Chicken & Bacon in a Rich Cherry Tomato Sauce

Dinner doesn’t come much easier or tastier. This is a regular in my home as it is really quick and easy to do plus I usually have all the ingredients already.

I advise getting all the ingredients ready and have them to hand before you start cooking.

Use a tin of regular chopped tomatoes if you can’t find tins of cherry tomatoes. I found them in Dunnes, some Supervalu stores and in M&S stores though expect to pay a premium if you get them in M&S.

Ingredients

2 chicken breasts or 8 to 10 mini fillets. Cut into small cubes.
4 smoked rashers, cut into small pieces
6 garlic cloves, finely chopped or crushed
4 - 6 spring onions, finely sliced
1 pepper of any colour, finely diced
1 tin cherry tomatoes or 1 tin chopped tomatoes
350 - 400g pasta of your choice, I used spaghetti.
Fresh parsley and fresh basil or 1 tbsp dried oregano. Dried basil is terrible. Roughly chopped
Fresh ground black pepper from a mill
Fresh Parmesan cheese, grated
1 tbsp good quality oil

Instructions

1
Prepare all the ingredients as described in the ingredients list. Cook the pasta as per the packet then, when cooked, cool under cold running water. Set to one side.
2
Heat the oil in a pan then add the chicken and bacon, cook until the chicken starts to brown in places then add the peppers, onions and garlic and cook for 5 minutes more.
3
Add the tomatoes then the fresh, roughly chopped, herbs and a few twists of a pepper mill.
4
Add the cooked pasta and stir well. You can add the cheese now and mix it in or serve it on top of the dish when serving.
5
Serve when the pasta heats fully, about 5 minutes.
