Instructions

  1. Combine the chicken, lemon zest and juice, crushed garlic and half of the basil in a small bowl. Season well and set to one side to marinate.
  2. Cook the pasta to pack instructions until al dente. Drain and keep warm.
  3. Heat a large nonstick frying pan over a medium-high heat and mist with cooking spray. Cook the chicken for 5 minutes, until cooked through. Remove from the pan and set aside.
  4. To make the sauce, mist the pan with a little more cooking spray, add the onion and cook for 5 minutes, adding water to prevent it burning if necessary. Add the garlic and chilli and cook for 2 minutes, then add the tomatoes, the tomato purée and 150ml water. Bring to the boil and then simmer for 5 minutes.
