)
• 1 cup dry white wine
• 1/2 red pepper diced
• 1 yellow squash or zucchini cut up
• 1-2 broccoli crowns cut up
• 1 lb Rigatoni pasta (or other larger - heartier style pasta)

Heat 3 Tbls oil in dutch oven. Season both sides of all chicken breasts with the seasonings. Place chiken breasts meat side down in dutch oven and brown. Turn the chicken pieces over and add onions around them. Cook until onions are soft. Add garlic and cook 2 more minutes. Add chicken stock and wine. Put lid on dutch oven and place in 250 degree oven. Cook for 1 & 1/2 – 2 hours.

Remove dutch oven from oven. Place chicken pieces onto a cutting board. Add the pasta and broccoli mixture to the garlic sauce. Let it sit while you remove the meat from the chicken bones and cut it up. Discard the bones and skin. Add to pasta and toss to coat.
