  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts⁣
  • 4 Tbsp olive oil⁣
  • Kosher salt⁣
  • Black pepper⁣
  • 2 pints grape tomatoes or 8-10 Roma tomatoes diced⁣
  • 3-4 cloves of garlic minced ⁣
  • 1/3 cup olive oil ⁣
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt⁣
  • Freshly ground pepper⁣
  • 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves thinly sliced ⁣
  • 1 lb package favorite pasta chose gluten free, if desired⁣
  • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese for garnish ⁣


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.⁣
  • Place chicken breasts on plate. Sprinkle with 1 Tbsp olive oil on top side. Sprinkle with kosher salt and pepper.⁣
  • Heat a large cast iron skillet or oven-safe skillet over medium high heat. Add 2 Tbsp olive oil. Place chicken, seasoned side down in pan. While seasoned side is down, drizzle other side with remaining 1 Tbsp olive oil. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.⁣
  • Cook 3 minutes on first side or until nicely browned. Flip and cook 3 minutes on other side. Chicken will not be fully cooked at this point. Place skillet directly in oven and cook for 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 165 degrees.⁣
  • While chicken is cooking, prepare pasta and bruschetta. Fill large stockpot with water, liberally salting, and bring to a boil. Once boiling, add spaghetti and cook until al dente, about 1-2 minutes less than package instructions. ⁣
  • For the bruschetta, combine all remaining ingredients (tomatoes through fresh basil) in large serving bowl. Let sit to marinate flavors. Occasionally stir while pasta is cooking to evenly disperse flavor. ⁣
  • Remove chicken from oven and slice on a slight angle. Set aside until ready to plate. ⁣
  • ⁣When pasta is done cooking, use tongs to remove from pasta water and add directly to bruschetta mixture. By not draining the pasta, you get a touch of extra moisture for the sauce. Gently toss pasta and sauce to evenly coat noodles. Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and sliced chicken.
