Tomato & basil chicken spaghetti

Tomatoes are a rich source of anti-inflammatory lycopene. For even greater benefits, swap your usual spaghetti for courgetti – either homemade with a spiralizer or bought from a supermarket.

Method

Place a pan on a medium heat and add rapeseed oil.

Season the chicken and fry until golden brown, then remove from the pan and set aside.

Add the onions, garlic, thyme, oregano and chilli to the pan, and fry until slightly caramelised.

Now add the tomato puree and cook for three minutes.

Pour in the white wine and reduce by two-thirds.

Add the chopped tomatoes, chicken stock, basil and the fried chicken. Bring the sauce to the boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 25 minutes, or until the vegetables are cooked and the chicken is tender.

Cook the spaghetti or courgetti, drain, top with the sauce and serve, garnished with basil leaves.
