Spaghetti with Sauteed Chicken and Grape Tomatoes is a great website for finding quick and simple recipes. In my quest to find healthier recipes that fall within my diet guidelines (see Fitness Friday post about diets), I've found this website to be extremely helpful. This weekend I decided to try the Spaghetti with Sauteed Chicken and Grape Tomatoes.
The meal is delicious and even the Pre-Hubby thought it was great!

2 chicken breasts, diced in 1 inch cubes
cooking spray
1/2 tsp each of dried oregano and dried basil
kosher salt and fresh pepper
8 oz spaghetti
2 cups grape tomatoes, halved
6 cloves garlic, smashed and coarsely chopped
4 tsp extra virgin olive oil
4 tbsp chopped fresh basil

The first thing you want to do is get your spaghetti cooking. Follow the package instructions and get some water in a pot to begin boiling.

With spaghetti started, dice up the chicken into 1 inch cubes. Once complete, put in a large ziploc bag with pepper, salt, oregano, and basil. Heat a large skillet on high. After the pan is heated, spray with a bit of olive oil cooking spray and cook the chicken for 3-4 minutes, until there is no pink left.

While the chicken is cooking, cut your grape tomatoes in half and chop up the garlic. Your chicken should be done by now, so remove it from the stove and set aside. Using the skillet, respray with a light dusting of olive oil cooking spray and add the garlic. You will want to saute until golden brown, but do not burn it! Next, add the diced tomatoes and turn heat to medium-low. Add a dash of salt and pepper and saute the tomatoes and garlic for another 3-4 minutes.

By now your pasta should be done and drained. Add the pasta to the tomato mixture and toss well. Add the fresh basil and the chicken to the mixture and toss together. Serve and top with cheese if you like!

Here is a slideshow of the process.

A quick and simple meal that everyone will love! Let me know if you try this recipe yourself and if you enjoy it!

Peace and Good JuJu,
