    • 2 skinless chicken breast halves, diced in 2cm cubes
    • cooking spray
    • 1/2 tsp each of dried oregano and dried basil
    • salt and pepper
    • 225g spaghetti
    • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
    • 6 cloves garlic, smashed and coarsely chopped
    • 4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
    • 4 tbsp chopped fresh basil

  • Method

Bring a large pot of salted water to boil.

Season chicken generously with salt, pepper, oregano and basil. Heat a large pan 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.
