This recipe was on pinterest and I really wanted to try it because of how pretty it looked. It was surprisingly easy to make – (I had never really cooked chicken in a skillet before). I am really loving cooking with herbs (basil and oregano) because of how wonderful it makes the kitchen smell. Nothing says spring like a light pasta dish, some herbs, and white wine. 
 















Ingredients 
2 skinless chicken breast halves, diced in 1 inch cubes
  • cooking spray
  • 1/2 tsp each of dried oregano and dries basil
  • kosher salt and fresh pepper
  • 8 oz spaghetti 
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
  • 6 cloves garlic, smashed and coarsely chopped
  • 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 tbsp chopped fresh basil

Directions: 

    Bring a large pot of salted water to boil.

    Season chicken generously with salt, pepper, oregano and basil. Heat a large skillet on high heat. When hot, spray with oil and add chicken. Cook about 3-4 minutes, until no longer pink. Remove chicken and set aside.

    Add pasta and cook according to package directions. Reserve about 1/2 cup pasta water before draining.

    While pasta cooks, add olive oil to skillet on high heat. Add garlic and sauté until golden brown (do not burn). Add tomatoes, salt and pepper and reduce heat to medium-low. Sauté about 4-5 minutes. When pasta is drained, add pasta to tomatoes and toss well. If pasta seems too dry, add some of the reserved pasta water. Add fresh basil and chicken and toss well. Serve and top with good grated cheese.
