Ingredients
1 pkg. PERDUE® FIT & EASY® Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breast Tenderloins
(cut into strips)
1 pkg. (1 pound) ziti
1 egg
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup unsalted butter or margarine, divided
2 large onions, thinly sliced
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon oregano
3/4 cup grated white cheese*, divided or grated mozzarella or Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste
3 tablespoons capers
Instructions
1 Cook ziti according to package directions. Drain. Place in large bowl; cover and reserve.

TIP: *White cheese (soft or hard) can be found in the refrigerated section in some supermarkets or in Latino markets.  
2 Meanwhile, beat egg, tomato paste and milk together in a small bowl; reserve.
3 Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large pot over medium heat.  Cook chicken strips, turning occasionally, until brown on all sides, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove chicken from pot and mix with ziti in bowl; cover and reserve. 
4 Add remaining 2 tablespoons butter, onions and garlic in the pot.  Cook until brown, about 2 to 3 minutes. Sprinkle flour over onions, stirring constantly, until lightly brown, 1 to 2 minutes.  Add egg mixture, stirring constantly, until well blended.  Stir in oregano, 1/2 cup of the grated white cheese and salt and pepper to taste. 
5 Reduce heat and simmer until mixture starts to thicken, about 3 to 5 minutes.  Stir in reserved chicken, macaroni and capers.  Cook until heated through, stirring occasionally, about 2 to 3 minutes. 
6 Serve with remaining 1/4 cup grated white cheese sprinkled on top.
