On the table in 25mins

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 chicken breasts, thinly sliced
  • Salt & black pepper to taste
  • 1 bunch of asparagus, trimmed
  • 400g penne pasta, or pasta of your choice
  • 350g jar Sacla’ Whole Cherry Tomato with Basil Sauce
  • 125g Goat’s cheese, roughly crumbled

Method

  1. Cut the asparagus into bite sized pieces, season well and toss with half the olive oil. Heat a griddle pan over high heat and add the asparagus. Cook for a few minutes, until lightly charred, then turn and cook the other side. Remove and set to one side.
  2. Toss the chicken in the remaining oil and season well. Place on the griddle pan and cook for 4-6 minutes until char lines appear on the underside and the chicken comes away from the pan easily. Turn, and cook the other side until cooked through.
  3. While the chicken is cooking, add the pasta to a pan of boiling salted water. Cook as per pack instructions and drain. Add the Tomato and Basil Sauce and asparagus to the pasta and mix together.
  4. Serve topped with the chicken and Goat’s cheese.
