For the chicken:

– 1/2 cup brown rice flour or whole-wheat flour

– 2 tablespoons olive oil


For the noodles:

– 3 carrots, peeled

– 4 zucchini, ends cut off

– 3 summer squash, ends cut off

– Salt and pepper to taste

– 1 tablespoon olive oil


For the bread:

1. To make the Sauce: In a medium sauté pan heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic, basil, and oregano and sauté for about 3 minutes, or until fragrant. Add 1 pound of the chopped tomatoes and the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, add the sun-dried tomatoes, salt, and pepper and cook about 20 minutes. About 10 minutes before serving, add the remaining tomatoes and cook until softened.


2. To make the Chicken: One at a time, lay the chicken breasts between wax paper and pound out to ¼-inch thickness. On a plate, combine the brown rice flour, salt, and pepper. Lightly dredge the chicken in the flour mixture. In a nonstick sauté pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the chicken and sauté, flipping, until cooked through and light brown.


3. To make the Noodles: Using a mandoline fitted with the appropriate blade attachment, slice the veggies into long thin strips. Season with salt and pepper. In a large nonstick pan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the carrots and sauté for about 4 minutes, or until they start to soften. Add the remaining veggies and sauté 4 minutes more, or until they are all al dente.


4. To make the Bread: Preheat the oven to 350°F. In a small bowl, combine the olive oil, garlic, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper. Place the bread slices on a large baking sheet and brush lightly with the olive oil mixture. Toast in the oven for 15 minutes, or until golden.


5. To serve: Create a bed of noodles on each plate, top with chicken, and drizzle with sauce. Serve with the garlic bread.
