  • 8 oz fettuccine
  • 2 tsp olive or vegetable oil
  • ¾ cup onion finely chopped
  • 1 ½ cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 2 ½ cups medium tomatoes chopped- I used grape tomatoes
  • 3 cups chicken or turkey breast cooked and cubed
  • 4 TBSP olive oil divided- flavored oils like garlic or basil are amazing!
  • 3 TBSP chopped fresh or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
  • ½ tsp salt
  • tsp red pepper sauce {optional}


  • Prep: Start by cooking the pasta as directed on package, drain when cooked. Then, lightly toss with olive oil and cover to keep warm.
  • You also need the chicken cooked before assembling. I use half of a rotisserie chicken to help simplify this meal, but you can make your chicken at home if you'd like. Give this recipe for shredded chicken a try!
  • Assemble: Next, chop the onion and garlic clove into small pieces. Then, in a 10-inch nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2 TBSP of oil and cook the onion and garlic, stirring occasionally, until the onion is tender.
  • Stir in the remaining 2 TBSP of oil, tomatoes, cooked chicken, basil, salt, and red pepper sauce (if desired). All ingredients except the fettuccine, then reduce the heat to medium.
  • Proceed to cover the pan and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until mixture is hot, and the tomatoes are soft.
  • Serve: Plate the cooked fettuccine and scoop the tomato and chicken mixture over the pasta. Serve hot and enjoy!
