  • 1. Cook the chicken covered in a lightly oiled frying pan until the juices run clear. Cooking times will depend on the thickness of the chicken. As a guide, tenderloins will take about 3 minutes each side and breast 6 – 9 minutes each side.

  • 2. Cook the penne to packet directions. Drain well then return to the saucepan.

  • 3. Cut the tomatoes into quarters, removing the stem end. Heat the pasta sauce. Cut the tenderloins in half lengthwise or the breast in half lengthwise then into 1 centimetre slices.

  • 4. Add the tomatoes, chicken and thyme to the penne and mix gently. Heat for 1 - 2 minutes to heat through. Place half the mixture in a serving bowl and spoon over half the hot pasta sauce. Top with the remaining penne mixture and dollops of the pasta sauce.

  • 5. Sprinkle over the cheese and garnish with basil or basil mint.
