    • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 2 teaspoons dried basil
    • 1 pinch salt
    • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar
    • 1 tablespoon tomato sauce
    • 3 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 skinless, boneless chicken breasts, cut into thin strips

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:25min  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Stir in the spaghettini and return to a boil. Cook the pasta until it has cooked through but is still firm to the bite, about 6-8 minutes. Drain well and keep warm.
    2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large frypan over medium heat. Stir in the tomatoes; cook until they soften and begin to break down. Stir in the garlic powder, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, sugar and tomato sauce. Heat sauce through and reserve.
    3. Heat the remaining 3 tablespoons oil in a separate cast iron frypan over medium heat. Stir in chicken; cook until browned. Stir in crushed garlic cloves; cook for 1 additional minute.
    4. Remove chicken from frypan and reserve. Turn heat to high. Stir the green capsicum, red capsicum, onion and mushrooms into the frypan and cook until they begin to soften. Stir in browned chicken. Turn heat to medium and cook until chicken is no longer pink in the centre and the vegetables are cooked through, about 5 minutes.
    5. Toss the chicken and vegetables with the tomato sauce and the hot pasta. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.

    This was amazing, everyone loved it. The sauce was so good, only drawback is there isn't very much of it so I added a little extra spagetti sauce to it to make it last longer.  -  14 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This dish is very good. I am not a seasoned cook so the prep time took longer than anticipated. Also, I got the wrong type of tomatoes so had to add Contadina tomato paste. It turned out okay but would have been delicious had I found plum tomatoes!  -  03 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I enjoyed this recipe. It had a nice flavor, my only complaint is that it seemed to be a bit greasy because I kept adding more olive oil to the peppers and onions to they wouldn't burn - next time I may add chicken broth to cut down on the oil and have more of a saucy texture - this didn't really have enough liquid. I will make again with just a couple alterations though!  -  15 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
