  1. Cook the pasta according to packet instructions. Drain.

  3. Sauté the onion and mushrooms, in batches, in the same pan. Return the chicken with the tomatoes, cooked pasta and the jar of ready-made tomato pasta sauce. Serve with baby herbs sprinkled over.

Frying the chicken breast whole and then slicing it keeps it moist and tender.
